Turn and Face

This week's exercises are from the Liverpool Youth Academy in our book, "Modern Soccer Coaching - Technical"

Combination Three

Player 1 plays to Player 2 who receives the ball and turns to face the mannequin. Player 3 runs across the field to the middle cone. Player 2 passes the ball down the line to Player 3. Player 2 then makes a diagonal run to the cone that Player 3 left. Player 3 receives the ball and then takes on Player 2 who has become a passive defender. Player 3 beats the defender and then sprints the ball back to the start. The drill starts again with Player 4 passing the ball to Player 1 who has moved into position next to the mannequin.

Coaching Points

  • Player 2’s movement to the corner after the pass
  • Quality of Player 3’s dribble to beat the defender
  • All previous coaching points
