Warm Up - Ball Mastery (10 mins)

Xavi - Whenever space isn't available looking to change direction (ball out of feet so can pick head up immediately)

Ronaldo - Looking to dribble where there is lots of space ahead of him (bigger touches, pick head up on touch, laces of foot nearest ball). Have adjacent space to sprint into and then sprint back into original area
