Tag Lamche, a UEFA A Licence (part 1) coach and a specialist in vision and awareness (perceptual and cognitive skills) shows you how to play ‘’From Build Up to Finish’’, providing numerous practical examples of combination play from the keeper, through defence, midfield and attack to create goal scoring opportunities.
As well as being structured, it is important to present players with a rich variety of options or tactical tools they can explore. In this way you empower players to make their own decisions - individually and collectively - as well as encouraging them to use their own creativity and natural attributes to best apply these methods into practice.
There are detailed chapters to outline the 4 phases of play and additional chapters for Supplementary Technical Training and Set Pieces.
