The moment the attacker shoot or the defending achieves his role, the next attack commences. Attackers have 4 seconds to succeed in getting past their defender, and are not allowed to stop the ball or go backwards.

Open up to 2v2 (so RB & RCB vs 2 attackers in two conjoined boxes, and the same for LCB & LB).

RB must show wide, RCB must show towards the right side, LCB towards the left side, and LB wide to the left.
