Organisation:

40X40 yrds grid marked in one side of the pitch

16 players - 4 Reds (+floater) and 3 Defenders (+GK)

Set of footballs placed inside the goals and just after the half way line (inside the centre circle)

Instructions:

Set play in both 1/4s of the pitch. Start play by neutral playing unopposed pass to full back who then attempt to build up play. If defending team retrieves the ball, then the objective is quiet simply playing it to floater.

Coaching points:

1) Make a quick run – speed and courage

2) Be confident about your decision

3) Ask for the ball - loud and clear

4) Body position to receive into space

5) Look for the end product (cross/pass/shoot)

60 Use the common player for overloads

Istructions:

Play 4-3 (+GK and neutral player) formation, but Reds score in goals and Blues must link up with neutral player before scoring in small gates.

Progressions:

1- Play 4-4 against a GK-4-3 formation.

2- A goal after a overlap count as 2 goals

Coaching points:

1) Recognize where is the ball, teammates and opponents

2) Look for the space in front of you to run into

3) Anticipate when the ball will come to your side (recognize switching play) / when the support in front of the ball for the winger in possession is needed

4) Track winger movements – recognize when he will create space for the full-back to run into / use your own initiative and create space

5) Communicate with wingers (7&11) and other players “go away” “play” “go inside” etc.

Instructions:

Teams in 4-1-3+GKs formations play normal game, but when attacking try not to have more than 4 attackers in each half.

Coaching points:

1- When ball is in central areas

a) play to winger who then drives in for full back to oerlap

b) play ball to full back who then link up with winger for a overlap

c) play ball to CF who then pretend that is linking up with winger. However, winger must run infield to allow full back to overlap, so that he can receive pass from CF.

2) Move as a unit with intention to overload, penetrate, link up and end up in a clinical position

3) Be aware of the transition when loosing possession
