Introducing the Overlap - Overlapping Attack!

Create the extra man with the attacking overlap - a fluid and attacking style of passing football for all players - defence, midfield or strikers

Preview Plan

Description

The first player plays a one-two pass with player 2, who passes back in front of player 1's looping run.

Player 1 then dribbles with the ball either to the half-way line or the by-line where they then:

either pass to player 3 on the half-way line who then dribbles to the outside of the 16 yard box and shoot

or cross the ball into the box for the attacking player to attack.

Coaching points

With more advanced players you can run these two variations simultaneously - with younger players coach them individually.

Look for solid and confident passing, with fast running.

Ensure shots hit the target - if players are consistently missing then instruct your players to strike the ball a little less hard, focussing on accuracy rather than power.
