FOOTBALL PROBLEM (5 mins)

MAIN MOMENT: BPO

KEY PRINCIPLE: DENY THE OPPOSITION TIME AND SPACE:.

5W DEFINITION:

WHAT? OUR FOOTBALL PROBLEM WAS WE PRESSED WITH OUR #6 & #8 TOO HIGH WHICH ALLOWED AUSTRALIA THE SPACE TO FIND THEIR #10.

WHO? #4 #3 #6 #8 #9 #10

WHERE? IN OUR MIDDLE THIRD

WHEN? IN THE 11th MINUTE OUR #6 & #8 PRESSED TOO HIGH AND ALLOWED THE AUSTRALIAN DEFENDERS WHO HAD THE BALL JUST OUTSIDE HALF WAY PLAY IN BETWEEN US TO THEIR #10
