Though soccer may never reach the level of popularity in the U.S. that it has attained elsewhere, it is nonetheless a very popular sport, particularly on a participant level.
Caligiuri, a member of the 1988 U.S. Olympic team and one of the first Americans to compete at the top European professional levels, presents a valuable, well-organized instructional aimed at the skilled player looking to move to the next level. Rather than discussing the simple art of receiving a pass, he offers tips on immediately turning that reception into an offensive thrust. His approach relies on aggressiveness: a defensive stop is most valuable when an immediate offensive strike results.
Chapters cover passing, heading, dribbling, receiving, goalkeeping, and developing the proper attitude. Each skill chapter also includes appropriate drills.
Soccer players looking to improve will seek out this fine guide.
