The Challenge
This weeks technical challenge is inspired by Gerard Deulofeu following his superb 1v1 performance for Everton v Aston Villa in the English Premier League last weekend (Sat 21st November 2015) Deulofeu may not be a household name just yet but we see him emerging as a future star. He is a product of the famous Barcelona “La Masia” youth academy where he started at the age of nine and is showing all the technical attributes to be a formidable attacking player. This challenge showcases the 1v1 jinks and feints which he performed to such great effect, akin to Garrincha. We have tied this into an all round functional practice incorporating other skills, dynamic movements and shooting. With 2 progressions also included, this challenge will test your ability and improve your game.
