Full back Out of possession 2v1 defending excellence
This drill is really tricky for a fullback as they are up against two attackers and the decision-making and patience that is required to manage that situation is quite challenging.
You will need 3 people for this drill, two goals, cones to make a 15m x 10m pitch and loads of balls.
The drill starts when the full back passes the ball to one of the attackers. The Fullback must close down the attacker with the ball but must also ensure that the goal is defended and the pass to the other attacker is closed off. The full back must be low and ready to change direction at pace quickly.
