Soccer coaching game to exploit 2v1s and 3v2s near goal

You can use this soccer game to practise exploiting 2v1s and 3v2s in front of goal.

How it works

The advantage switches as the attack changes direction after every phase of play.

How to set it up

Use a 40 yards by 30 yards area with a goal and a goalkeeper at each end.

How to play it

  • The central player dribbles on to the pitch and passes to one of the two opponents.
  • Immediately, a 2v1 situation begins.
  • Once this ball is played, two team mates join the defender and a 3v2 game commences in the opposite direction.
  • Rotate your players
  • Rotate the players' positions so both teams have a chance to attack 2v1 and 3v2.
