Phase 1a (10 mins)

Coaching Point

- Number 9 bends run to cut off option to play to opposite central defender

- Number 11 edges across on first pass (cutting off pass into mini goal) and when central defender opens up to play pass they press the right back, bending run to cut off option inside. (11 to offer pass then press aggressively)

- Numbers 10 and 7 move across to condense play into right side of the pitch. Ten picks up the deep midfielder and 7 moves across to cover. 9 responsible for assisting 11 with pressure and ensuring centre half doesn't get back on the ball.
