Timing Forward Runs

The ball is played into a 5v5 with the passing player (holding midfielder) then joining the attack at the same time as a recovering midfielder for the other team. On winning the ball encourage the defending team to play into one of the small goals or pass to the holding midfielder of the other team to quickly transition the drill to start again.

Coaching:

-Movements to create space for runs in behind
-Wide players keeping their width to allow space between the back 4
-Front 3 reading each others movements – if wide player comes in the central player must now provide width

Progression:

-Free play
