Here is a great exercise series that will strengthen your hips and improve your balance in the ankle, knee, and hip. During the kicks, the plant leg is working on balance.

4 Way Hip Exercises With A Band- one of the best exercises for strength and stability

Soccer is a game played on the solid ground and in the air. I always sit in amazement of how the body moves when I watch over the field.  A player steps on one foot and maintains postural stability, sometimes against a defender, while leaning at an angle. Then the player manages to trap a ball or flick it in the air while the other leg is unsupported. The ability to stabilize on one foot and carry out a completely separate task with the other unsupported foot is quite skillful. How can you performance train for these situations? And how can you recover from an injury and be able to return to these tasks?
