    The Best Gear for Playing Soccer in the Cold

    A sport that is played all around the world, soccer has been played in many weather conditions, be it under hot summer sun or in the elements of winter. In fact, many soccer players prefer to play in cold weather as opposed to really hot weather. Though difficult to breathe in the cold, hot weather can be much more dangerous when intense cardio is performed. When temperatures drop, however, it’s important to wear the correct gear for playing soccer in the cold. How to choose soccer shin guards may still be a personal preference, but in order to stay warm while running up and down the field, players need the correct head, hand, body, and foot gear. The top brands like Under Armour, Adidas, and Nike have created clothing tailored specifically for these cold weather conditions.

    Frenkie de Jong, a Future Star in the Making

    Frenkie de Jong, a Future Star in the Making

    The name Frenkie de Jong may not sound familiar for most people.

The young Ajax midfielder has been displaying his passing and dribbling abilities for the past 2 seasons but really came to his own during the 2017-18 season. Last year, he had the best passing accuracy and dribble success rate in the Eredivisie with 91.5 percent and 90.3 percent respectively and that was while playing as a centre-back in a 3-4-3 or 4-3-3 system during a large part of the season.
