Today, I’m sharing a drill that I particularly enjoy and often implement when facing teams that play direct and force you to “activate” after winning the second ball. As you can see, it’s a very straightforward exercise that begins with a long goalkeeper’s throw to a previously defined space where two teams (4 vs 4) will compete for ball possession after winning the second play.

The team that wins the ball is required to complete 5-6 passes before being able to attack. To do this, they must move the ball out of that space through one of the side players of the same color who acts on the sides. This, in turn, allows the player to connect with the farthest teammate, creating a 3 vs 3 attacking situation.

I hope you like it!
