What sets Spain’s possession football aside from the rest is their cutting edge in the final third.
Even teams that get 10 men behind the ball are not safe – La Roja’s precision passers will find a way through any defensive line. The final ball is ruthless.
No matter what player is in possession, they have the intelligence and ability to pick the right pass. It's a striker's dream.
So, how do Spain step their passing up a gear in the opposition’s half? Technical skills coach Alfred Galustian, co-founder of Coerver Coaching, examined the world and European champions’ style of play and devised a drill to help you play the killer pass.
The session in this video will force your team to create space for the final ball – then it’s up to you to thread it through.
The Stoke City Academy demonstrated the drills.
