Performing Under Pressure in Elite Football

Watch Geir Jordet present a nice overview of research on performing under pressure in elite football. Geir shows how high ego, ego threat, and emotional distress can lead to self regulation failure, that is, missed penalties in footbal. He also gives examples of how effective emotion regulation, including celebrating, helps players perform under pressure.
