Welcome to the FineSoccer Drills Newsletter. Today’s featured activity works on possession, changing fields and quick attacks.
Start with a 5 v 4 situation in a 35 x 35 area in the corner of half the field. Two other attacking players are on the other half of the field out wide. There should also be a keeper in goal.
Next, you can add a defender into the second half so once the 5 passes have been made, they can’t just kick the ball to the other side but rather have to find the open player but it will be a numbers up situation (which is frequently the case in a real game as well
This is a great way to get the players to think in terms of maintaining possession, creating space on the far side and then switching fields for the quick attack.
Although this isn’t the point of the DVD, this activity and other variations can be seen in the DVD The Brazilian Box Midfield
Have a great day!
