2v1 Attacking: Finishing after give-and-go or passing into the Deep

  • Organisation

    • 3 Dummys or Cones

  • Process

    The central midfielder plays the ball into the striker, who creates some space from the dummy (simulating the defender) and passes into the full-back.

    The full-back takes his first touch into space and plays a little one-two with the winger, who positions himself behind the dummy and then immediately provides a passing angle on the edge of the box.

    The right winger receives the ball from the full-back and dribbles towards the defender.

    The striker supports the winger in a 2v1 attack.

  • Tip

    Coaching Points:

    • Attacking players have to try to finish on target immediately

    • Defender is outnumbered, so he has to make sure to force players wide and block off passes
