Premier League 101: Soccer Defending Drills
Robbie Mustoe, a former Premier League midfielder, and Tim Howard, the former goalkeeper for the US Men's National team, talk through one of the most crucial skills in basic soccer, one on one defending.
Simply put, defending is trying to keep the other team from scoring. See a live-action example where Virgil van Dijk navigates a difficult defending situation against one of the best dribblers in the Premier League, Raheem Sterling. Robbie and Tim highlight the importance of patience and body position.
