1-2-2 “Foosball” Forecheck in Action

Here is a really good example of the 1-2-2 Foosball Forecheck in action.

Key points:

    1. F1 pressures from the outside and tries to force opposing D to switch sides.
    2. F2 and F3 move across like they are on a foosball bar.
    3. D1 and D2 move across like they are on a foosball bar.
    4. Strong side D holds the line but doesn’t pinch.
    5. Weak side D and weak side F move back slightly into a strong defensive position.
