Soccer is the most popular sport in the world and it holds that title for a reason. This fast paced, high action sport requires its players to be in top shape as they spend their 90 minutes on the field running and sprinting. Endurance is a must for all athletes who play soccer and training is important for them to be in the top shape necessary to compete.
