Krystian Kresso and Kuba Lojewski on their experience in Portugal with OS Beleneses Academy and F.C Sintrense.
During my two weeks in Portugal I learned a lot and saw many differences between playing in Portugal and the European lifestyle compared to North America. The actual speed of playing in Portugal was a lot more intense and higher paced.
It also required very fast decision-making. Also, as was expected, very high levels of tactical understanding and technical capabilities were needed as well. Moreover, I learned how professional training sessions are set up and run, as well as video analysis and pre-match training sessions.
In addition to that, the overall lifestyle of the people here is so much different. From a very young age kids play soccer and I saw that first hand when I played on the street with some kids. People live and breathe the game in Portugal and begin development and playing constantly from a very young age. Overall, my experience was great and I have a lot to take away from my trip to Belenenses.
