iam a striker and i need.............

I have a similar problem. I also play well in small spaces (like futsal) but dont do well in the outdoor field. Try picking your head up and looking at your options as a center mid. You should have teammates talking and making runs. Also, remember that when you get/have the ball, the other team is a...

losing my form

I am about 5'5" and a fairly aggressive player since I am so small. However, I am easily pushed off of the ball by bigger players. My coach says I should build up my calf muscles by doing stairs and should do squats. Does anybody have schedual for these exercises that I could follow-or any tips...
