While for Portugal, on the other hand, not being able to find creative solutions to slip their way past Iceland’s defensive lines ultimately proved the difference between one and all three points.
County Coach Developers, Jody Caudwell and Darran Bowles, will explore this theme in further detail, examining why it has emerged as one of the key early trends of the Euros and provide practical guidance for equipping your players and teams with the skills to create opportunities to score against compact defences.
With content relating to each of the age-phases – 5-11, 12-16, 17-21 – they will showcase example practices that you can implement in your coaching sessions while also making the connection to the coaching fundamentals and philosophy of the England DNA.
