Actually just get in better shape. Pros run about 5-8 miles a game and about 20% is pure sprinting, so just work on fitness, if you were absolutely fit then you could run the whole game and sprint, and not needing to walk around as much, walking is still important though to let you regain your breat...

Very true, you better be amazing, a lot of players at that level have national team experience, or regional ODP, as well as being the best players in their r...

Time management

Work on touch, it is very important that you keep developing your ball control/ first touch if you want to go to the next level.

Also make sure you stick to your fitness.

This is one of the better routines I have seen, but they are right on certain aspects especially icy, too much plyometric training + weight training, you should limit that to 3 times a week and aerobic runs should be 4-5 times a week.

Fitness is very important along with knowing where your first touch should be and having the skill to put it there and knowing your options before you get the ball.

That is very wise of you. Some people become so envious they distort reality. All I can say is good show chap! I don't think anyone was envious, his video doesn't really show him doing anything special. There is no point arguing over the video I can only laugh and shake my head at those who think i...
