From the editor
Welcome to the 27th issue of SoccerCoachingInternational. This issue is entirely dedicated to International soccer’s second biggest tournament, the 2008 edition of the European Championship held in Switzerland and Austria. SoccerCoachingInternational followed some of the 16 participating teams during their preparation for the tournament up to the knock-out stage by attending training sessions and analysing a handfull of games. During our tour around Switzerland and Austria we were not only fortunate enough to watch the world’s best players and coaches train and play, but we were also able to experience the Euro atmosphere first hand. Another championship experience we will remember for the rest of our lives.
Of course the tour brought more than experiences and memories to reminisce about, as it laid the groundwork for this SoccerCoachingInternational Euro 2008 special issue featuring 5 exclusive articles on Russia, the Netherlands, Italy, Portugal and Sweden. Of course this issue also featured our training session section: with 14 pages of exercises we spotted during our tour around Switzerland and Austria. Of course a special issue would not be complete without some interesting facts and food for thought and our very own Euro rankings.
Yours in soccer,
Managing Editor SCI
