What’s covered in English Professional League Zonal Defending
English Professional League Zonal Defending features 16 videos detailing how to train your entire team to play a zonal defense in a progressive manner. It starts with 1v1 drills before gradually adding more players and positions until you have an 11v11 training session for the entire team.
This video series is broken up into four parts, which focus on different aspects of zonal defending:
Defending 1v1 to Back Four
Williams begins the session with a 1v1 warm-up, which teaches players how to close the distance and to engage opposition players in a way that keeps them guessing which way to take the ball. It also teaches defenders to predict what attackers are going to do based on their first touch. Drills are progressed to a 2v2 then a 3v3 and finally a 4v4 across the width of the pitch.
During this section, Williams explains the roles and responsibilities of the back four in a zonal defense and the key principles of pressure, cover and balance.
Back Four and Midfielders
The session then advances to include midfielders. Williams explains how the two lines work together when in defense to force opposition players into wide positions and away from the box. A number of drills are provided to solidify the understanding between the back four and midfield so they know what to do in the event that defenders are pulled out of position by opposition attacks.
Defending as a Team
For zonal defenses to work effectively the whole team has to contribute – this includes forwards. This part of the session shows you how to add forwards to zonal defensive training and their importance in defending as a team. Williams sets up an 8v8 game to demonstrate and train zonal defense, with the game played in three zones and includes overload situations and adjustments should there be a breakdown or loss of shape.
Systems of Play and Tactical Awareness
The final part of the session covers the options you have for defending with high or low pressure. This includes the specific features of playing a zonal defense in a 4-4-2 or a 4-3-3, as well as the factors to consider when playing teams using these formations. Finally, Williams covers the options for defending against corner kicks and free kicks, where teams without proper training can be exposed.
