Incredible indoor soccer skills

Posted on April 22, 2008. Filed under: Video | Tags: , , |

Most of the great forwards and creative mid-fielders started or developed their trade on a smaller field. Players like Ronaldo, Robinho and Ronaldinho all improved their great control and dribble by playing indoor or smaller 5 a-side games. It gives you more touches on the ball simply because there are less players and forces you to have better control in tighter spaces as the play area is much smaller. I feel that young players should spend a lot of time playing indoor in the early stages of their development as they will learn better skills quicker this way. Although it’s important to start playing and training for the 11 a-side outdoor game once the basic passing, controlling and shooting skills are there as players that are too used to the smaller game don’t always do well at the larger one. A good example is Falcao who is one of the best indoor players out there and has won countless tournaments with the Brazilian national team but never really got his outdoor career off the ground even trying with Sao Paulo FC.

Have a look at some of the amazing skills that indoor players can display, the ground moves are incredible to watch.

futsal all the way and just shows practise makes perfect:

Juninho free kicks: fustal x practise = genius

I love futsal, it’s my passion.
This video is sick, I have saved on my computer and look at it almost every day.
I also learned a move from the video. The rainbow that the guy does touching with his knee and then flicking over the defender with the feet. It’s hard to explain, but you can see on it on the video.

Great video!

Although I love outdoor the most, when you watch clips like this one it just blows your mind. Just to learn half of the moves in there would be incredible for me. I think I know which move you mean, nice one! I’ll have to give it a shot. If there’s any hints you’ve got, let me know!
