Coaching points

Play quickly before opposition set up, scan and react to every pass...

Example option 1.

Yellow lines indicate possible forward leads to open space and provide circle presence.

RB supports forward ball in wide channel, RM in inside channel.  LM tracks forward through middle channel providing transfer option.

LB and CM track right, offering protection through the middle of the pitch, CB and sweeper defend central forward and Line to goal respectively.

Wide/high forwards are covered using contant scanning and communication from GK.
