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.
