Execution Warm Up: (15 mins)

10 x 20 area, with a gate on the left side and goal on the opposite.

A passes to B, B must take one touch then try to score in the goal. Defender pressures the ball and denys the goalscoring pass. If B cannot score, they pass back to A, who plays 1v1 with the D and dribbles through the gate.

Progress - can play 2v1, or A gets bonus point for dribbling over the line to opposite side with the goal.

Coaching Points:

body shape to pressure the ball - change of speed, side on, distance to the ball

denying the forward pass

using the sideline as a defender

keeping the game in front

when to press or delay
