Screen 1

Each end zone is 2 attackers v 1 defender, and the central is 2v2 matched up with midfielders.

Encourage the midfielders to work as a pair and try and combine to play forwards. Combinations could include; 1-2/wall pass, dummy, 1 high and 1 to the ball or even clearing the midfield so the defenders can play straight through. The lone attacker should be always moving, looking to receive the ball at feet. If successful try playing the opposite way back through the midfield.

Variations:

As a progression allow the midfielders to drive from their central zone to the attacking end zone

Allow defenders to join in wide areas for a set amount of time

Allow centre forwards to “drop in” to receive and midfielder to make a forward run

Add a goal at one end
