What to practice as a midfielder
There are three key midfield roles that you need to be aware of and we have a curriculum for each of them Central Defensive Midfielder (CDM), Central Attacking Midfielder (CAM) and Wide Midfielders. Make sure you understand each of the roles as you could find yourself in any one of those positions in a game scenario.
We can’t stress enough the need to be technically excellent as a midfielder as your range of passing and your ability to transition from in possession to out of possession must be brilliant. So practice the Brilliant Basics at every session.
We have pre-selected the drills you should work through below. Make sure you can master all of them over time.
