Welcome to the FineSoccer Drills Newsletter. Today’s featured activity works on 2 v 1 and 3 v 2 attacking and defending. Attacking activities such as this one can be found in the book Training Creative Goalscorers.
Start with a grid that is 50 x 40 with a midfield line. There are full sized goals on each end line and a keeper in each goal. The black team will start 2 v 1 in their attacking half and there are 2 blacks and 2 yellows in the other half, waiting.
When the black players win the ball they become the attackers and new defenders take their place and new attackers join on for yellow.
If you are like me, you will find the rotation never seems to work perfectly but the key is I don’t worry about things like that. I prefer the players work things out on their own rather than worry if they went to the correct line etc.
