How to Become a Pro Soccer Player

How to Become a Pro Soccer Player

As a young boy growing up, I loved playing and watching the
beautiful game. I loved the passion. The chants and the roars. The excitement. But playing soccer for a living was just a distant dream. At age 12, I was told I was not good
enough. I was rejected from representing my region. I didn’t even make my clubs development squad. There were millions upon millions of
younger kids, all over the world that were better than me. But I still had that thought in my head Nick, imagine… walking out the tunnel to a packed stadium. Imagine scoring a goal and celebrating with thousands of your home fans. The possibility excited me so much that one day, I decided to go for it. My ability was limited and I had no
connections. But what I did have, was desire… and a willingness to work hard. So what did I do next? I started training more. 20 hours a week to be exact. Hours were spent in my garden, or on the field with just my boots and my ball. doing my own training routines and exercises. And the result… I got offered full, athletic scholarships to the USA. I got invited to train with the U/20 national team. and finally… I was offered a contract to play professionally in Europe. What I’ve learnt throughout the years is that you don’t necessarily need fancy academies, expensive camps, or famous coaches to reach your goals in soccer. You just need your boots, a ball and Effective training. With Effective, I’ll show you the best workouts and drills that will help you improve the most so you can reach your goals. Effective Train like a pro.

    Message to everyone here who thinks they're bad:

    When I was 8, I played on a YMCA team for soccer, and I played goalie a lot. I didn't like goalie because I enjoyed running a lot. I was considered the best out of all of the goalie there, but my brother said I was bad. That really made me doubt that I was actually good. At that time, I would pinch the ball out or grab the ball when it was closer to the next. Now I done for the ball and all that other stuff. I practiced other things to like regular defense, attacking, midfielder stuff, and now, I'm getting better. I'm not 13 and my brother now says I'm actually good, not just at goalie, but in general. So what I want you guys to know is that you shouldn't give up, but practice and practice. Trust me, you won't regret it later. It really pays off. This thing I will say it's extremely important, and if you argue about this, things will end up bad later. God really helped me. Now some of you will oppose that thought and day He isn't real. Here is real. Listen to me. He will reveal Himself to you. He loves you. Pray to Him and ask Him to let you see He is real. John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." God helped me get better. He will help you too if you have faith and pray. Never give up, and just go on. You'll be better. You'll see soon enough. God bless you guys. It's never too late to start. You know that? If you feel so, start now, set a goal, and find how you'll accomplish it. Then set another one and do the same. Keep repeating the cycle. Follow your dream. I wish to play for either North America or South Korea. I'm Korean American so I will need to decide which to pick. If anyone wants me to pray for you to become a better player, I will.

    Assuming I'm 18 years old barely started playing football less than 3 years ago, I'm underwight for my age and I'm 5'5. I've grown and developed really quickly without training I've never played on a team and everyone around me was way better than Me just by playing with a ball I got better than most. Assuming I train hard focus go to the gym is there any chance for me im still learning and I learn fast but I need to play with people better than Me to push myself.

  90. Lincoln Zemaitis says:

    you pro yet?

  91. Dean says:

    Most coaches are focused on speed and strength to evaluate players. It goes too fast that sometimes I couldn't remember the complexity of procedures in training sessions. But when they have tough games, they would failed miserably like England players at the world-cups- the loop and hope tactic or the one touch and back pass to the keeper. IMHO, 50% of the quality is in the player's head to build game plans and strategies while playing on the pitch , it gives him confidence to carry on the game. If you think you are a play maker to drive the attacks, to assist goals like Messi or Ronaldo or a bit of both, you will train by yourself after hours, in two years you can play like Messi.
