The football player


After thorough analysis, the footballer’s main shortcomings are identified and prioritised, without neglecting the fine-tuning of their own technical skills. Therefore a veritable analysis is carried out on the player, involving the correction of every single movement and technical gesture, as well as posture and psychomotor coordination.

The creator


1VS1 was created by Maurizio Silvestri who leveraged his own successes, as well as all the mistakes he made as a youth, to distil all fundamental aspects which must essentially be acquired in football, into a training style: technical skills, intensity and speed of execution, mental strength, passion, humility, self-esteem and human values
