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
Set and Go
Set and go is a movement used by a centre forward.
When a centre forward receives a pass with his back to goal and under pressure from a marking defender, he cannot turn and run at goal and he must protect the ball from the defender.
One option is for the forward to make a “set” pass to a supporting team mate and spin to make a run into space behind the marking defender.
Now the forward is facing the opponent’s goal and is free to receive a second pass.
