Top football requires intense concentration and constant awareness of what is happening around the player. A momentary loss of focus makes the difference between keeping possession or losing the ball. Football is a sport of rapidly changing actions and movements of both ball players, so highly developed foot/eye coordination, dynamic visual acuity and multitasking, (split-vision), are just as important as good, static visual acuity.
