The practice starts when the first player in “group 1” passes to the first player in “group 2” and follows his pass to pressure the ball. The player in “group 2” has only “one touch” to control the ball then he must shoot at goal. It is then repeated from the other side of the goal. Play for 3 minutes then swap roles. Defenders become strikers, striker become defenders.
