The USMNT has gone through many trials and tribulations these last couple of years. From missing out on the 2018 World Cup to getting dominated by Canada, the USA have not looked great. Over the last couple of months this has changed though. Prospect after prospect, goal after goal, the USA has developed so many players in such a short amount of time that it's hard to keep track. The Next generation of US talent looks phenomenal, and if they can reach their potential we have a team that can compete with the rest of the world. Cheers to a new era!

Highlights on social media, scoreline, parent sideline, prizes for individual stats, the opponent style of play, time left on clock etc... all force you to make a decision of how to play during the match.
The correct decision, by far, is the one that retains possession. Here are examples of risky decisions...
The most important thing every player should understand is, in general:
That is the process to the top.

The first touch is arguably the most important skill in soccer. Without a good one, you won’t ever have the opportunities to use your other skills because a DEFENDER will have already closed in. Unfortunately, the first touch is also one of the most difficult skills to learn — it makes the difference between good players and great ones.
Be Aware of Your Teammates. No matter how you plan to control the ball, you need to know where you want to put it. The point of a good first touch is putting the ball in space and getting it out of your feet so you can deliver a crisp pass or take a clean shot. So in the moment before the ball comes to you, take a peek around. It’s as simple as putting the ball where a defender is not. And as your touch improves, your confidence will, too, and you will be able to look up sooner.
Get the Ball Under Control. Once the ball reaches you, you have several options. Take the ball with: Cushion the ball with the inside or outside of either foot, thigh, chest, head or any part of your body but hands. Track the ball in movement, put your body behind it, and don’t remain stiff. The same way your hands move back to soften a catch, cushion the ball with whichever part of your body you are using. Ideally, you should be on your toes, knees bent and arms out for balance.
Bring the ball down! The first thing you want to do is get the ball on the ground if it isn’t there already — that’s where it is easiest to handle. Doing that requires a soft touch and a generally downward motion of your body. With your foot, almost sweep the ball to the ground when it comes to you. With your thighs or chest, the goal is to provide a cushion for the ball to land on before letting it drop in front of you. You can control the direction of the touch by turning your hips or your shoulders.
Once you have the ball in your possession, you need to be looking around to either run with it, pass, or shoot — so keep your head up. Then, with a tap from the outside of your foot or your instep, push it a couple of feet in front of you to give your kick some room or starting your dribbling. From there, its up to your creativity. The quicker and more natural your first touch becomes, the more time it will give you to plan your next move. The best players always seem to have time and space on the ball because of the quality of their first touch.
Practice makes perfect! All you need for the easiest first-touch drill is a wall and any kind of ball (even a tennis ball works). Throw or kick the ball at the wall from a variety of angles and bring it under control as it bounces back — left foot, right foot, thighs, chest, even shoulders and head. There really is no secret to it. It may sound simple, but it’s the best way to develop those instincts alone. If you have the luxury of practicing with someone else, the drill doesn’t change much. Your teammate takes the place of the wall and have fun with the ball.

Tips for playing football in the rain - in today's video JayMike takes a look at some decent tips for if you're playing football in the rain. A lot of football players would say that playing football in the rain is the best weather to play and there's no doubt that it's a different experience compared to playing in dry weather conditions. In today's video you'll hear more about how you can think about your playing style on the football pitch to adjust for the fact that it's wet and slippery out there - and also, JayMike will take a look at how you can get the right football gear to play in the rain. That includes getting a pair of SG football boots - or even going with the boss version, the Nike Anti-Clog technology that prevents mud from sticking to your football boots. As football pitches are often wet, soft and muddy in the rain, you need some extra traction, and football boots with SG studs can give you that as the SG boots feature longer and fewer studs, giving you a better and firmer grip and traction in the ground despite it being soft and muddy. So get yourself some good football boots with SG studs, get some proper shin pads to protect yourself and remember to dry your football boots properly when you're done playing in the rain to make sure they don't fall apart early.
