Soccer is a sport that is characterised by intermittent dynamics, with moderate and high-intensity efforts due to short-duration and high intensity repetitive actions. Currently, controlling athletic training is of vital importance for performance. Competitive soccer needs a high physical and biological preparation, since each of these aspects is necessary to be able to withstand the high loads of training and competition performed by the soccer player. This review analyzes two specific sections: (a) functional parameters, such as the game's temporal structure, anthropometry, oxygen consumption, heart rate, lactate levels and Rating of Perceived Exertion (RPE); and (b) biochemical parameters, such as uric acid, glycerol, glucose and haematological levels. This review attempts to identify performance indicators that may help in the training of young soccer players.
