How to prepare for a football/soccer match. Today we discuss how to get ready and prepare yourself optimally for your next football game and what kinds of steps you should take to be ready mentally for your next football match. Being ready on a gameday is essential for footballers as football matches are, in the end, the only times your football skills are really judged and put to test. In this video we interview professional footballers Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid & France) and Diego Godin (Atletico Madrid & Uruguay) to find out how professional footballers prepare for big games aswell as hear thoughts from our host Joltter on how to prepare for a soccer match.

Getting ready for a football game consists of many steps. You need to make sure your nutrition and diet is on point, you drink enough water and stay hydrated aswell as get enough sleep. These key elements should be a part of your everyday life if you have dreams of becoming a professional footballer and being as prepared for games as possible. On top of taking care of rest and diet, there are many other things footballers do to prepare for soccer games. Lots of professional footballers listen to music before the game to help them focus, relax and get in the right state of mind – and some footballers even like to visualize the game in advance to try and get in the right mindset. Footballers also have lots of individual rituals they always follow prior to a match; some players like to put their football boots on in a certain order, some like to pray in the dressing room while others might actually just show up to the game and that’s how they get the most out of themselves! There are no right or wrong ways to prepare for a football match but it’s highly important to know what the best pre-match routine for yourself is. In this video we go through different things you can try and hopefully you will learn how to prepare for a football match!
