Soccer Tactics: Three main Reasons why Germany beat France yesterday.

Soccer Tactics:

What are the 3 main reasons that the German National Soccer Team beat France 2:1 yesterday? Both teams made a great match, good technique, excellent fitness and booth teams wanted to win the match.

The three main Reasons for that victory of the German team:

  1. The German Team was better in 1 v 1 – situations (defense).
  2. Very quick transition from defense to offense.
  3. Main reason: Perfect ball winning strategie (channeling, midfield pressing, double-teaming).

In his online seminars Ralf Peter presents all the details about the German tactics winning the ball in midfield, about zonal defending, deferent system of play, pressing, about channeling and more.

Go to Seminars about Pressing:

Zonal Defending in Soccer – Midfield Pressing – Pressing low – Pressing high

What are the topics of the series “Pressing in Soccer – How to Pratice and Master it.”?

  1. The first seminar will focus on variations in pressing and analyze strategies to win the ball.
  2. In the second and third part of the seminar series, the topic is how to train pressing.
  3. The fourth part deals with an aspect of pressing which has been the talk recently, that is the so-called “anti-pressing” or “counter-pressing”. Barcelona is everybody’s idol in this regard. That team plays “counter-pressing” to perfection.

” The seminar was absolutely great. It has been totally worth it to be there. Ralf Peter presented incredibly well and was able to provide effective and professional expertise to the participants on.
I was impressed from the quality of the presentations and the use of new software (easy animation and easy Sports-Graphics) to visualize and simplified explanation of the tactical details.
