Can biking improve running? Can it improve soccer/football?

I'm getting into Soccer/Football again. Can biking improve running and soccer/football skills? I'm a big fan of long distance biking and from personal experience, the more I improve biking the easier I improve running. Does it help like it seems to?

Also will biking improve soccer/football kicking strength?

    Biking does help with running. It strengthens your legs and it uses some of the same muscles that you use when you`re running. Many of the top sports players bike a lot because its easier to go long distances and it helps with speed and gets your fitness up.
