In amateur courts, everyone usually plays in 8-a-side or 9-a-side games. There are relatively few 11-a-side games. Therefore, the two most important positions in the amateur arena are the back midfielder and goalkeeper. The quality of the goalkeeper directly determines the outcome of the game. If an amateur team has a strong midfielder and a full-time goalkeeper, then this team must not be bad. After all, these two positions can be used The lower limit of an amateur team is higher.
Because amateur games are mostly eight-a-side and nine-a-side, this type of game is prone to big scores. Most teams will arrange 3 guards and a midfielder, and the rest of the players are placed on the offensive line. This will cause the team's defense to be empty, and once it is counterattacked, it is easy to form a single move. At this time, the importance of the midfielder is revealed. When the team aggressively presses the offense, the two full-backs generally play higher, so only one midfielder and one central defender stay in the center and back to defend, as the amateur team's midfielder. , You don’t need to have a strong offensive ability, what you need is a good sense of position and defense.
On an amateur court, the midfielder must always stand in its own position. If the midfielder loses its position, the opponent can comfortably control the ball in the midfield and easily pass the ball to the dangerous area. The central defender has to face 2-3 offensive players alone, which is why most teams lose the ball. And if the midfielder does not lose position, he can move forward to force the opponent to pass or delay the opponent's attacking rhythm, so that his teammates have enough time to return to defense. A good midfielder can not only disrupt the opponent’s attacking rhythm, but also timely steals. When the opponent advances the attack, the midfielder steals the ball from the opponent’s offensive player’s feet to form an effective quick counterattack. His offense is transformed into his own offensive opportunity. Such a goal is the most scoring method we have seen on an amateur court.
In addition to the defensive midfielder, there is another position on the amateur court as the goalkeeper. Some amateur teams do not even have a full-time goalkeeper. Several teams share the same goalkeeper. If you choose to become the goalkeeper of an amateur team , Then you will save a large amount of venue fees and the cost of entertainment after the game. There are few goalkeepers on the amateur field, and good goalkeepers are even rarer. There has been a saying in the football circle that a good goalkeeper is worth the top half of the team, which is enough to prove that you have a good goalkeeper. How important it is. When the goalkeeper stretches his body and leaps up to take off the ball steadily, this will not only boost the morale of his own players, but also undermine the confidence of the opposing players. After all, when you pass all the defensive players, it is extremely tricky. After his shot is saved by the goalkeeper, you can easily lose confidence in the shot.
The quality of the two positions of defensive midfielder and goalkeeper directly determines the quality of the amateur team. One is the team's first line of defense and the other is the team's last line of defense. On the amateur court, only a good defense is needed. , To talk about offense.
