(Scene starts with a second person view of the coach from the front)

Coach: "I cannot stress enough the importance of the basics. Soccer is a game of complicated simplicity. Hundreds of very simple things are meshed together to create complex sequences of events. Unless a team has mastered the basics it won’t be able to compete against a team that has, no matter how good their strategy is. A good player is not someone who can deak out 3 guys in a row but a player who can quickly give and receive quality passes. A great player is someone who can do both."
