Small Sided Game (15 mins)

Players will play 5 v 4 which includes the GK.

As shown when the players in red near the goal are ready they will quickly check in to receive the ball and players need to sort themselves out on decision making to go to goal. The players in blue will follow and jump in and defend and if they win the ball they can score on the counter goals.

Do players after having control of the ball create opportunities to go wide and set themselves up for a cross. Can you demonstronstate a Wall Pass to space or Overlap to space to create a cross and see what the players off the ball are doing to make themselves available.
