” When you play a match, it is statistically proven that players actually have the ball 3 minutes on average … So, the most important thing is: what do you do during those 87 minutes when you do not have the ball. That is what determines whether you’re a good player or not.“ – Johan Cruyff
Supporting Runs and Creating Space Outline:
Team and Small Group Offensive Soccer Tactics: keeping possession, creating space, fewer intercepted passes, creating better passing options, effective ball movement, combination passes, strong side overloads, switching the point of attack (strong side to weak side), support runs, forward runs, diagonal runs, decoy runs, overlapping runs, and how to create more scoring opportunities.
These key soccer tactics concepts are described in detail and illustrated via animated and actual match video clips apply to any formation. These tactics promote a possession style of play. The information contained herein is not a comprehensive overview. If time permits, I will add additional information. Please review the enclosed information prior to our first training session.
Due to large file sizes of some match video chips, a high-speed Internet connection is recommended. Further, due to limitations in the animation software, please read the full descriptions of the tactic detailed. If you have any questions please feel free to call or email me.
