Soccer involves perceptual-motor skills that operate simultaneously in a rapidly changing environment.1 Successful performance in team sports, such as soccer, requires well-developed perceptual and decision making skills that are evidenced by superior anticipatory motor performance.2 Therefore to maintain ecological validity tests to assess soccer skill should attempt to include reactive or perceptual components with technical and physical tasks.
