The phase of the warm-up (also called "conditioning" or, more commonly, "heating") in football, as in other sports, is the physical and mental preparation preceding a performance and/or training and is often an integral part of it. It has a duration ranging from 5 (or even less in the case of sudden changes) to 10-15 minutes and this can vary depending on the outside temperature which could increase the risk of accidents.
To enter the psychology of “the number one” is extremely fascinating. Today, on the shirts of the goalkeepers in the Serie A and in the Minor Leagues, the number 1 is used less and less. There are even fewer defenders still wearing the number 1 - just consider the choices of Donnarumma (99), Marchetti (22), Reina (25), Hart (21).
