Play of the Week – Defending Unbalanced

This week were going to look at defending unbalanced, this is when there is a 3v2 situation but can be used with any numbers. 

You can use your full team for this drill, pit your forwards vs defenders of required. 

Key points for the defenders are to jockey strikers away from each other and isolate player with ball. 

Be patient if the ball is central and react quickly to heavy touches, miss pass etc. 

Make sure your defenders are very vocal with this drill and encourage each other to work together. 

Give it a go and let us know how you get on.
