Hey, I'm Matty Teaney, I've played soccer my entire life. I have coached the past seven years, and I'm here to show you a few things about the world's most popular sport, soccer. The equipment for soccer is pretty basic. It's not like other sports like hockey where you have tons of equipment. The basics are shoes. These are indoor shoes, they don't have any cleats. These are the outdoor shoes. These are a little bit worn as you can tell. They're going to have cleats. Better for gripping, better for wet weather. On turf, you're going to want to generally play with turf shoes. Those look like, those look like these except they have just a bunch of different little, little tiny spikes all over the whole entire bottom of the shoe. You're going to want to have your soccer socks. Underneath your soccer socks you're going to want to put shin guards if you're playing competitively. If you're just practicing, you don't always need those. If you're going against someone you're going to want to get shin guards. Those go on, your shin guards go on underneath your socks. You're going to need a ball. I like to have a soccer bag because it's a nice little place to put your ball and all your equipment in here, and then after your shoes get really stinky and smelly, you can put them in these pockets that breathe well. And that's about it for your equipment for soccer. You might want to get some short shorts. If you're playing with something like basketball shorts, it's a little bit harder to run in. It's harder to maneuver. And I like to have a nice loose fitting shirt. If you have longer hair it's easier for me to tie mine up, and the mustache is not mandatory.
