This Soccer Drill begins with the coach playing the ball into an attacking player who attacks a single defender and goal, with the support of a teammate (2 v 1 outfield). If the attacking team scores, an extra player joins in creating a 3 v 1.
If defenders don’t concede they get an extra defender (2 v 2). There cannot be an overload of more than 2 players throughout the soccer practice; rotate player roles.
