How do we create a 2 vs 1 situation?
Two players, an attacker and a defender, are situated on the goal line. Ten meters in front of the defender, a second attacker dribbles the ball toward him with the intention of beating him individually or passing the ball to his teammate on the left. With a triangular pass (direct or with not more than two ball touches), the attacker on the goal line returns the ball immediately into the run of his teammate who positions herself behind the defender. The latter, without leaving the goal line, tries to intercept the first or the return pass.
Points to consider when EXPLAINING a 2 vs 1
Set up two wide goals (about 8-10 meters in width and about 18 meters away from each other) for each field. Divide the children into two-player teams. Each play lasts three minutes, during which two players of one team alternately attack the goals opposite each other. Each goal is defended by one opponent only. To score, one of the two attackers has to dribble (control) the ball across the goal line.
The attack is concluded when
Independent of the result of the counterattack, the next 2 on 1 should be directed toward the opposite wide goal. The duration of the game is two attacking and two defending periods of 3 minutes for each team.
