In a situation of 3v3 inside the box, and 4 floaters playing outside the box and shaping as a back line. All the players are limited to 2 touches (we can progress it to 1 touch for the floaters). The objective of the attackers is to score a goal after playing the ball from one full back to the other one. If they don’t they can’t finish the action. The action can be finished by shooting or either by crossing (coming from a full back) and finishing. Recovery runs are allowed. If the defenders win the ball back, they can score without any condition. Progression: If our players accomplish the objective of the drill quick enough, we can add decision making during the offensive transition phase. If the defenders win the ball they have 2 options: (1) finish the action going forward (same as previously described), and (2) start the offensive phase using one of the defenders. In this case, then they need to play from one full back to the other before finishing the action. Coaching points: body shape, defensive timing, optimum width, optimum depth, receiving between lines, oriented control, distance of relation, distance in the line, and distance in between lines. REMEMBER: it will be more beneficial for our players if we focus on one or two coaching points.
