Players need to be able to beat their opposition numbers, dribble past them, have the composure and the creativity to do what is necessary to find space and create goal scoring opportunities. Individual skills are key to any player having the ability and confidence to use the ball and play it in a way that benefits the team.
Use the skills drills on Cupello to help build this confidence in your players. Coach them how to hold the ball, dribble past the opposition and play creatively across the pitch. With these capabilities your team will go from strength to strength as they play confidently and learn to take risks.
Spend 5 minutes at the beginning of training sessions to let players practice individual skills like keepy-uppies.
Create sessions that encourage decisions like when to dribble and when to pass.
Use drills that encourage individual skills like 1v1s using feints or inside/outside turns to beat a player.
