Soccer Mentality – Mental Tip To Play Great In Any Soccer Match

Soccer Mentality – Mental Tip To Play Great In Any Soccer Match


Hello, Everyone. Today I want to go over something that is
often overlooked by most players. And that is, the mental side of football. Many players concentrate solely on the physical
aspect on the game. And although that is important, getting your
mental game under control is equally essential. It sometimes can be the difference between
a player like Ronaldo and Messi to a player that is toiling in the lower leagues. The talent is there, but there head isn�t
in the right place. I�ve applied this trick before some matches,
and I can�t remember a time where I�ve had a poor game after having done it. So here it is. Between an hour and two hours before your
match, I want you to visualize yourself playing really, really well. Close your eyes if you must. And be extremely
vivid and detailed with it. Go over situations that you would find yourself
in during a match. Visualize yourself beating someone one on
one, playing a great ball through the defense, making that perfect tackle and especially
scoring that all important goal. This only works if you really concentrate
and trust in the process. This also isn�t a guarantee, but it has
helped me every time I’ve tried it. I can tell you that I used this method on
the bus ride to a very important match in college. It was our conference championship, and we
were playing the best team in the nation. I visualized myself playing extremely well.
I went on to have one of the best games I�ve ever had. I ended up scoring a goal to tie up the game,
I even beat someone one on one exactly how I envisioned it.
The result of having done this shocked me at the time. I did a bit more research and found out there
had been research done on this topic. If you want info on the actual info, I would
be happy to share it, but for the sake of the length of this video, I�m going to leave
it out. If you leave me a comment asking for it, I
will gladly message you and tell you. Ok everyone, I implore you to give this a
try. Let me know your results in the comments. Also be sure to subscribe to SimplySoccer

  9. I can play good as a I know myself.But I think too much.For example:I played well today and scored a goal but I started thinking that if any other was in the position where I was,he would have scored too.And when I play well,even then I start thinking that anyone can do well,I am not a special piece.And suddenly my mind become heavy to think football.Give me a solution,please.

  10. I play for Barnsley Academy and I'm in a bit of a bad spell at the moment when I think of doing things like tackling, shooting, passing and all that stuff I completely forget about it. With the visualising like you talked about in this video will this overcome all these things I'm struggling on?

  11. Its an awesome video but can you post a video of how to cope up with opponents during the match how to play mind games with them….

  12. hey could you give me the study link,im playing good at practice but i just get nervous on big games

  13. I am 13 years old now,but i was using this technique since i was 8/9 and i remember when we had a game about 6 months ago i was imaging myself doing that killer through ball and dribbling everyone in the middle (i am CAM/LW) but that game i played as a CAM and we were losing 1-0 in the first half.When we got to the locker room (it was cold outside i was wearing white sweatshirt under a jersey and gloves)i was just sitting there and half of the time i was imaging that it was so warm and not cold and the other half of the time i was imaging that through ball again.So right after the second half started i had a great tackle i beat 1 player at the middle and i sent that exactly the same through ball i was imaging,but our striker shoot the ball and the GK from the other team had a wonderful save . The whole game i had amazing dribbles and passes with great accuracy and vision. It was 85+ minute and i sent that through ball again and our striker managed to score (1-1).I like mainly to focus on my mental side of the game because i have an amazing fitness and i am fast so i just like to watch Guardiola or Cruijff explaining the false 9,diamond formation and other tactics and i love to analyze players like Verratti,Messi,Aimar,Baggio,Cruijff,Busquets,Xavi,Kroos,Iniesta and Thiago A. and sometimes Vidal .
