If so, you have come to the right article. In this article, I will share with you some tips and tricks to help you play the game better. Plus, there is a special surprise for you at the end of this article. Have a look.
It is an integral part of this sport. At a professional level, players will run around 10 to 13 kilometers per match, which lasts around 90 minutes or more. At your level, you only need to run about 5 to 7 kilometers for 30 minutes and you are good to go. If you are below that number, practice running every day to increase the speed and stamina. You might want to practice on the form of running as well so that you can run more using less energy.
As for speed, practice interval training, which is a quick burst of pace followed by a short walk then a burst of pace again. Keep repeat the process until you feel tired then take a rest and continue. If you have the means, tie a parachute to your body and practice learning like that. If you can run fast against that kind of drag, then you will be uncatchable without it.
Stamina, as in the dictionary, is a physical or mental strength that allows you to continue doing something for a long time. You will be needing this if you intend to play a full match. There are loads of exercise that can help you with it, cardiovascular for example. You only need to do this for only 3 to 4 times a week in order to see the result and feel the difference.
An indispensable part of football, you don’t need to shoot but you will definitely need to know how to pass. Try target practice by painting circles on the wall or set up some actual targets and start passing. You might want to practice 1-2 passing as well by passing to the wall and as the ball bounces off, catch it.
If you are playing in attacking position, this is a must-have skill. There are lots of ways to shoot the ball, ranging from using the inside of the foot to using the front and even the outside of it. Practice for accuracy first then for power. It’s better to practice again and again to perfect one type of shooting than to practice everything at once. People fear that type of players more than anything else.
You will usually have little chance to show this off in real match but it does help you have better control of the ball, which is just what you need during the game. Same as above, don’t practice a wide range of skills, practice a few skills until you can perform them without even thinking about them so that you can pull them off in fast-pace situation on the pitch
