To coach the players where and when to get into attacking goalscoring positions
Organisation - 11v11 Practice
1) Early Runs
a) as the ball is played forwards, support should be quick with both centre midfielders looking to give instant support to the centre forwards at angle.
b) the wide midfielders should either be high up the field giving an instant passing option to the centre forwards or making a wide run for the flick on from the centre forward
c) the back line should be very quickly be pushed up to squeeze the opposition's space in case they regain possession. It also forces the midfield on and brings the defence on as supporting options.
d) the 2nd centre forward should look to arc his run for the flick on
e) the keeper should move higher up in his box ready to anticipate the through ball
2) Fullbacks supporting and overlapping
One defender should be looking to get forward to support in every attack. This is usually the full backs but can be the centre half if he sees a good opportunity to support the centre midfield, or dribble through the middle.
Otherwise the nearest full back should look to get as far forward as possible.
Either by supporting the wide midfielder to create an overload or by overlapping the wide midfielder.
Which ever one of the defenders goes forwards, it's paramount that the other defenders tuck across to cover at the back.
3) Midfield splitting the back line
The ball being played wide is the ideal time for central midfielders to look to split the opposition's back line.
Due to the pace they can get due to their initial depth, even a simple straight line run can be dangerous if the ball is timed well.
They may also look to run into space depending on the space created by the movements of the forwards.
The opposite wide midfielder can also commit forward and is an excellent option to make a late run at the far post.
All runs should be timed so not to get into the space too early.
