Aerial control is such a key aspect of being a top player. Here is the second in our trilogy of Aerial Control Technical Challenges which takes you one step further. To view part 1 click here

With this video we now have multiple outcomes including first touch, turning, dribbling, 1v1 and shooting. This practice will really prepare you for the game, as the majority of the time, the ball will be coming to you off the floor, even if it just slightly. You have to be able to react and control the ball and the top players are the ones who take the ball where they want it on their first touch and not those that first control then take.

Test your self with the height of the ball and remember that with your first touch the ball should be moving along the floor and not bouncing in the air. As ever, make your turns and dribbling skills explosive and dynamic and have you got the quality at the end to finish in the opposite corner?
