Young footballers love to play, and a lot of inspiration comes from their heroes. The greats of the game all have their own skill sets and signature moves, whether that's Cristiano Ronaldo's chop, Neymar's flick, Lionel Messi's mazy dribbles, Harry Kane's deadly finishing, or Trent Alexander-Arnold's crossing. By focusing on these greats, young players immediately have images in their minds of the task at hand and the skill they are about to execute. They are Inspired By Legends.
As players develop, they need to become truly confident with the ball, and the best way to achieve mastery is by maximising their touches on the ball. So, how can we offer lots of interactions with the ball and learn the key principles of the sport?
