Findings revealed that lowering the number of players increased the number of technical actions per player and the physical demands of the SSG. The

However, information about the external ML in footballers with CP, paying special attention to short-term high-intensity actions, could help coaches to better understand the physical demands of CP football in each FT. Furthermore, this knowledge may
