2v1 with recovering defender. Painting the picture and stressing the importance of decision making for young players.

With a brief numbers advantage the aim here is to play quick and create a chance on goal. If the defender presses the player on the ball the best option may be to pass to the other player, if they stand off then going alone and taking a shot may be the best option.

Defending – coach delaying the attack by cutting off the pass with a side on body position and trying to narrow down the angle for the player on the ball, always showing away from goal and delaying for the recovering defender to get back.

If the defenders win the ball they have a goal they can score into.

Teach striker movement, scanning to know what’s around you and show young players there options depending on what the defenders decide to do. Make it fun and competitive between the teams
