In The Art of War, Sun Tzu wrote about five essential strategies for victory:
- He will win when he knows when to fight and when not to fight.
- He will win when he knows how to handle both superior and inferior forces.
- He will win whose army is animated by the same spirit throughout his ranks.
- He will win who, prepared himself, waits to take the army unprepared.
- He will win who has the military capacity and is not interfered with by the sovereign.
These strategies for winning are realistic.
These strategies are simple.
The strategies can also be applied to soccer in a number of ways, on and off of the field.
And don’t be fooled for one second, winning absolutely matters.
So, understanding how to win – and having a plan to win – is vital.
