Soccer Drill Demonstration

Description

Working with one ball between 2 players pass the ball to each other.

When they receive the ball the player should try and control the ball with the outside of their foot, using their first touch to push the ball slightly in front and wide into space, for the player to follow and then play to their partner.

After each pass players should run back to the same spot to receive the ball.

Coaching points

First touch should at the same time cushion the incoming pass whilst also rolling it ever so slightly in front of the players, setting themselves up for the pass back to their partner.

Progression

Use both feet and practice using the first touch to push the ball across the body as well as out wide.
