Soccer Drill – Exploiting the Space Behind a Player


The following soccer drill is perfect to exploit the space behind an opposing teams player. The drill is designed to move the ball to the free player between the lines and within the available space behind the defensive triangle, created by the opposition.

Soccer-Drill Exploiting SpaceProcedure

After the long ball from D to A, the receiver passes the ball to B who moves to receive in front of the mannequin. By this way we replicate the pressure applied and the defensive triangle created by the opposition. The aim is to move the ball to C with a combination which includes a third line pass and then a back pass using D as link player. Player D after receiving makes a pass to a mini goal and all players move one position forward.
