exactly is a lightfooted soccer team ?
It's a team that's light on their feet, quick, Ronaldinho is a lightfooted player as an example,
he has quick feet.
You want your team to have this ability overall, the ability
to run effortlessly, fast but not dependant on power
speed, more of an agility in their quickness. These teams tire less as a tournament goes on and tend
to play better in the later stages.
The 2006 Champions League final between Barcelona and Arsenal
is an example of 2 of the premier lightfooted soccer
teams in the world.
Ronaldinho from Barcelona, Robben from Chelsea, Ronaldo from Manchester United, Kaka
from AC Milan are more examples of these kinds of players, they are all great players
of course, but it's their lightness on their
feet that makes them great.
won the Champions League in 2006 with players like Ronaldinho, Messi, Eto'o, they
were key ingredients in their success, all 3 very light on their feet. Arsenal had lightfooted
players like Henry, Van Persie, Fabregas carrying
them throughout the competition all the way to the finals.
You can compare it to a fresh young racehorse, it's like a combination of youthful freshness
and speed, it's a deadly thing to have on your
team, you can run your opposition into the ground and go very far in a tournament
like the Champions League.
