A series of 1v1 60-second coaching drills from Discount Football Kits
Our official Nike retail partners, Discount Football Kits have created a series of quick 60-second training videos for coaches.
This series focuses on 1-v-1 drills that incorporate a range of skill-based attacking and defending scenarios for players to improve their awareness, confidence and ability.
Drill 12 - Opposing Ends
In this particular drill, both players start on either end of the pitch. The ball is played in for one player to take a free shot on goal. Immediately after doing so, another ball is played to the opposing player who is then tasked with scoring in the other goal through a 1-v-1. This drill tests connection, quick thinking and 1-v-1 skills. Keep posted for future instalments!
