Possession Game 8 V 6

Coach concentrates on the role of CMs showing for the ball between the lines to give themselves space to combine and switch the play effectively.

The scenario shown demonstrates how CM 1 drops on the opposite side to the ball. This will drag a CM back to mark opening up space for that player's second movement between the lines.

CM 2 then moves back to show for the ball from the LB and combine by playing ahead of CM1 in space. The movement to show for the ball again takes a defender out of position freeing up space for a switched ball to retain possession.
