   One of the key elements of improving as a football player is constantly analyzing   the game, in order to detect your areas for improvement, and emphasize your   training on those areas.

   Video analysis is also essential to provide evidence of all the improvements you have made as a player. Due to this, some training sessions will be recorded to detect the stronger and weaker points of the players game.
