Combine Coach's Overall Comments:
 

Technical: Solid skills

 

See things faster, play quicker and more balls forward

1v1 defending ok, but at times I think you need to get closer to the players when defending (work on moving your feet)

Solid passing out of the back (at times you tried too many diagonals balls)

Can improve accuracy with long ball

 

Tactical:  Superior understanding of playing the game

 

Great soccer brain, solid understanding on how to play the game

Very good at reading the game, good decisions when to go forward or when to stay back and defend

Better decisions making with the ball

Great job in organizing and communicating in the small and full-sided games

 

Overall:   Solid combine great work rate and attitude.  Excellent understating of playing as a right back. Your mentality also seems suited for the professional game and should be able to continue competing at a higher level.  Need to work on your crossing and better in 1v1 situation when defending.  It was a pleasure coaching you in the InfoSport combine.
