Watching the MLS season is a great reminder of the opportunities we have to gain extra advantages on our opponents through video analysis.
As technology evolves, so does soccer, with the importance of video analysis skyrocketing in the past 5 years. As coaches, we can now understand the strengths and weaknesses of our opponents through studying them.
We can identify weak players, spaces to exploit, and overall, the best way to approach the game. This gives us a significant advantage over our opponents before the game starts.
However, analyzing our opponents effectively is difficult as it not only requires a knowledge of soccer analysis but also an understanding of the software involved.
Coach Hamza El Kadioui’s expertise lies within soccer analysis. He provides courses for the more experienced, and novices in video analysis.
Coach Hamza breaks down the method of analysis into three pillars, what/ why, how, and who. His concept stems from the importance of understanding your goals before you move to analyze.
As coaches, we often use videos from our games or opponent’s games to teach our players about where we can improve. By selecting relevant snips from games, we can more effectively convey a message to our players to speed up their learning curve. Coach Hamza pairs this with freeze frames and annotations as well as commentary.(Click on the arrow to play videos).
