Dribbling after back-pass

  • Organisation

    The goalkeeper stands in the goal. Two players position themselves on the field as shown in the diagram. Player A stands between the penalty area and the side line and roughly 4-5 meters from the byline. Player B stands roughly 20-25 away from the centre of the goal.
  • Process

    Player A dribbles to the baseline and passes the ball back to player B. Player B takes the ball and tries to dribble around the goalkeeper. Intensity: 4-6 rounds then change sides. Equipment: 1 field goal
  • Tip

    The goalkeeper must first concentrate on the passing player and determine whether the player will dribble to the goal, cross, pass or shoot. Depending on the action he will have to reduce the shot angle but also keep an eye on the player in the middle of the field. - The goalkeeper should try to aware of just the ball and not react to the player’s illusiveness - Remain standing upright for as long as possible, stretch arms out and keep feet shoulder-width apart. - When coming off your line quickly limit the attacker’s angle. Just before the attack, slow down and move more gently on the balls of your feet. - Don’t spread legs too far apart - The goalkeeper must only move as far as the penalty spot.
