Mentality to Beat a Defender

The mental side to beating a defender on the soccer field!

I recently did a video asking for video suggestions and this was a popular suggestion. What should your mind set be to beat a defender?

The game is 90 percent mental. Meaning if you believe you can do it because you work hard at your game to improve then you can do it! If you lack confidence, your game will suffer. 


Key Points to Mentally Beating a Defender:

1. Make a Decision! When approaching a defender in the attacking third make a decision to take them on or not. If you decide to take them on, then stick with that choice. Don't doubt your gut feeling. 

2. Believe 100% in your mind you will get by the defender. Don't "hope" to get by or count on luck. You are a good player, with good skills, use them and do your thing!

3. If you lose the ball, so what! Instantly forget about the mistake and hustle back on defense, win the ball back and the crowd will applaud you for your work rate.

What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: 

If you find yourself doubting that you will get by defenders when you go to make your move you are doing it wrong mentally. Believe in it®, in your mind, that you will succeed and more times then not you will be successful! 


Bonus Tip:

Once you get by the defender you only need a foot or two to get a shot, cross or a pass off. Don't think you need to a mile between you and the defender in order to have a successful move. You just need a foot or two of space.
