Ball control in a soccer game!

Ball control is, in a soccer player, one of the most important characteristics and one of the biggest factors of differentiation between players.

Knowing how to be positioned on the field, studying the possibilities of play in a fast and millimetre way, receiving the ball well, passing or dribbling an opponent while maintaining possession of the ball or starting a dangerous play are very important factors in a soccer game.

Each coach, when planning the tactical scheme of his team, has very definite ideas about ball control of his team and the best way to proceed with ball transition.

To help you in this preparation we have created a new video with ball control exercises.
