How To Improve Soccer Skills At Your Backyard


By Leslie Ball

Many people always wonder how good footballers can do wondrous things on the field. It is not they are extraordinary it is just that they take time to practice when they are alone. Let us look at some of the ways on how to improve soccer skills at home.

For you to become a world star you must start learning some of the techniques of playing football earlier in life when you are still young. There are many skills you need to learn over time to become a world star in the field. However, you can also be a good footballer if you take the time and improve your skills. Remember it takes time, determination, and hard work to learn how to play soccer with skills. Many people have the talent, but it's not only about talent but also about the hard work you put in learning new things.

The first lesson creates twenty minutes and learns how to juggle. You can do this for a period of six days and take a day's rest to allow your ankle to rest. Do not use a full ball because it is sometimes very difficult to control, remove some pressure to make it easy for you to control.

The juggling technique is very simple put a slight touch on the football in the air and control in as it lands on your feet. Be very patient when you realize that you easily lose the ball even before two touches. However, you must put in more effort to a point you can now control the football easily. Mostly when you do not know how to juggle you won't know how to pass, shoot and control at the same time.

It is also important to learn how to control a ball that you kick on the wall. Make sure you are not allowing the ball to bounce twice because it becomes hard to control after the second bounce. It is because when a ball bounces twice it moves away it becomes hard to direct it. Make sure you are also within a proper distance with the wall because when the ball leaves the wall it has much force that you may not be able to control it easily.

Good footballers know that when you dribble you cover a large distance and leave your opponent behind. Dribbling gives you an edge over your opponents. The space where you place the ball is always empty hence you can run and find an opportunity to score easily. You can use a dog that loves playing with soccer balls to try this dribbling technique. Push the ball ahead of it and try and reach for it before the dog gets it. You must be cautious not to heart the dog when you are moving.

You can also learn how to shield. Shielding involves keeping the football away from your opponent using your arms and body. Do not try this if you have not hit the gym and is not fit. It is because when you are unfit your opponent can easily take the ball from you with just a slight body contact.

Lastly, great footballers know that it's not about individual play in the field, but it is about team work For you to be a team player you must learn to give timely and accurate passes. There are good passes that when your team mate gets they just tap and it's a goal. Learn to pass accurately to make your team win easily.
