This series focuses on 1-v-1 drills that incorporate a range of skill-based attacking and defending scenarios for players to improve their awareness, confidence and ability.
In this particular drill, the defender starts in the centre of the grid with the attacker positioned on the side line. The ball is played by the defender to the attacker who then has the option to shoot in either goal during the 1-v-1. This drill tests control, 1-v-1 skills and shooting accuracy. Stay tuned for the next in the series!
