Soccer Drill Demonstration
Goalkeeper passes to player 2, who must attempt to dribble the ball past player 1 and score a goal. Player 1 assumes a sideways position and blocks the path to the goal. If the defender wins the ball, he should try to dribble over the end line. Rotate positions.
Allow the player to shoot as soon as he receives the ball. The player must close down the space to the ball and get into line between the attacker and the goal as quickly as possible.
The defender should make a curved run to the ball, coming down the line between ball and goal. The defender assumes a sideways position, legs are bent.
Can the defender fake to get the ball to force the attacker one way? The defender should always stay between the attacker and the goal, angling him to the corners.
To make this drill easier for the defender reduce the distance between them and the attacker.
To make the drill harder for the defender, increase distance between them and the attacker.Read more »
