Coaching Points:

+ Players off ball need to make dangerous runs (diagonal or overlap)

+ Player on ball needs to engage the defender and create space for others to run into

+ Defensively, make play predictable and slow it down to take speed away

+ Defensively, consider the transition to defense (need 1 player back to delay)

+ GK quick distribution
