Soccer drill to get players exploiting 2v1 situations

Use the following soccer coaching session to get your players working together to win the ball. The aim is to get them applying pressure, hopefully so their opponents will make a mistake and your players will win the ball.  This soccer drill is also a good team-building exercise.

Exploit 2v1 situations

The first attacker enters the pitch and passes the ball into the top attacker. The two defenders immediately apply pressure to the attacker and try to win the ball.

If they win possession, they are free to take on the first attacker in a 2v1 situation.

After each attack, two new defenders enter the game. The first attacker becomes the top attacker. The top attacker rests.
