Screen 2

Organisation:

- Play 75 yards long and use full width

- Blue team in GK-4-2-2

- Red team in GK-2-4-2

Instructions:

Play normal game, but whenever the ball is out start from either one of the Goalkeepers.

Progressions:

- Both teams need to play through midfield before they can score.

- If team in Blue score from a long ball from Centre back to Striker counts as 2 goals

Coaching points:

* Ball central

- Midfielders to use width of the 18 yard box and striker to go long (preferably occupy weakest defender)

- 2 Defenders one mark from behind and the other stay in front of the striker

* Ball wide

- Opposite wide midfielder to be between the 6 yard line and 18 yard line

- Striker to get prepared to attack space between penalty spot and near post, as well as to get ready to be a link up play

- Holding midfielder to be outside the 18 yard box

- Number 10 to prepare to be inside the 18 yard box and attack anywhere between the penalty spot and the back post.

What if's

*Ball in holding midfielder

- Always look for split passes higher on the pitch

- Using imaginery line between penalty spot and half way line spot, striker and number 10 should aim to play in opposite halves

*Ball in number 10

- Wide men should aim to attack space between full back and centre back

- Striker should always attack space in behind and try to create a gap betwen centre backs for a shot

Note:

Width is not prioritised in this formation so team in Red should move up and down the field as a unit.
