Game - 4v4 - Play (20 mins)

Set up:

Coaching Points:

Attack

- Change of direction(Fake left go right), change of pace (Turtle to cheetah) 

- First touch towards the opponent (Open foot to 90 degrees)

- Dribble at players to make them engage 

- Create a 2 vs 1 with overlap and underlap (Stay off the shoulder with defender)

Defend

- Defenders close down (big steps, small steps, jockey)

- Defenders make the attack predictable

- We must defend well in training to improve our 1v1 attack. Once we improve the attack, we must improve the defending

If there are too many players, mirror the session into two grids. Demo off one grid

Values
