Timed 4v2 Keep-away

The objective of this attacking soccer drill is to create a pressure situation in which SPEED of soccer play is trained. This soccer drill focuses on speed training.

4 soccer players spread out in a confined space setup by cones try to keep the soccer ball away from two defenders that come into the middle. The defenders try to kick the soccer ball out of the space or steal possession of it as quickly as possible. Once the two defenders steal the ball or kick it out of the space, they run to the back of the line and two new defenders try to do the same thing and beat the previous time. Use a different ball for each new set of defenders, and usually 6 balls works well for the entire soccer drill.
