This is all about defending in small numbers where it’s common for one or two defenders to find themselves in situations where they are exposed to an overload of attackers. MORE
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.
