This video helps you understand the importance of movement and being in the right angle to receive a pass, improve your awareness of teammates and opposition and make the right decisions at the right time - when to receive and when to pass.
1 team is attacking and 1 team is defending. If you score on the goal you keep possessions and attack again. If the defending team wins the ball and successfully dribbles through 1 of the 2 gates, they now become the attacking team.
Great fun for youth soccer players. 1v1 & 2v2 games.
