Football Drill Demonstration

Description

Players are working in pairs.

Player 1 dribbles forward and player 2 shadows them, not trying to win the ball but trying to put pressure on the player in possession.

Coaching points

Defending player should keep their eyes on the ball and mirror the attacker's movement. This practice works on shadowing the ball and putting pressure on the attacker.

Often in football the easiest way to win the ball is to simply put pressure on your opposition and make them make the first move. This then allows you to read their movement and intercept the ball rather than over committing and making it easy for the attacker to get past you.
