Exercise of the month: Attacking width.
Last month we presented an exercise to improve possession of the ball. This month we outline an exercise to improve attacking width (we are wide in order to be deep), for this we must stress the importance of changes in direction to ensure possession of the ball, and in this way be able to evolve from one area to another and ensure the creation of numerical superiorities which give us the possibility to complete.
We will insist on the use of attacking principles which are manifested either individually in the form of supporting runs, one-twos, the timing of attacks, or which have a collective character such as the speed of the attack, the depth and level of attacking progression or width to be able to complete. In addition we will stress the importance of applying individual and collective defensive principles to help us recover the ball when necessary.
As in the previous month, we will introduce variables that facilitate or hinder the exercise, always going from the most simple to the more complicated, from the easiest to the hardest and taking into account the change of roles (transition from attack to defence) and vice versa, which will enrich the learning and development of the game.
