DEFENDING in PAIRS: Review and reinforce the key mechanics
WARM-UP: (Dribbling Tech. Focus)
“2 v 2” DUALS:
“4 v 4” ZONAL GAME (+GK’s):
1. Players are restricted to their specific attacking/defending half.
2. Rotate players into the attacking zone on each goal or at specific time intervals.
3. Exercise should progress to a stage where a player may follow the ball into the attack half.
4. The ‘buffer’ zone may be widened in order to emphasize passing and timing of runs.
