Whilst ensuring the passes are kept short, the idea of this game is to try and get the players to play within the triangle shapes made by the cones. By adding pressure, this helps the players with their decision making whilst under pressure. It also increases the likeness of the drill to a game scenario.

Adding another player to the pressure aspect of the game means that it is more difficult for the players looking to keep the ball as both their time and space is reduced. Although I want this to opccur I don't want both attacking players at the same side of the pitch and so they are alloted four players they must close down. By adding the wingers, the game has more of a game like feel as you now have two banks of 4 representing both attack and midfield.

The final stage of this session would be to have 10 players set up as one team, the rest of the squad would then become the opposing players. In my example, this would amount to a 10v 5 game, this is the cosest you will be able to accomplsh to a real game and will allow your players to set up in the preferred formation and work on keeping the ball.

Ensure you encourage the players to create angles for the pass and that their off the ball movement is crucial to keeping possession.
