Messi Juggling Warmups
Long distance juggling skills. Watch Barcelona teammates Lionel Messi and Dani Alves warm up by volleying the ball back and forth to one another. It seems to start out as just passing the ball back and forth as a warm up but then they’re striking the ball back and forth in the air. What long distance juggling does for players is give them incredible confidence with the soccer ball. If you can juggle the ball from forty yards away then it’s easy to juggle the ball away from a defender in the box and score a goal.

Messi and Alves rarely let the soccer ball even bounce on the ground as they control the ball with their chests or their thighs and juggle the ball a few times before volleying the ball back. And who said juggling the soccer ball doesn’t help you in a real game? Need any more proof.

Update: And here’s another video of Messi and Alves doing the same juggling/passing type warm up routine from thirty or forty yards away before their Champions League match versus Paris Saint Germain. Incidentally, it was a Dani Alves volley like pass that led to the Messi’s goal in the game.

And here are some of Messi’s Barcelona teammates showing you how to keep the ball up in the air. Yes, juggling is an important aspect of soccer. If you can keep the ball up in the air you can surely keep control of the ball on the ground.
