This session will help school your players in defending against the many difficult situations that arise from opponents launching long balls down the pitch. MORE
One Short, One Long
One short, one long is a rule used by teams that use two forwards.
To disrupt defenders, one forward makes a short run towards the ball, and the other forward makes a long run into the space left by the first forward.
This type of movement will create space for one of the forwards to receive a pass.
