Soccer: Decision-making and creating the overlap

This is a great site. The days of scratching practice drills and back...
Andrew

DESCRIPTION

The player stood on the half-way line passes to the player up field and then runs in to create an overlapping run.

The player on the ball can choose to:

  1. Take on their defender.
  2. Pass to the supporting striker.
  3. Pass to the overlapping player.

The attackers should play out the drill and try to score.
