Goalie And Defensive Teamwork For U10,U11,U12,U14,U16

Real Salt Lake vs FC Dallas 2013

 

 

 

 

 

 

Goalie and defensive teamwork for U10,U11,U12,U14,U16, these MLS matches are a great source of

watching teamwork from the goalie to the back four defensive players. Jimmy Nielsen the Sporting KC

goal keeper puts on an absolute clinic vs. the club from Toronto FC. This game shows why Nielsen is

the MLS leader of career goals against avg. , and why shut outs are not uncommon in Sporting KC

matches. Another great goal keeper to watch is Jeff Attinella of Real Salt Lake, quietly they have

put up some great shut outs and the best points total for the Western Division of the MLS so far in

2013. New York Red Bulls are clicking on all cylinders in the Eastern Division and the goal keeper

Luis Robles is the main reason why the defense is making a move in this hot July weather, putting

this team in the top 3 of battle for the east. The defensive four in front of these keepers are limiting

the quality of many shots, covering up the angles and clearing the ball from danger quickly. One keeper

who had a great game, but his defensive four in front of him let him down would be Toronto FC

Joe Bendik, who kept TFC in the Sporting KC match with many quality saves, but the lack of defensive

marking allowed too many easy chances through. Toronto in this match would be a bad example

for goalie and defensive teamwork for U10,U11,U12,U14,U16 players. [Read more…]

US Men’s soccer team win 3 in a row moving towards WC 2014, with a strong defense and multiple

shut-outs, Team USA is one step closer to Brazil 2014 World Cup. The men’s team just beat Honduras

1-0 with Jozy Altidore tucking one away for the men in blue n white. Tim Howard and the defensive back

four are shutting down these international matches making it very hard to score. Clint Dempsey seems

to be johnny on the spot to put away game winners as he did in the May Costa Rica match, which also

ended 1-0 USA. Spacing and just looking for that bounce was the game plan for team USA during that

snow storm in Denver. Mexico’s match was a huge defensive battle for both clubs ending in an 0-0 draw

and atleast one point for team USA to put towards Brazil 2014 WC qualifications. Even Germany saw

how strong the US can be in a friendly match in early June, fireworks for the US with four goals against the G men. [Read more…]

Team USA Women’s Soccer is off to a great start in the 2012 Olympics. With a 3-0 shut out of

Colombia, the women are going for the gold. Megan Rapinoe is having the tournament of her life

so far. Another goal from Rapinoe, then Abby Wambach, and Carli Lloyd put one in the back of the

net to show the dominance of the USA squad. Hope Solo and the whole US defence seemed to keep

any Colombian attack from even starting. One of the main strengths this team has is the fitness level
