Coaching Corner

Beating a defender with skill


Aim - To encourage players to express themselves. To increase confidence in taking defenders on in 1 vs 1 situations. To improve skills and tricks.

Key Points

  1. 1. Good 1st touch.
  2. 2. Encourage positive play.
  3. 3. Change of pace is important. It is just as effective as beating a defender with a skill.
  4. 4. Keep the ball close when taking on the defender on but as soon as you get the defender off balance you must accelerate and get the ball out of your feet.
