This video shows an idea that was used by the Argentinian women’s national team of 2001, where the physical coach of the team, Luis Bruno Barrionuevo, introduced a drill that seems to focus on improving the defensive individual footwork, backwards movement, change of direction and more using an remote controlled car.
