Football Drill Demonstration


The practice now evolves as one of the two defenders in blue now takes up a position in one of the attacking squares, creating a 3 v 1 situation in one area, with the other defender in blue remaining in the middle zone still attempting to intercept any through pass.

If the attackers are successful, and get the ball through to the other end of the area then the defender in the middle now moves into the other zone to once again make a 3 v 1 situation.

Coaching points

  • Defenders need to work on pressing the ball, focusing on body position to dictate to the opposition trying to force errors.
  • The defenders still work on angles and distances from each other.
