It is divided into two equal areas - Players in possession stay in position, so they perform the combinations and the supporting movements accordingly. Defenders only attack the ball possessors in their own group, so 3v1 game situations evolve. The 3 inside midfielders can combine with each other, but the defenders don't disturb their combinations they can be under pressure when step into one of the 3v1 situations. In case one of the defenders intercepts the ball, he gives it back and the ball possession continues.) FINISH WITH SMALL SIDED GAME 9 V 9
