Defensive Shape (30 mins)

Work on building from the back and defensive shape.

First of all, work on the shape by getting the goalkeeper to play out to any of his defenders. Can the defensive keep the ball of the attackers for say 30 seconds. Can full backs push on and have the centre halfs split for sitting midfielder to get on ball or when centre halfs split give ball to them. When play breaks down, can keeper get the ball out asap.

Encourage movement of defenders quickly and vary who gets the ball from keeper. Encourage being comfortable on the ball and not panic.

Next have the deepest attacking midfielder start with possession of ball and attack the defence. Can the defenders keep their shape and discipline and not get dragged out of position. Vary game by getting the deepest attacking midfielder to kick a ball in air to any defender who has to head it back to attackers to encourage game like situations
