Defender Examples

Below are examples of what a Soccer Spotlight highlight video looks like for a defender. Defender videos can either be for outside backs/wing backs, or for center backs.

Outside back/wing back videos will emphasize the following abilities

  • Quality in 1v1 attacking/defending
  • Overlapping to deliver a cross
  • Tracking back defensively.

Center back videos will emphasize the following abilities

  • Range of passing
  • Ability in the air
  • 1v1 defending
  • Composure under pressure. 

There is a short 10 second intro slide that includes the player’s name, positions, number, and current team. The clips are ordered with goals, assists and chances created first. This is to catch the coach’s attention, and if the coach does not have time to watch the entire video, at the very least they were able to see the player’s best attributes.
