|For central midfielders, the key is getting lots of touches on the soccer ball to improve on your ball control, turning ability and passing. The main thing to focus on with ball control is the ability to control the ball out of your feet and get your head up – meaning a good first touch on the ball. And in the midfield it’s about shielding the ball away from the opposition and not rushing things.|
Central midfielders have to be confident on the ball and get used to receiving the ball under pressure in tight spaces. In fact, central midfielders want pressure and defenders to converge on them so they can slip through those killer passes in behind the defense.
