If you're marking an enemy, you have to position yourself between him and your own goal. The closer the enemy is to the ball, the tighter you should mark him. Usually, the opponents closest to the ball must be picked up tightly. This creates a packed defense that is hard to penetrate directly. When two defenders are collectively pressuring an enemy, they must approach him so that he cannot go around them. Notice how one defender intentionally challenges Attacker 1 from the left so that his only option is to move right, directly into the second fullback. Forcing the attacker this way is somewhat tricky: the defenders should not be too far apart or he may dribble in between them.
