  • A great insight to the importance of the first touch from Christian Pulisic,  a 19 year player for USMNT and Borussia Dortmund.
    • In a game situation, the first touch is never an end in itself. “As you get older, it’s about the movements,” Pulisic says. “It’s knowing which direction to take your first touch, and not just receiving it. A lot of times it’s not about stopping the ball under your foot and not having any options after that. It’s putting yourself in a good position for what you want to do with it.”
