Defending in and around the box

Squad split attackers and defenders.

Defenders start on goal line (2 v 2 to start) play a diagonal pass into the attackers who combine together to score a goal.

Defenders press quickly toward the ball to prevent shots or attackers enterering the area.

After a while increase numbers to 3 v 3 and 4 v 4, rotate roles to give attackers a chance to defend.

If defending team win the ball back can they play the ball through any of the attacking teams goals.

Technical

Defenders must communicate with each other, make quick decisions weather to press the ball, delay the play or track runners off the ball.

Encourage attackers to make overlapping runs to enhance defenders understanding of "passing players on" to avoid crossing over and maintain good shape.
