Type of Pressure: Loose.
> Pressure in front.
> Turn and face. Commit player.
> Isolating a defender, in a 1v1 scenario where if needed player can combine with another teammate on a 2v1.
> Width - to stretch out the other team.
> Depth - Support.
> Length - Create space to enter into.
Moves: (A) Shoulder Feint; (B) Inside-Outside. * Outside touch = pass to teammate *
Decisions looking to affect:
1. Ability to identify amount of pressure being applied to the ball, as the player receives it.
2. Choice to open up on the back foot - closer to the opponent, or receive the ball on the front foot to protect the ball and shield it away from the defender.
3. Recognition of the second defender. Is the second defender in a good spot to cover the first defender if I beat him/her? If so, do Ihave a supporting player I can pass the ball to?
4. Mentality after passing the ball. Can you quickly signal to your teammate for a Give and Go to get around the defender, or support their run and prepare yourself for the cross?
