Hi PingSkills Team
I have again watched the videos of matches of Koji Matsushita,my main idol,and I have noticed that he often goes for seemingly surely lost balls.
Do you have any idea how can he do it?
I know that it is the matter of his immense physical condition,but....I am not sure if you will understand what I am talking about.
For example younger defenders simply let the ball go when they see that it is too far from them.
He fearlessly go for every ball.
Is it something that can be learned or...where is the difference?
Yes, going for everything is something that you can learn in training. I remember when I trained in Japan as a youngster, the biggest shame was if you let the ball go past you without touching it. It is probably just a mindset that is reinforced from an early age.
