Player A passes to B and overlaps him. Player B passes with his first touch to C. C passes the ball for A to run onto who passes to D and then takes his place behind him. D now starts the same sequence with C and B in the other direction. Players B and C should regularly change places with the other players.
Start by running the drill slowly and then speed up. The receiver should always make a small, dynamic dummy run away from or to the side of the ball before receiving the ball. The drill can be extremely tiring when conducted quickly with only six players.
– Under time pressure, this drill is very game realistic.
– The reciever should call for the ball.
– Pass and run timing is important
– Players often run faster than their pass.
– Don’t forget the runs.
– Demand good pass precision.
