Field is laid out with 50+ yds width and 15-20 yds of length. The attackers play keep away with three midfielders within the grid versus four defenders. The remaining attackers (seven players) are outside the grid.
Look for quick switches of POA, try to draw defenders, use feints (eyes + ideas, figure it out + fake them out).
midfield three – in possession read off each other, try to find a triangle shape, find pockets between defenders, continually scan field; out of possession – try to take away options, corner ball when possible.
defending midfield four – in possession expand field (4v3), try to use combinations of play to switch; out of possession, communicate marks (1st/2nd defender), look to close of passing windows.
If an outside player loses possession, he switches with the defender.
