5 v 5 w/gk Defending

5 v 5 to goal with GK and counter goal (15-20 minutes)

3 lines start at top where one player with the ball will dribble into play. The two lines next to goal need to quickly join so that they are not offsides. The defending red team will keep shape to win the ball and counter goal and use GK as a supporting player. The defensive team will play a 1-3-1.

Play will be restarted once someone has scored or the ball is out of play. Allow defensive team to organize before starting a new group.

Focus should be how does the defensive team commuciate and react.

Does the 1st defender delay or have them play back.

How is the body position and which direction are they playing the attacker.

Does the 2nd defender provide good angle of support and cover.

Does the 3rd defender provde balance.
