      Youd be surprised by how many bad players are out there. Just ask random groups to play with them, even kids or teens

      I want to join the people playing football and basketball at the nearby park but I'm moronic and can't talk to people.
      In the past 10 years I have only played football against my cousins' infant sons when the family meets up for Christmas.

        Man, literally just walk up to the guys waiting for their time to play and ask them if it's ok to join, it's not that hard. If they say no literally just say ok and move on to the next group you can find

    You have to do all the super boring extremely tedious drills 1000x over until you build the muscle memory and don’t have to think about movements, you just do them
    If you have to think to yourself what move you’re going to do, then you’re doing it wrong

    the most important thing in footy is to improve your cardio as far as possible, if you can run for longer periods of time than the opponent then you will eventually best them, and since am assuming ur not playing at a professional level most randoms you play with have below average cardio. so you'll have to make sure to do some sprints and jogs daily in order to keep your cardio up. after that you'll need to do the basics over and over until u start mastering them, passing, shooting, tackling, dribbling. you need to understand how to hit the ball correctly and how to measure the weight of the pass/ the shot as close to perfection as possible. the most useful skill in football when ur trying to beat ur man is body feints, its simple to learn but hard to master, the better you become at feints the easier it will be for you to dunk on scrubs. maybe i'll type more shit later if this still up.
    TLDR: you need lots of practice, CARDIO, repetition, and playing at least once a week.

    The main way of improving is to play against people around your own level or maybe a bit better. Practicing by yourself helps a lot, but I found the most effective to train with at least one person. By yourself you can improve your
    >stamina
    Long distance running, biking, rope jumping, etc., the usual.
    >shooting
    Mark different parts on a wall and aim there, focus on where your feet connect with the ball and your balance, you shouldn't be batting the ball, a kick is more like a golf hit. After you can hit shots properly, now you need someone else to try shooting under stress, after a dribble, moving ball, etc. The focus here is dribbling in a way the ball is where it needs to be for you to execute the shot as if the ball was still, learning how to kick out of position and from a imperfect posture is good but that's for later, try to be as perfect as possible first, then you break it down later.
    >shielding
    To learn how to shield the ball, I'd recommend doing it with someone else, leaning against them, but if you don't have anyone, a wall works. Lean against the wall and do cone drills like you are trying to shield the ball from someone trying to steal from you, switch sides, do it on corners, etc.
    >dribbling
    Dribbling is all about rhythm, an elastico for example is not a single movement, but two parts with different speeds. When you watch players and try to replicate their stuff, pay attention to their whole bodies, the body and face faints and the rhythm of their dribble. Pay attention as well to where the defender is looking and try to find the exact moment he got caught by the dribble. Then break each part of the dribble down and try to repeat.
    >passing
    Passing to the wall helps a lot, firstly focus on short passes and how to receive them properly, then speed up, pass to different heights and distances, try to receive from bounces, pass with different parts of the foot, etc. Do corners as well, tabelas are essential specially on a non-pro environment

      >scanning
      I know, people usually meme about it, but scanning is real. And this one, as well, you need at least one person to help you. Have someone behind you pass to the wall, and as soon as the ball bounces on the wall, you gotta scan, run and receive the ball properly while he tries to steal from you. During game you have to do that every few seconds, look around you and try to remember the position of, at least, the guy who is marking you and the other nearest defender, and try to think of something to do before receiving the ball, be it shielding and leaning one way, shielding and passing the other way, etc. Have something in mind before you receive the ball, most of the times that's the biggest difference between some guys who make it and the guys who don't, those few milliseconds of advantage help a lot. Then later you once you get more confortable you can start paying attention to your teammates, specially the closest ones, and the guys who might be open
      >simple tactical concepts
      Learn about tabela variations, practice them, learn about escadinhas, corta-luz, triangles, etc. All of them can still be used in non-pro football, you just gotta learn how to communicate. Also, formations, even if you are not playing 11v11, you can still translate some concepts of a 442 or a 433 to a 7v7 game, most of the time it involves isolating the best players on situations they can profit on and numerical advantages in key spots.
      >communication
      Any team sport requires constant communication, more vocal on the defensive end, more discreet in the offensive end. If you need to scream do it, but communicate. When you teammate is unaware of someone trying to sneak from behind and steal the ball, tell him. When you see a guy trying to make a run behind the defense, communicate. And many other situations. This is, again, one of those little things that separates the pros from amateurs.

        >defending
        To learn how to defend, learn how to attack, and give it your all. That's it really. Once you know what you opponent might try, you are physically capable of following him around and you are willing to try, you are a good defender. Of course, individually that's all you need, a team defender needs communication as I said before and understanding of the team's tactics.
        >try stupid shit
        Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Neymar, they wouldn't be the dribblers they were if they didn't try stupid shit all the time. Be creative, and you will eventually find something most people have never seen or don't know how to answer. Of course, don't overdo it. Your level of confidence should equal the level of your skills, going past that is being wienery. No one likes a guy who is constantly trying to dribble, vary a little, but don't shy away from things who you know you can do.
        >avoid trouble
        Not everyone can do the same you can, not everyone can do everything well, have patience with your teammates and try to work with your strengths. Some guys will be mad at anything, try to handle that as cool as possible.
        >focus
        Some people focus when they are in a pinch, some people focus when they are calm, some people focus when they are doing well, some people focus when they are not doing well. Try to find out how you normally focus, and try to reproduce that in the game. For me, I usually need to be calm to be focused, so I avoid doing anything crazy, talking too much trash, etc., until I'm fully focused. Some people call it being in the zone or the flow state, but it's basically forgetting everything else outside of the game. And once you understand how you can put yourself in that state, you will find yourself overperforming a lot.
        >consistency
        Practice consistently, play consistently. Playing once a week won't do good for your skills, try to find other places and other people to play with.

          >familiarity
          The ball is your friend, buy a smaller, or a kids ball, and carry it everywhere around your house, dribble your mum, your dad, your sister, your dog, etc., but get familiar with the ball from all angles.

          And... I can't think of anything anymore, but if you want me to expand on something tell me. Sorry for the wait btw, Mother's day and all that.

      I started playing football again recently after a year out. I played 4 games. In my 2nd and 4th games i was awful. In my 3rd game i was awarded MOTM.

      The most important thing to work on is your stamina and fitness. HIIT, sprints, cycling, walking, running.

      If you can spend some time on your own with a ball, it will help a lot. Just practice shooting, long balls, dribbling by yourself.

      Also you need to make sure you aren’t tired when you play. If you did too much before a game, you will be exposed. You need to be physically, mentally ready to play football, even just in a local kickabout.
