Counter Attacking | Skill Practice (02-P1)

Set Up / Organisation
This Skill practice contains 16 players with a 7 v 7, including GKs, and 2 additional floating players. A 4 v 4 exists in a central area of 25 x 30 yards, with 2 floating players to support, in addition to an attacker and defender for both teams outside of the area. Objective is to break quickly in gaining possession to create an initial 2 v 1 overload in final third to finish. Initial objective is for one team to keep possession whilst other team aims to win possession to counter quickly off their supporting striker in a 2 v 1 in attacking zone.
