I think that the best way to be sucessful in a game is to eat foods rich in carbohydrates and to visualize the pass, the shot and the goal before it happens.

Juggle a lot! I learned to juggle in the hundreds without any struggle and even can get thousands. It improves your first touch a lot. If you are frustrated juggling, start out by counting in your head 1, 2, 1, 2, etc. and keep repeating the pattern. This will help you concentrate on the ball. Eventually you will see your juggling scores become higher and higher. I inveneted it myself, and I'm telling you it really works. Once you have a great first touch the possibilities to how good you can get, skillfully that is, are virtually endless!

I believe that the best training you can do for a soccer season is a series of sprints. If you have access to a track this can be accomplished easier. You do it like a mini ladder. First, sprint a 400, then jog 400, sprint 300, jog 300, sprint 200, jog 200, finally sprint 100 and jog 100. This will get some endurance training and still get the kick you need to play soccer. Don't forget to warm up and cool down! This goes great with weight training too.

What I do before a big game is get a good nights sleep, get up pretty early so you're awake, eat breakfast with eggs, for lunch eat pasta for the carbohydrates, and drink no milk becuase of cramping.
