Defensive Phase in the 3-5-2

Description: 3-5-2 defensive principles

Divide players in 2 teams of 9: 1GK + CB + 4Mids + 1St

Red team starts the game from the back.

They move the ball around trying to find a gap for a pass to the thirds

Blue team shiled the movements trying to stop the through pass

If the reds are able to make the pass to the other line of players, a normal attacking action is performed.

Red players can enter into the box to try to shoot in target.

In this case only one of the blue team can get back to help the defensive phase.

This player cannot takle the red teamin the box C but has to focus in getting in the defensive shape.

If the blues win the ball in the box B they can perform a transition to attack and one of the red players can get back and help the defensive phase.

If the blues win the ball in the box D they can start the game and build from the back
