Defending in pairs

Aim - To improve communication between defenders and to get them thinking as a unit when defending.

Key Points

  1. 1. Ensure there is good communication between the defenders.
  2. 2. Defenders are outnumbered so they must be patient and wait for a bad pass or a mis-control before deciding to shut the ball down.
  3. 3. When pressing the ball, make sure they go together, as the offside rule is active and they stand a good chance of catching the attackers offside.
