Most sports played in America require hand-eye coordination. Soccer, more than any other sport, requires foot-eye coordination. Research done at the Institute for Neurology in London confirms vision controls the movement of the foot. This soccer skill allows players to make pinpoint passes, free kick with precision, fake out the defense and dribble the ball. Foot-eye coordination also allows a player to stop a soccer ball with his foot and make adjustments to intercept the ball. The development of foot-eye coordination allows a player to keep his head up during ball handling.
