Play Like Your Football Heroes

Publisher: Walker Books

Wouldn't it be great if someone wrote a manual about how to become a successful footballer? A step-by-step guide to progressing from a kickabout in the park with your mates to being able to play like Harry Kane or Lucy Bronze?

If that's just what you've been waiting for, look no further. Don't expect the journey to be easy but do expect plenty of fun, interesting anecdotes and quite a few very bad jokes along the way.

Using examples of both male and female players who have exceptional skill in particular areas of the game, the authors show how success is hugely dependent on hard work and the right mindset.

Whatever aspect of your game you're looking to improve: striking, dribbling, passing or ball control, you'll find tips and ideas to help you. Training, preparation, play and mental attitude are broken down into small, easy-to-understand steps with added illustrations, real-world exercises and motivational stories.

Any aspiring footballer will find plenty of advice, inspiration and enjoyment in this practical and entertaining guide to becoming a better player.
