A player can learn how to master the basic skills of Soccer such as shooting and passing, but in a real game his performance sometimes breaks down, his pass is correct, but he is a little to slow in making it and someone intercepts it. He kicks the ball accurately but the player who should has recieved it has darted off elsewhere, and so on.
Here is the problem in coaching, of bridging the gap between good performance of a skill in practice and a successful use of the same skill against oponents in a game.
