Learn the secrets behind the mindset of a winning football team

In football, perhaps more than any other sport, success hinges on team performance rather than individual play.

As coaches are well aware, inspiring a group of players to perform as a finely tuned, coordinated unit is an on-going challenge.

While several factors can interfere with cohesion and flow of the team, no previously published work has specifically addressed how to identify, prevent and overcome such problems.

In One Goal: The Mindset of Winning Soccer Teams, internationally renowned performance psychologist and author of the best-selling Focused for Soccer, Bill Beswick, delivers an unrivalled guide to developing a winning team mindset.
