1. Guaranteed possession of ball is key to success, passing back does not mean failure
Many people think that football players (especially strikers) must have a lot of "adventurous" spirit, be able to pass ball and never give it back. In fact, for a seven-man game with such a close distance between midfield and backcourt, losing in midfield is tantamount to dying right in backcourt. Therefore, in small games, possession control is highest priority, and a pass back to backcourt does not mean that attack has failed!
2. Find out more
The player's field of vision needs to be widened. Don't just keep your head down, keep your head high and always pay attention to position of your teammates so you don't miss gaps where your teammates are running. Of course, there is no obvious gap, and there is also possibility of lowering head to protect ball.
3. The best time to get rid of is when you are running
In fact, it is difficult for amateur players to stop ball and then shoot it. Escape on an amateur field is more about changing footwork when catching ball or changing rhythm of breaks during march. If ball stops on you, then best choice is to pass ball, because it is more difficult to get rid of at this time, and it is easy to get into opponent's circle .
4. Interception should be strengthened
In small games, steals should be as destructive as possible. Look for a confrontation with your hands up and you will no longer be able to let your opponent play ball easily. If you are broken, it is a good idea to make a tactical foul.
5. Do not run in response to linebacker
Small games will have more backtracking than larger ones. Because in small games, backcourt is also a key part of starting attack, so sometimes you have to react to backcourt support.
6. Frontcourt players step back more often to catch ball
The vertical roll to catch ball actually opens up space for midfielder and frontcourt, and also provides a point of contact for backcourt. try to go around ball from backcourt. Opponent's midfield barrier.
7. The winger must return to defense deep
It is not enough to rely only on full-backs for flank defense (because it is difficult for a centre-back and midfielder to replace and there is too much space in center). diagonally behind cornerback, most reasonable defense. This is a cornerback, so cornerback must retreat deeper when defending so he can be ready to fill cornerback's gap at a moment's notice.
