Slow Down Near the Goal

Sergio Slow Down

Essentially “slowing down” means making the easy pass to the open player. It doesn’t mean necessarily slowing down your speed of play, rather it’s letting the ball do the work, and not forcing the play. Keep your mind moving fast and focused but play simple soccer. If there is an open player to pass to then play them the ball. Then, when they get closed down they play the ball back to you.

As a young player one of the difficult things to learn is patience. This means things like letting the ball do the work through one and two touch play. Each time you make a pass the defense changes their position and new things open up at different angles on the field – new spaces to run into, dribble, and pass are created when you move the ball. It might take five or six passes before you can find that one killer pass in behind the defense. There’s no need to force it though.

We are giving you a Sergio Aguero analysis today as we go over how to be calm and composed in front of goal like Aguero!
