Football Drill Demonstration


Group in pairs. One ball between the pair. Repeat in 5 other areas for a total of 12 players.

Player 1 passes the ball across the area to player 2, who must control the ball with the inside of his foot. Player 2 then passes the ball back across the area. Player 1 repeats the practice. The object of the game is to roll the ball over the end line with out the opposing player stopping it. To score a goal, the ball must travel below waist height. Each player should pick his favorite national team and represent that country. The first country to score 5 goals wins the World Cup.

Progression: If you pass the ball back first time and score, you get 2 goals.
