What's the best thing to eat before a game? Before a game you want carbohydates(excuse the spelling) and minerals.Carbohydrates are a source of energy.One of the highest sources of carbrohydates is Pastas.Pastas store carbohydrates in you stomach for about 3 hours.In wich you could use for a soccer game.Gatorade would also be good but I'mn ot a 100% on that one.
You've probaly heard of the cross-over from basketball but Soccer Maniac's Site has kind of "developed" a soccer cross-over.Your going to have the ball in your left foot.Then your going to push itover to your right foot fake right with your shoulders, then sprint your to your left.
Passing is an essential part of soccer.You want to hit it sideways in the mid-center of your foot (shown in blue) as shown in the pic. First like shooting, put the foot you are not hitting the ball with beside the ball.Then follow through by hitting with the side of your foot in the center like in the pic.
Grip the ball on the sides makeing a W shape.Take a couple a quick steps and take the ball behind your neck then while dragging your foot throw.
