These videos are not intended to necessarily be the exercises you use with your players. They are merely tutorials for coaches to learn these concepts. Sam Snow is the US Youth Soccer Director of Coaching and he paints a picture of pressure and cover defending. In the second video the players look like they have forgotten how to force a player one direction in order to make them predictable and into your cover defender. I know that you are supposed to stick to your topic, but since you have learned this already in the first video, a quick reminder wouldn’t hurt your players as the concept is like algebra in that it needs the earlier building blocks (basic math).
