This 1v1 soccer drillĀ is great to try with your friends in which you both have the opportunity to take on attacking and defending roles in this opposed 1v1 soccer drill. You will have two attempts at 1v1.

  1. Receive the pass off the defender. Can you get out of the rectangle to the right or left.
    Main coaching point here…fake before you receive!!! Best players do much of the work before the ball arrives, unbalance the defender with a movement so you can explode away with your first touch.
  2. Second 1v1 this time dribbling towards the defender, if you can get past the defender and over the line you get to shoot on goal!

Players who dominate 1v1 change games and stand out to scouts and coaches…practice your skills and practice trying them on defenders!!!!!
