For a winger, you need a clear understanding of movements, solid basic skills and quick reactions.
Today let's see how wingers should lay foundation for themselves~
Practice catching short distances and shooting fast
First shot to catch ball straight to side and hit far corner of goal
Catch ball from side of your dominant foot, turning your body slightly in direction of your turn. With receiving leg extended, hips open, and feet apart, use arch to stop ball slightly in direction of your kick.
Note. When catching ball, ankle is tight, but there is a slight backward relief movement so that ball does not stop too far.
Cross after passing to midfield
When receiving ball from one side, move away from original location, step sideways towards incoming ball and make room to receive ball.Close door early.
When receiving a long pass from a midfielder, bend your legs, lower your center of gravity, and use arch of your lead foot to unload ball. This action must be precise, otherwise ball will land easily. Immediately after ball is landed, use outside or inside of foot to push ball away from its original spot, make a few changes of direction and fake moves along sideline, and complete a cross at a certain distance from baseline.
Warm-up. This action can also train body coordination. Pay attention to ball of foot: thigh must be elevated, foot is perpendicular to ground, ankle must not be turned up, and it is best to cut ball from top to bottom when stuffing. When performing movement between obstacles, frequency should be fast, and practice steps and movements under soles of feet.
