Full backs defending

Focus on the full back position in this session, working with your defenders to help develop their skills, making sure they know how to defend when isolated and in an unit.

In the modern game, the full back position is often a key part to any team, with more attacking full backs such as Antonio Valencia looking to go forward at every opportunity. However it’s important that they don’t neglect their defensive duties so help your full backs to understand different movements and anticipate the opposition’s play.

Work on different defensive techniques such as knowing when to press and when to drop, maintaining a good body position and how to cut off the opposition’s options by closing their angles.

Get your full backs defending with quality and make your team complete!
