LAHORE: The Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) set up a state-of-the-art Global Positioning System (GPS) system to train the national footballers for upcoming international commitments. Commonly used for athletics worldwide, the GPS technology and VO camera will now be installed at the national footballers’ ongoing training camp here.

The newly installed technology would benefit the national coaches in evaluating and assisting each athlete in enhancing their fitness in accordance with their requirements. VO camera assistance will also be used throughout the training. 36 players were shortlisted to prepare for the upcoming international engagements, who will undergo several workouts to improve both their physical and game-playing skills.

Details further suggest that the foreign physical trainer Rodrigo Steves put the footballers through an enduring VO2max test on Tuesday, which evaluated the data on the stamina and strength of the players. Speaking on the occasion, the head coach of the Pakistan Men’s Football team – Shahzad Anwar – stated that the federation is paying attention to each player in order to improve their fitness and skills.

“We are trying to improve the abilities of each player by paying attention, for this purpose we are also taking help from the latest technology,” said Anwar. “So, we are hoping that by improving the skills and fitness they will be able to prepare for important challenges, in the next phase there will be more physical tests, in the light of which each player will be given a training plan according to his needs,” he concluded.
