Even though the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says that the possibility of getting back into the tie against Bayern Munich is not impossible, he is thought to be seriously considering resting several key players with the Premier league match during the weekend in mind.
The chances of England batting better at the European U21 tournament seems to be much better than before. It’s hard to understand how Pearce decided Michael Mancienne, a defender, was a better bet for midfield against Spain than £20million-rated Everton star Jack Rodwell.

The Hit the Coach soccer drill is for soccer players ages 3, 4, 5 and 6 (U3, U4, U5, U6).
This is my favorite practice game for U4 and U6 soccer players.
It’s easy, fun and the kids love it. It teaches many things – ball control, soccer dribbling, kicking the ball while running, looking up while dribbling and shooting. The kids learn while having fun and don’t get tired of it.

This game teaches players to look up while dribbling (you will never have to say "look up" because they will have to look up to avoid running into each other.
