There are many different strategies and philosophies in soccer to reach success. A playing philosophy, which includes almost every top team’s repertory, is an effective and fast vertical play! Thereby, two basic situations exist, where a vertical play into the depth could be of great success. For one, it always offers the occasion if gaps in the opposing defensive compound emerge. Especially teams like FC Bayern Munich and Real Madrid understand these situations and know how to make use of them very quickly. For the other, a vertical play is of high advantage if a counterattack is possible after gaining possession of the ball. Usually, the opponent is unorganized. This results in a short timeframe, in which it is possible to quickly attack into the direction of the opposing goal in order to create goal-scoring chances.

In this practical concept, I want to reveal ideas on how the vertical play can be variably and competitive-like be mediated in the training. Therefore, you will first find basic tactical principles (in own ball possession, but also in the transition-play), as well as basic skills for a successfully implemented vertical play. Following this, you will find concrete coaching tips and the explanation of certain elements to control a practical training routine. Along with this go ideas as a varied size of the field and provocation rules which contribute to the natural provocation of a vertical play. Conclusively, over 20 exercises and training drills are presented.



Soccer tactics vertical play


In order to offer a player in a closed position the opportunity to safely forward the ball, other players need to consider their staggered position to each other. Players shall position so that they are able to immediately offer when being over played – the “Vertical – Deposit – Principle”.

Example: In the lower illustration, #5 is in ball possession. #8 is positioned between #3, #4, #8 and #10 and ready to receive a ball. #6 is situated staggered to him and is able to drop behind #8with the vertical pass to serve as an additional passing option. However, from an open position, he is able to specifically play into the depth (A and B).



Soccer drill vertical passing

Organization: A starts an initial dribbling. B releases into the back of the dummy into a half open position and is passed to. B forwards with his second touch to C. C performs an one-two combination with D, which D receives into the gap between both dummies located on the right side.

Position Changes: A changes his position to B. B to C, C to D and D dribbles back to the starting point. The next combination is performed over the other side.

Coaching Points: With the dribbling, the releasing movement of B is triggered. B possibly plays with two touches; all other players possibly pass one touch. The last pass is specifically played into the gap between both dummies.




Organization: 4 lines are drawn between penalty box and base line. The last line equals the offside-line. It is played 8 v 8 and the coach introduces new balls. One point is scored for each line the attacking team crosses. A goal counts three additional points. The play is over after the ball is lost. Both teams attack 10 times. Which team scores the most?

Coaching Points: All elements of the vertical play.

Variation: It is played with transitional situations. The coach serves as aim for the team gaining ball possession. Each line overplayed also scores one point. The pass to the coach counts threefold.
