Individual Defending Tactics Italian Style
This Teaching Method has been Developed in the Youth and Academies of the Italian Serie ‘A'

Marking, tackling, intercepting/anticipating, positioning and defending the goal are fundamental elements in the modern game of football.

The Italian Style coaches present more than 40 technical exercises and game situations for the physical and mental development of young soccer players.

The exercises focus on the defensive phase, with the primary objective to develop the tactical awareness and abilities of the defenders, who are more and more scarce in the modern game of soccer.

These exercises are based on the training methodology used at Italian Serie ‘A’ professional clubs to develop their academy players to highly skilled and tactical astute level.

The organization of the work is divided in two macro sections:

Improvement of the fundamentals of individual tactical abilities

  1. Marking/positioning
  2. Defending the goal
  3. Tackling
  4. Anticipation/Intercepting

Development of Coordination Abilities using 1v1 Sistuations

  1. Balance
  2. Differentiation and rhythmisation skills
  3. Motor reaction
  4. Motor combination

5 of 5 Italians do it best June 10, 2011
By: Branko from Malta  
For quite some time I was searching different football filosophies, and my concluson is that when it comes to defending, Italians do it best. This DVD offers very good examples on how to develop individual defensive skills, and the one I like the most is MARKING. In today's game all the game situations are decided in 1v1 situations, and the team that wins most of this situations will definetly be the winning side.
Highly recomended
