blocking shots

Hey, does anyone have any tips on how to effectively block shots and crosses from attackers? I play defence, usually center, but I prefer the wings, and I have a hard time blocking quick shots and crosses into the box. I rarely get beat by attackers and when I do I recover really fast, but my proble...

Try to keep him running, give him a bit of room to run but not too much, and try to force him off to the side. I am not too great at blocking passes, but I rarely get beat by an attacker on the run, so my main goal would be to try to force him off and let him run rather than pass. He is still going ...

Help With Juggling

I was wondering how long should I be practicing juggling a day if I want to see results in a month or two. It has always been something that I wanted to work on, and over the past two weeks or so I've been doing a little bit, around 20 minutes a day when I take a break from studying. I'm hoping to b...

If you time yourself while doing laps you can keep up a better pace. I try to set up my laps at a 15 second time limit and then I know if I have to speed up a bit or slow down to maintain speed.

I went through a similar stage when I was about 13. I couldn't run through anyone, messed up easy shots, and couldn't find my place in the game. I had a really successful season the year before, and then the next year the results brought me down mentally. Really, it was a confidence issue. On my roa...

I'm right footed, but I use my left whenever I need to do something quick. I remember one year I acutally scored more with my left than right. However, on spot kicks I prefer using my right. I can kick like Roberto Carlos with my left tho :P just that its less powerful and not as deadly.

Running to Burn Fat

If I want to burn fat by running, how hard, long, and frequent do I need to run to get the best results. Right now, I can run about 2 miles in about 12 minutes, but I get really tired. I've been able to do a 30 min run at a much slower pace, without too much trouble. Also, should I mix it up a bit w...

Do you take any breaks during the run? How fast should I go 80% speed? 50% speed? (100% = sprint)

World Cup Theme Song

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I was wondering if anyone knows the song that is played after every match, right after it ends.

How did the ball make contact with your eye? Or is just a hit in the face enough?

I get allergies, but really the only effect I get is breating constrictions, which seem to come when ever I take a break, but when I get back in to the game, my concentration makes me forget about it and I play fine, the same thing happens when I'm sick too :? However, I don't take anything, so I ju...

If you think soccer is what you want to focus on soccer for life, then go premier, but if you want to play soccer for fun and still want a challenge, choose high school, because it gives you something to add to your resume and scholarships.

Try not to worry about missing, just try to get the shot in. If you want to stay calm, try not to be under pressure by giving yourself more time. Don't take too long with the ball or a defender will be on you right away. Proper technique also helps.

I play volleyball really funny ...
