Training / drill recommendations for a novice footballer
Mates, me authentic team France soccer ball and me Nike lightweight boots have arrived.

What are some good training drills that youd recommend a novice footballer like me take up to hone me skills?

I'm fairly fit, was our placekicker in high school 3 years, was a college lettermen (tennis), and have a large yard to work with.

Cheers mate - I'm going to recommend me intramural squad put me at right wing despite being left-foot dominant. I'll be a regular Adam Johnson, innit?

re: Training / drill recommendations for a novice footballer
Also that’s not an authentic or game ball

It’s the glide/practice ball

And it’s a size 4

What are you 8 years old

Join a league. If you are 30+ playing soccer it's a steep learning curve. If you have a wall you can kick towards and have the ball come back, you can practice different ways of trapping the ball. Getting cones and dribbling around them with quick changes of direction can also help.

Good catch, mate - the website was misleading. Figured youd have a laugh at that one

I'll gift it to wee Benjamin next door and upgrade to full size soon

If your schtick is to be some authentically English bloke, why the FFF ball? Seems sac religious.

Dribble. A lot. Don't worry about your ball striking. Focus on using all the surfaces of your foot to move the ball and get comfortable changing directions on the move. Knock the ball off the wall a ton and work both feet equally.

Pass back and forth off wall with both feet’s as others recommended. As well as joining a league also suggested earlier. keepie uppies. And toe taps.
