Netherlands '88 drill I

A training routine inspired by the winning Dutch side from the 1988 UEFA European Championship.

The Netherlands team that triumphed at the 1988 UEFA European Championship is regarded as one of the most technically gifted sides ever to grace the tournament. This drill, aimed at players aged 10 and upwards, is inspired by that team, focusing on improving a player's ability to pass the ball in tight areas and their awareness of team-mates' positions.
