some good comments above. The one thing I'll add is the focus on wrong person is a result of framing so loosely. The cropped photos - 2 & 5 represent the loosest you should be framing IN CAMERA. Then you crop tighter from there. Soccer is probably the hardest sport to follow this advice though because so much of the action takes place too far away. There's also the fear when first starting out that you'll miss something if you frame tightly in camera. The sooner you can conquer that fear the better off you'll be. Yes you'll occasionally lose a hand/foot - but the remaining shots will be much, much better. As mentioned, you're making improvements. Keep at it. It's a process.
