Fitness level: Assuming your hear and lungs are healthy, your level of fitness is the likely reason for your shortness of breath. Appropriate diet and bmi are important. Start a regular cardiovascular training program and progress it as tolerated. This will improve your cardiovascular fitness on the soccer field.
