Resumen

SPORIS, Goran et al. Relationship Between Morphological Characteristics and Match Performance in Junior Soccer Players. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2017, vol.35, n.1, pp.37-41. ISSN 0717-9502.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022017000100007.

Soccer players are usually selected based on their anthropometry characteristics rather than their performances. Therefore, the purpose of this cross-sectional study was to examine the relationship between morphological and match performances among junior soccer players. Thirty seven junior soccer players were randomly selected using as stratification criteria age and playing role. Skinfolds (mm) were measured at six sites: triceps skinfold thickness, subscapular skinfold thickness, thigh skinfold thickness, calf skinfold thickness, supraspinal skinfold thickness and abdominal skinfold thickness. In addition, total distance covered during the match, as well as the distance traveled by walking, jogging, moderate and high intensity running and sprinting was determined. The total distance covered was associated with subscapular and abdominal skinfolds. In addition, the subscapular skinfolds were significantly related to high intensity running and sprinting. No other statistically significant correlations were found among other skinfold and performance parameters. The present study showed no significant relationships between morphological and match performances among junior soccer players. Our study supports the conclusions that beside the anthropometry advantage, psychological and soccer-specific skills should be also considered in the selection of soccer players.
