Part 2

Combination 2

The full back will play a direct pass on the floor to the centre midfielder's back foot 

The centre midfielder will play a bounce pass on 1 touch to take the weight out of the pass to set it back to the full back 

This bounce pass is a trigger for the striker to drop into the pocket to receive the ball and play a disguise pass to the winger who will make a straight run for the around the corner pass to be played into space 

On the winger's front foot they will play a ball into the box leading onto a curved run from the striker and a diagonal run set up by the centre midfielder 

After this combination the players will come in and reflect on how they did; what went well and what they could have done better

Coaching points: 

- Weight off pass - Focus on triggers - Adjusting body positioning - Timing runs to receive the ball and to create space to exploit
