2 v 1 Attacking Soccer Drill | (07-P3)

Updated: Nov 10

On this 2v1 and 3v2 soccer drill, we begin with defenders setting up either side of the defending third. One defender plays a pass into 1 of 2 attackers who attack the defender quickly to get a shot off against the goalkeeper.



We have one large goal for the attacking players to attack and 2 mini goals for the defender to attack if they win possession. Pass from each side and rotate attackers and defenders after 4-5 minutes.
