Semi Opposed (15 mins)

Organization:

Set up as above - narrower channels (8 yards) so that receiving to turn on back foot is harder to accomplish. Tight space means that pass may have to go to middle player with pressure on their back.

Instructions:

Play begins with player (A) on ball taking a touch out of his feet to one side or another. Middle player (B) checks away and comes back to receive the ball.

(B) has two touches, one to control and one to find the target player. Player (C) blocks the pass to (D) and as the pass is made. C pressures B from behind. 50% to start.

Player B takes touch inside and finds D.

Player D dribbles back at speed.

A becomes defender(C), B becomes targetman(D), C becomes attacker,(B) D becomes original passer (A)

Progression: Player D beats Player C with Ronaldo chop/Maradona/V-move etc on way back.

Coaching Points:

- Checking in a straight line v. checking at an angle (angle opens up option for pass to D)

- Front foot v. back foot

- Good touch out of feet and head up.

- Movement of target to create passing lane.

- Movement of middle player to check away

- Communication
