The objective here is for players to recognise space available, allowing them to play forward when possible and for our floating player to play on the half turn, checking space and penetrating defensive lines with defense-splitting passes. Key Coaching Points Focus on that final pass and clinical finishing by attacking players, looking to hit corners and work goalkeepers with every opportunity.
