Opposed (15 mins)

Narrow Opposition Making Play Predictable

2 Strikers & 2 CM are introduced for the opposition.

Managing the Opposition - Their tactics will be to play as a narrow 4, making play predictable, so shadowing the Blue team, cutting off angles and opportunities to play forward.

NOTE: If there are issues with numbers, Coach will feed the ball into CB, or Defenders will play as 3 CB.

#5 & #6 look to drop deep & one will collect from GK - try to collect at an angle to encourage vision of team mates & opposition & to make it less complex to physically move forward.

Q. CAN THE #5 or #6 DRIVE FORWARD?

If the opposition prevents the ball being played to #5 or #6...

#4 drops deep to collect. Play back to GK, wide to #3 / #2 or if not safe, turn & drive forward. If #4 cannot collect safely....

#2 & #3 are high & wide - at an angle which means they have created either an aerial option to receive or a firm pass from the GK's hands / feet.

If neither of these options are safe, due to the opposition reading the pass or closing the channels...

GK distributes to the highest player - #10
