Defending: ‘Pressing’

For example;

  • if we are losing 2-0 and there are 20 minutes left, we Press (this is describing the ‘state of the game’)
  • if it is a 2 v 1 situation, in favour of the Attackers approaching the defensive third, the Defender will delay Pressing (this prevents ‘over-committing’ until it looks like a pass or shot will be made)
  • if the Attacker has their back to goal, not under control (see picture below)
