STRATEGY
HEADLAND EXERCISE CODE
STRATEGY Double crossover in midfield. ESO10

Following the diagram, we execute a wing attack in zone of creation between 3 players . Players thus perform 3 movements in order to pass the ball to the forward zone (if free) or to the back zone (if the forward zone is not free). If the most advanced player is not accompanied by his marker when he starts his move, then we pass the ball to him.
