Soccer Video Transcription: At the higher levels of game play, especially at the pro level, being able to play one on one soccer effectively is an absolute must. Jeremiah is known for his offensive expertise and his speed, but White uses advanced techniques allowing him to exploit his defenders and get a shot on goal. So, listen closely and take notes, and then try applying these techniques to your own game. Knowing all the soccer tricks in the book as a pro soccer player is the norm, but to be a serious offensive force on the field, it is the soccer one on one skills that separate the professionals from the amateurs It's similar to basketball, if I'm going to cut, I can read their body language, and where the feet are positioned, and which direction they're going to go, but also, I've been working on this, if they're breathing. If it's in my mind and I'm thinking about it, if I look at how they’re breathing, I can see if they'll be able to react when I begin to react. So with that inhaling versus exhaling, and where they have their breath and their power based on how their breathing, I know I can push it. But otherwise if I'm playing against a defender that I know that I'm faster than, it doesn't matter I just go, I just push it, I just make him chase me. And if I'm better than the other guy, I'm going to run them to death, I'm just going to punish them, he has to stop me, that's my attitude, you have to stop me. Some teams, you get smart defenders at times, and they know how to neutralize speed if you're just going to run, see have to be smart about when you run and how you run. Even a slower guy, if I push it by me if he’s smart, he can cut me off if he’s smart. If I can combine, if the ball comes into the striker and he flicks it behind, then it's just a foot race. Or the ball goes into the striker, and then he lays it back to the midfielder, then I take off I can catch my guy off guard, and that he has no chance than. But then the team has to be on the same page and be looking for those opportunities to attack.
