Progression 1 – 3 v 2 on the Counter Attack

The real focus in the initial stages is how you initiate the counter attack, identifying space to penetrate into the striker. At the same time, we are looking at supporting angles and distances of the most advanced support player when creating the 2 v 1 overload. 

Progression 1 – 3 v 2 on the Counter Attack

On winning possession, teams can now provide 2 supporting runners to link up with the hold up striker with one defender tracking runners, resulting in a 3 v 2 in attacking zone.

Progression 2 | Rotational Movement in Advanced Area

Our final progression now requires our striker to drop in to the possession area to combine as soon as the team wins possession, this triggers a teammate inside the area to make an off the ball run into the attacking zone. Players can finish in a 1 v 1, or our striker can support to create a 2 v 1 to finish.

Key Coaching Points

– Assess movement of A and position of D to select best passing option. Execution and nature of forward passing, with emphasis on accuracy, weight and whether aerial or along ground.

– Remaining on-side. Finishing skills and composure in front of goal between striker and supporting runner.

– Precise control to enable MF’s to play with head up and assess opportunity to play into striker with quality and accuracy.
