Static ball mastery drills like these are very important for the development of ball coordination and soccer skills.
Many ball control exercises are the basis for more complex soccer moves and techniques.
Master these and you will master the ball. When you master the ball, you master the game.
All you need for this soccer practice is a square meter on the lawn. You can train them even on the carpet in the living room.
Soccer coaches should incorporate these drills in their soccer training or warm-up time before a soccer game.
