Developing the Functional Technique by Complex Progression
This complex soccer drill focuses on developing the accurate finishes, the passing and kicking technique, the dribbling and the cooperation of the players.
Besides, the various tasks emphasise practising the defensive and offensive parts of the 1v1 situations and improve the implementation of the correct timing of passes and runs.
