Screen 1

Setup:

- Blue team (Attacking) 2-3-2, Red team (Defending) 3-3-1.

- Blue 2 defenders, red striker and blue GK locked in to end zone (Shaded)

- Blue defenders combine to play out and into midfielders/strikers

- Reds defend, counter and score if they win possession

- Halfway line = offside line

Key points:

- Position of striker, screen pass in to Blue CM or split defenders to stop ball being switched?

- Position of midfielders, who pressures ball when it's passed in, covering angles of other two players

- Position of midfielders, screen pass in to strikers

- Position of defenders, no pressure on ball = drop, pressure on ball = press to close gap in front

- Position of defenders, marking (which side), cover, distance
