7 Action Ideas To Execute Soccer Drills

A vital element in soccer drills is the fact that good communication and playing skills are of utmost importance which provide the basis for developing young players. When they get senior, these players will positively impact the game.

It’s your duty as a coach to make them clear the goals that need to be accomplished after their training on the basic drills has been completed.

In soccer training, majority of the coaches are not able to communicate to their players the fact that it takes a lot more than putting the ball into the goal to develop into a good player.

Let’s chat about some soccer drills which will allow your players to move up the ladder of success in the game in addition to supplementing it with a touch of enthusiasm.

1. Out of all, passing drill is the first and the most important drills. Herein, there are two cones placed down about 10 yards away from one another. Then 5 players are lined up at the back of each cone. One player will start with the ball from one of the two lines and then pass the ball to another player on the opposite line.

2. Once this first player has passed the ball, they would then run about on the outside of the cones. They’ll then head back to that very line to which the ball was formerly passed by them. Continue to do this until all your players get an opportunity to pass the ball at least a few times.

3. In your soccer practice, when you’ve started carrying out this drill, initially allow your players at least two touches each on the ball. As a coach, make your players practice to use first touch for seize the ball and the second one to prepare it for a pass.

4. Keep in mind that it’s vital that the ball stays close to the player’s body following the first touch. This comprises the first few soccer exercises on which the players must have been trained to develop their skill of retaining control of the ball. The second touch will be used to pass the ball to the opposite line.

5. It’s pertinent that you start training the players on kicking the ball with the inside of their foot while they are still in the process of learning to pass the ball. This will help them make a smooth pass to the player in the opposite line.

6. You can now progress to the next step of the drill in which the players are required to use only one touch. As such, it requires the players to pass on the ball to another player right away, the moment he gets the possession of the ball.

So make sure that the players are very fast in moving towards the other row as this drill is incredibly fast paced.

2012 European Championships Groups Preview

The draw for the 2012 European Championships has been made and there have been some very interesting ties thrown up. The tournament takes place next summer and will be co-hosted by Poland and Ukraine. The first time a major football tournament has been hosted by Eastern European countries.

Group A

Is probably the weakest group at the Championships, it contains co-hosts Poland, 2004 Champions Greece, Russia and 1996 finalists Czech Republic. Looking at the group home advantage should place a massive factor in this group with Poland being confident of coming through this group. The next spot should be between Russia and Czech Republic. Greece will do well to escape this group, however if they can replicate the form they showed at Euro 2004 then who knows.

Group B

Is probably the group of death containing some real talent. World Cup finalists Holland, Denmark, a very strong looking Germany, and Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal. This group is very tough to call but one team that look like they are already out before the tournament begins is Denmark. They clearly have the weakest squad of the four teams and if I had a million free bets I wouldn’t put them on the Denmark team.

Group C

Contains reigning European and World Champions Spain who will feel confident of escaping a group containing, 2006 World Champions Italy, Republic of Ireland and Croatia. This group looks a formality with Spain and Italy coming through, however the Irish and Croatia will feel they still have a good chance of causing an upset.

Group D

This group has co-hosts Ukraine who will be battling it out with Sweden, England and former World Champions France. This group is very interesting as England will see themselves as slight favourites to come through as group winners, however Sweden and France are putting England sides under pressure and will fancy their chances of causing an England side without Wayne Rooney some serious trouble.

These groups have proved very interesting but reigning champions will still remain favourites going into the tournament next year. Germany will consider themselves the second best team in the competition and they have the squad to back that up. England will be a good outside tip but without their best player Wayne Rooney may find it difficult to get out of the group. It’s likely we may have a surprise package like we did in 2004, however if was a betting man I would stick with Spain who boost a side full of talent and players that have the experience to go on and win the competition again and be the very first nation to retain the European Championship.

Champions League Grand Finale Countdown

Manchester United and Barcelona will be disputing the crown of Europe this Saturday at the legendary Wembley stadium.

Barcelona faces its third UEFA Champions League final in six years, and the first one without striker Samuel Eto’o, who played a vital role in conquering the title in those two previous occasions by opening the score for the Catalonians. In the 2006 final against Arsenal he scored the equalizer that made it possible for them to come from behind and win the championship. And in the second one disputed in 2009 versus Manchester United he gave his team the lead during a first half that the Red Devils had dominated. With Eto’o gone it is Lionel Messi who is called to make the difference this Saturday at Wembley, when Barcelona will defy Manchester United once again.

The Red Devils already suffered him once in 2009, when Messi scored the second goal in Barcelona’s 2-0 victory over them. In an effort to stop him, Manchester United coach Sir Alex Ferguson is carefully working in his starting 11 for Saturday, and claims to have five or six effective line ups to neutralize Messi and company.

It is known that there are only two ways to neutralize Barcelona: through constant fouls that prevents their game from being fluid, or by keeping the ball away from them. And Man U has key players that can perform both roles effectively.

It is in the midfield where this battle will be fought, as it is from here that Xavi and Iniesta control the rhythm of the game for Barcelona, and involve the rest of their teammates in the process by always being an option for them in case they can’t find who to pass the ball to. Not to forget Busquets’ silent role of recuperating the ball possession from the rival, and the intermittent associations of Messi with them participating in the playmaking.

One of the options that Ferguson is reviewing is whether to align a double pivot with Carrick and Scholes to stop Barcelona’s playmakers or to go sacrifice one of them, most likely Scholes, to give its place to South Korean Park Ji-Sung, who is more of a winger, and could exchange roles with Ryan Giggs on the left side.

From what we saw on Man U’s last games of the season in England, if Ferguson chooses a more offensive scheme the midfield would be composed of Park, Giggs, Carrick, Valencia, with Rooney in between them and Chicharito, who would be the reference in attack.

While Ferguson decides how to confront this final -his third in four seasons- Barcelona’s coach Joseph Guardiola is doubtful about whom the starter left defender will be. He is working on two options: Carles Puyol or Eric Abidal, both recently recovered from their respective injuries.

Despite the two of them being part of the usual starters in the defense along Gerard Pique and Daniel Alves, the risk from then suffering a relapse from their injuries in such a big game is what keeps Guardiola from putting the two of them at the same time. And with Javier Mascherano doing a great defensive job along with Pique, Barcelona’s coach doesn’t even have the need to risk them.

Both teams are still uncertain about their starting eleven, but what there are no doubts about is regarding them being the best squads in Europe at press time, and a good example of that is not only that the two of them reached the Champions League final, but also that both won their respective domestic leagues: Man u the English Premier League and Barcelona Spanish La Liga.

These are the champions.
