Generally, a few factors determine what goes in, like is it a game day or practice, how important is the match, what’s the weather like. etc. Here is a rough breakdown of the average player’s pack their soccer bags:
Cleats – If it’s game day and you are wearing your cleats on the ride, then there should be a pair of spare cleats in the bag. If not, then two pairs of cleats.
Laces – Always carry extra laces. The one time your laces fray, you will need to have something to go to.
Gloves – A pair of field players gloves will be essential if it’s a cold weather game. Do not assume that you can play without gloves, unless you absolutely cannot stand the feel of them as you play.
Ball – Depending on how big your bag is, take a spare ball. You can use it during warm up and kick it around while others are still getting ready.
Socks, Guards, and Wraps – You can use the wraps on your cleats as well as your shins. The guards protect your shins and an extra pair of socks also helps.
Snacks – Another extremely useful thing to carry around are some power bars or protein bars.
