  • Be dedicated to improving. While some players in this rank may be technically better than you to begin with, out working your competition will see you soar past them.
  • Practice aerials and frequently try to use this training in match scenarios. Learning and perfecting aerials now will lead to better results at higher ranks.
  • Focus on being more of a playmaker than just a defender or a goalscorer. Play passes off the back wall, play diagonal balls and generally just be more aware of your teammates position.
  • Rotation is a must at this level if you want to succeed. So watch training tutorials or learn from more skilled players how to rotate properly
  • Consider adding a mic to your setup or playing with a friend who you work well with. Effective communication at this level is a sure fire way to put together consistent wins
