Another good session today, in terms of quality training exercises. I felt at times I struggled a bit, but with my mental approach I felt I was able to bounce right back if I made a mistake. Today’s emphasis was on deep service/back post service. Another portion of the session’s emphasis was on distribution as well, mainly long balls. Moreover, a HUGE emphasis was put on traffic in and around the goalkeeper on services. This is a part of my game that I struggle with I think, but I think I trained this well I thought. A huge portion of this training is mental, and overcoming whatever mental block you may have. Because when you call “keeper” the game often becomes blurry for field players. However, for the goalkeeper it is in that moment that the game must be crystal clear for you as you deal with that service because one mistake could be fatal and cost your team the game. We play a brutal position, I know.
