Increase your team’s defensive strength!

The defensive sector of a soccer team is very important for the overall performance of the team. For the defensive sector, it is important not only to defend well, avoiding totally, and without fouls, all the onslaughts of the opposing team, but it is also extremely important to start the team’s offensive process.

The right timing, knowing when and how to act are important characteristics for all players, especially defensive players.

To help you create a better defensive strategy for your team and to equip your players with the desired defense skills, we have prepared a new video with defense exercises.
