7 ‘Costly’ Mental Game Mistakes That Block Soccer Players’ Success
Soccer is a fast paced, physical game with no time outs to regroup after mistakes or rest. One mental lapse can lead to a bad pass or missed clearance that could change the outcome of the game. You have to be prepared--mentally and physically--to play at your peak for 90 minutes, and often longer when a game goes into overtime. Your teammates rely
on you and vise versa. Therefore, your level of mental toughness can help you thrive in soccer by boosting confidence, coping with adversity, and performing at your peak, especially under pressure.
