  • I believe that in order to succeed on the field you need to know beforehand who your opponent is and what kind of errors you and your opponent have committed. That way you can move on knowing what you need to work on to win the game. Secondly, knowing your game plan inside and out and being confident in your technique ,I believe comes through practice. Thirdly, it is going to be strength. Strength is third because there is more to football than just strength.
