Peripheral vision training gained world relevance when a young talent from Canto do Rio, become the 1970 World Cup midfielder for Brazil and played an important part in the league's victory that year. Peripheral vision became essential for the short and long passes, both at the start and the development of an offense, for soccer players in Brazil. In 1999, this type of training became known as "peripheral vision training". The purpose of this paper was to teach peripheral vision training for the coach. The article has two chapters.
