A one-two is a passing movement used by two players in order to go beyond or between defenders.

To complete a one-two:

1. Player 1 runs forward with the ball but encounters a defender in his way, so he passes to player 2 and then continues his run past the defender.

2. Player 2 makes a first-time pass into the path of player 1’s run.

3. Player 1 collects the pass beyond the defender and in space.
