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, both players begin on the same side line as the coach. The ball is rolled into play and the two players enter the field. It is then up to each player to beat their opponent and score in their allocated goal. This drill tests ball control, speed, skill and shooting accuracy.
