3v3 Counter Attack + Neutrals


One neutral goes into the center zone and plays as a midfielder for both teams (depending on ability level limit to two touches).

The other neutral players go into the end zones and work as forwards for the attacking team.

The rotation of the teams remains the same as in the previous game but this time they have a 5v3 when attacking as they can use their extra attacker or pass backwards to their supporting midfielder in the “free zone”.


Players must show the following:

  1. Speed and reaction
  2. Awareness
  3. Good finishing skills
  4. Good technique

Encourage players to concentrate of their speed of play. Make players aware how important to play quickly on and off the ball.
