Improve your team’s defense!

During a soccer game, moments of defense are crucial to the overall success of the entire team. In the defensive process, more players are involved, and even the goalkeeper plays a vital role in avoiding goals, occupying spaces, and closing pass lines.

The defensive process of a team has well-defined objectives, such as preventing the opposing team from advancing on the field of play by reaching the penalty area, avoiding shots, and regaining and maintaining possession of the ball as quickly as possible.

It is not for nothing that it is said that a team starts to build from the back. A cohesive and defensive solid sector is essential for the team’s overall performance. So that we can help coaches build the defensive sector of their teams, we prepared a new video focused solely on defending exercises.
