To celebrate the release of adidas’ Nemeziz 19, plus the 2019 Champions League final, we’ve got an awesome challenge to help you improve your close control and develop speed and agility with the ball!

TIP 1: SPEED

When you have space out in front, use the laces part of your foot to take a fast touch. This will make sure you’re travelling at top speed!

TIP 2: AGILITY WITH THE BALL

Try to keep your knees soft and stay over the ball for balance as you turn and weave while you’re on the move. This will help you keep close control of the ball and change direction quickly, as well!

TRAINING GROUND

Now practise this ace drill by watching the video above!

STEP 1

Perform five kick-ups with your right foot in-between the starting gate. Once completed, travel into the grid with the ball using your right foot.

STEP 2

Travel with the ball around the outside of the first disc in front. Turn right and then travel to the first pop-up cone at the opposite end.

STEP 3

Weave in and out of the pop-up cones. Turn around when you get to the last cone and weave back through, turning left at the end.

STEP 4

Travel with the ball around the inside of the disc in front. Turn right and travel through the finish gate to complete the challenge!
