Get ideas for your defensive philosophy from the analysis and let us talk about your suggestions in the comment columns.
Stay on the ball and let yourself be inspired. In the 6-0 defence with offensive half defenders we would like to welcome the opponent's back in the centre. Our half defenders always get help as soon as their opponent moves into the centre. There, a large inner block awaits the opponent, who can rely on his block qualities and the agreement with his goalkeeper in a tight space. In the Dutch team the 2, the half right defender, is more defensive and we will see the 5, the half left defender more offensive. In the first clips, we want to convince ourselves of the importance of the block game and the agreement with the goalkeeper.
Throws that come centrally from 9m or further back are solved with a double block. As soon as the half-defense player has reached her goal, in which the back space player moves to the center, she lets herself fall back and the wrong throw decision against the numerical superiority is accepted. Here we can see the support of the central defender with a placed block for the 5 defender. A central defender steps out offensively in cross moves, we will learn more about this later in detail.
While her partner defends the circle and helps the 5. After many offensive actions both find together again in the center. Due to their attacks the Norwegians are now in the time game and have to rebuild themselves. The pressure of the 5 defender increases more and more until at the end the throw in the center against the double-block takes place again. In this scene, we can see how the half-defenders repeatedly disturb the CB player by short attacks of the pass routes from the blind side during the game build-up. In this way, the game is once again concentrated in the centre, and with the help of the 2 defender, the following play to the pivot can also be taken. If the opponent is in the time game, the pressure of the half-defender increases and they step out even more offensively. This means that there is again only the way to the centre for the back players, where the block is already waiting for them. The time game is not yet over and the pressure remains, thus provoking the TRF.
Should now be tried to push the half defenders backwards by a wide pivot and a transition from the wing. Do they still come out offensively against the ball and still want to force the back players in the centre to decide. It remains to be said that the goal of forcing the back area in the centre to make a decision through the offensive half-defenders is successful. But how do we solve the way against the hand or outside from the halfbacks. The contact and the accompanying from the offensive position is crucial.
The far defender will not block the space and sink to the wing player. This creates a situation in which the wing player does not get any space for his throw and we accept the breakthrough of the half attacker with the throw from a wide situation and the resulting bad angle on the goal. Let us watch these situations from the dutch team. In this scene we can clearly see the two defaults. The half-defender steps out offensively and makes direct contact as soon as the half back moves outwards. In the same move, the far defender sinks back and thus gives the space for the halfback, but not for the pass to the wing. Here we can see the implementation especially well. Because of the many good cross moves and the coming out of the inside block, the 2 defender had to help far in the center and defend the pivot. Thus, he does not get into the necessary offensive position against the half back. The movement of the far right defender and confidence in the strength of the goalkeeper we can still see well.
Now we again do not reach the offensive position due to the fastbreak and the speed advantage of the attack. The wing player lets himself fall anyway and because of the size advantage of the defense, the only thing left for the attack is the heavy throw over the wrong leg. In the final scene we see all the defensive guidelines. The attack of the half-defense player far from the ball, the offensive contact against the half-attacker, the sinking of the outside player, even if it allows the breakthrough, the renewed attack from the blindside and the throw over the compact inner block of 9m. If the far defender does not succeed in shortening the pass to the wing player or the angle sufficiently, the half back has reached his goal and created the free throw from the wing. Now we would like to look at the solution against the crossing of CB and RB. As soon as the offensive half-defender notices this, she sinks back to the centre. Because the crossing is defended by the inside block player, first with an assignment against CB and then to RB.
