|ORIENTATED CONTROL WITH FAINT||X||x||x||x||XXX|
We can see that in futsal the part of the feet used for the ball control are fundamentally 2: Interior and Sole, while in football sole is very very few used as exterior, instep and chest in futsal. After this analisys I can affirm that SOLE SKILLS are ESSENTIALS for a futsal player.
WHY DOES A FUTSAL PLAYER NEED AN AXCELLENT BALL CONTROL?
- The small space obligate the player to master the ball always keeping contact with the ball itself. Ball far from the foot means very high possibility of loosing the ball. Sole is multidirection surface and llows player endless possibilities of movement without loosing the contact with the ball; it means that you can move the ball forwards, backwards or to either side quickly in order to get you out of any tight spots. It’s what makes the really good players look so tricky. Many football players who come from Futsal; Neymar, Marcelo,Coutinho has brought this technical element in football too, because their processor is formed bymany years of futsal practice.
CONTROL, ORIENTATED CONTROL AND ORIENTATED CONTROL WITH FAINT: which is the difference?
Control is the movement to receive and master the ball, can be done in position or in movement
Control orientated, is the control of the ball towards a direction, is very very used in futsal, due to the extreme mobility of the players, they need to receive in movement without loosing the rythm but also to avoid to loose the speed and the advantage on the opponent
Control orientated with faint, is a control towards a direction but with a previous faint to gain advantage on opponent, is also very popular in futsal, due to the lack of space, to gain advantage on opponent.
In the video you can see not only how the sole control is done but also why and when is used in futsal.
