Football, or soccer, is a game that is played all over the world. Soccer may look like a hard game, but it is not really that challenging to play. The only thing you really need in order to be successful in soccer is shooting, passing, and defending, because that is what soccer is mostly about. But if you really want to be successful in soccer you should do more things than that, for example, train for skills, long passes, and high level defending. Therefore when you’re in a game your skills might help you create space to pass or take your shots. When I asked Hassen Hassen (a soccer player for Roosevelt) what was one piece of advice your coach gave you that you really liked, “My coach told me to always watch the ball, your teammates and opponents.” You really need to know what is going on in a soccer game, so that you can quickly adjust to the game. Also when I asked Farah (a soccer player for Roosevelt) what is something that a person new to soccer can do as their first step, he replied with, “I think they should do lots of running as their first step because soccer is all about running.”  So, if you want to be successful in soccer do lots of running and a lots of training, so that later on the running and the training can help you in a game.
