The substitute game

Play a normal game with players trying to keep possession and score goals.

Players must look to use the ball intelligently and not hang onto it allowing opponents the chance to tackle them.

The player that loses the ball is substituted!! The idea being players dont want to be the one subbed.

Play carries on while the substitution happens meaning players must be focused!!

Progerssion

Player has 5 seconds to win ball back in order to avoid substitution
