Diagonals 2v1 (20 mins)

20x20 area.

Reds R2 (or R3) play into an advanced player R1 who is central who must take more than 1 touch.

B1 moves from the marker only when R1 receives the ball - marker is adjustable to enable R1 to gain take first touch. Closer becomes much more difficult.

R1 and B1 go 1v1 and R1 must find a pass to either R2 or R3. (R3 is shown)

R1 and R3 then go 2v1 to the goal opposite R3 (goal L as shown).

Must be a weak foot finish.

If B1 wins ball he tries to finish in goal R.

Play for 2 mins and swap teams.

*R1 to be alert/on toes to make first touch safe and set up for second touch/pass

*use of diagonal moves to create space for pass

*B1 to be 1st defender, cut down options for passing

*R1 to be strong on the ball

*R2 and R3 to move sideways to create better options

Ball out of play = restart with attacking team and players rotate back to corners.

Progress by moving B1 start position closer, but not intercepting initial pass.

Also progress by allowing R1 to call from a pass from either R2 OR R3
