I know what you’re thinking. “I’ve tried everything to stop losing in soccer, and it’s not working!” The first step towards finding a solution is to understand why you are losing.
There are two main reasons why people lose in soccer:
1) The referee makes bad calls.
2) They make bad decisions on the field.
You can’t control the referee’s calls, but you can control your decision-making. Here are 6 tips to help you improve your decision-making on the field:
1) Make quick decisions – don’t dwell on the ball for too long or else your opponent will steal it from you. Remember, when playing against a fast player, it is better to pass quickly than dribble slowly.
2) Be aware of your surroundings – always look up before receiving a pass so that you know where the defenders are and can plan accordingly. If there are no defenders nearby then take your time with the ball until they close in on you.
3) Play smart – if there is an open goal, take it! There’s no point in trying to dribble past five players when there’s an open net right behind them waiting for you…just shoot! This will also ensure that your team scores more goals than
If you are a soccer player, either on a team or just playing for fun, then you know how frustrating it is to lose. Whether it be in a championship game or just a friendly practice with your friends, losing always sucks. The worst part about losing is that there is nothing you can do about it.
Or so you think…
You see, while there is nothing you can do to change the outcome of a game, there are indeed things that you can do to help yourself win in the future. There are many factors and skills that go into making a great soccer player and in this article I will highlight 6 tips on how to improve your soccer skills.
1) Play Soccer As Much As Possible: If you want to become good at anything then you need to practice. Practice makes perfect as they say! You need to play as much soccer as possible if you wish to improve your skills. Join an indoor league or get some friends together and start up an outdoor league and try and play at least once a week if not more. It will greatly help improve your touch on the ball as well as your control dribbling, passing, and shooting.
2) Dribble A Soccer Ball: Dribbling a soccer ball is probably the most important
First of all, you need to make sure that the ball is kept away from their strikers. This means that your defensive line needs to stay compact and organized. The best way to do this is to pass the ball around. When you have the ball, they cannot score. Also, as a defender, stand in front of their strikers and try not to let them get behind you.
If you are a midfielder, you need to help out on defense when they start attacking but also push up and help out on offense as well. If you are a striker, do not go back and defend too much because then there will be no one up front trying to score. Play according to what your coach tells you to do.
Another thing you should always keep in mind is “Make the easy pass”. That means if someone is open and wide open, pass it to them instead of trying some trick move or dribbling through three players. This will result in more goals for your team and less for theirs!
Keep these tips in mind when playing soccer and hopefully you won’t lose next time!
This blog is to help you improve your soccer skills and to become a better player. In this blog, I will be telling you six different ways that you can improve your game.
A lot of people love to watch and play soccer. The game is so popular due to the fact that it is dynamic, fast paced, and requires a lot of skill. If you have been watching soccer for some time, then you will know that there are certain moves that are designed to enable players to get around their opponents and run with the ball towards the goal.
Some common moves that professionals use include the step over, drag back, scissors, roulette, and more. The moves do require some practice in order for you to be able to execute them properly. However, it does not stop there since your opponent might also have learned these moves and will try and use them against you. In this case, you need to know how to defend yourself against such moves.
The first thing that you need to do is make sure your legs are shoulder width apart while standing on your toes. This makes it easy for you to move from side to side as well as forward and backward. This stance should be maintained throughout the game regardless of whether you have the ball or not since it helps reduce the likelihood of injuries.
If an opponent tries a move on you such as a scissors or step over, then all you need to do is mirror their movements by also doing a

As a coach, I see players making the same mistakes repeatedly in games. So I’m starting this blog to pass along some of my tips and tricks for better play.
1) Play with your head up. This is by far the most important one. You can’t make good plays if you don’t know where the ball is or where your teammates and opponents are around you. Just like driving a car, you should be scanning the field constantly (your “rearview mirror”) so that you know what’s ahead of you at all times (your “windshield”).
2) Use both feet. A player who can only use one foot has huge liabilities when that foot is covered up, or when it just doesn’t feel right that day. And even if it does feel right, a defender can take away your strong foot easily and force you to use your weak foot. Practice with both feet as much as possible!
3) Learn how to tackle properly. Over 90% of injuries are caused by improper tackling technique, so learning how to tackle correctly is crucial for avoiding injury and gaining an edge on the competition.
