Become the world's greatest soccer player (or at least try)
Want to bend it like Beckham or be as majestic on the field as Diego Maradona? Whether you're a beginner or playing at competition level, you can benefit from some of the top secrets soccer stars swear by.
Soccer requires players to work as a team which means constantly talking to each other throughout the match. Communication is a two way street, which means listening to directives from the coach and team mates, and calling out your intentions using simple instructions like asking for the ball when you're clear.
Quick ball play
Everyone wants to be the player of the match, the one that runs the length of the field and wins the game for the team, but ball hogging will increase your risk of losing the ball to your opponents. Quick short burst of ball play with one to two touches before passing will keep your competition on their toes.
Learn from the best
Challenge yourself by pitching your skills against older, more experienced players. Competition level players will impart new exciting game tactics, handy moves and tackle tips.
Practice, practice, practice
Confidence develops with refining your skills, regular attendance soccer training, putting in the hard yards and working on your weak areas, over and over again until you could perform that skill blindfolded if you had to.
