2. Defend and attack together

Area – 60 x 40. Two teams, 7v7

The teams play against each other. The rules of the game are:

Attack together.

•When the attacking team looks like they are going to score, every player on the attacking team must be across the half way line in the attacking half for a goal to count.

Defend together.

•All the defenders must be in their defending half. If not, and the attacking team scores, the goal counts as double.

Variation

Play two touch

Add one or two neutral players

Coaching points:

Attacking together does not mean leave open spaces at the back.

Defend together
