Football Drill Demonstration

Description

Two attacking players against one defender.

The player who starts with the ball passes the ball square to the other player. This player runs towards the defender (isolating the defender) allowing the other player to loop round and overlap them to receive the ball in the space created.

After receiving the pass this player should then have a shot at goal.

Coaching points

Encourage players to hold their run, playing out this practice as though the defender is the deepest player (you don't want your players running offside).

Once players have completed this drill the shooter should collect the ball and then both players join the back of the other line.
