One on One

Only with plenty of practice will your players give you 100% when it comes to defending their own player. You cannot expect a player to perform a quality effort if this has not been practised at training. Most defence pull out of tight defence after two seconds.

As a coach you must strive for players to apply pressure for four seconds on every ball. Seven defenders and seven attackers. All players should learn both skills competently.
