Soccer Drill Demonstration


The pitch set up has a defending zone and an attacking zone, divided by a midfield channel.

2 defenders in the defending zone, 1 midfielder in the middle zone and 2 attackers in the attacking zone. 

Again, the non passing defender enters the midfield zone to create an overload. Either player located in the midfield zone can then enter the attacking zone to create another overload. 

Coaching points

Maintain good possession within the defensive zone and create good possession to be able to play forward. 

Midfielders movement away from the ball to create space to receive from defenders. 

Defenders entering the midfield zone identify where the space is created by the midfield players.
