Steve’s presentation, “Performance optimisation in International footballers” will consider the unique environment of international football where teams are required to peak every 2 years for tournaments that follow a busy season of club football and European competition. The challenge is for the player to develop or at least maintain their capability to meet the demands of international and club football whilst also being able to perform for their club week in week out.

The presentation will investigate strategies implemented over the last 6 years with the international team to support players to optimally perform, whilst also trying to mitigate injury risk.
