Soccer is the world's most popular participant sport. Known internationally as 'football'. The worlds most popular game may also be the most difficult to play successfully. Football players must perform a variety of specialised skills under the game-related pressures of limited time, restricted space, physical fatigue, and determined opponents. Mental skills are constantly tested as players must respond to a continuous flow of changing situations during play. Superior performance ultimately depends on each player's ability to successfully meet these physical and mental challenges. This book was written with that thought in mind, to provide information that will be beneficial to players and coaches striving to achieve that goal.
