Football is the most popular sport where the word is interesting nowadays. Game in which two teams of 22 players, using any part of their bodies except their hands and arms, try to maneuver the ball into the opposing team’s goal.

To get the ball over a goal line, into a goal, or between goalposts by running, passing, or kicking. Only the goalkeeper is permitted to handle the ball and may do so only within the penalty area surrounding the goal. The team that scores more goals wins. Now I will show you most useful skills to learn to improve your skills and good dribbling.

Cruyff Turn

The Cruyff Turn (also spelled Cruijff Turn in the Netherlands ) is an evasive football move or dribbling named after Dutch player Johan Cruyff. A player with the ball moves past another player by pushing the ball across and behind their own leg and then turning and moving in the direction of the ball.

How it work?

  1. Shape your body as if you were going to pass or cross the ball.
  2. But then drag the ball behind your standing leg with the inside of your foot.
  3. Turn your shoulders and your hips so that you are back in line with the ball and then race away.

What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If the ball seems to be going all over the place when you are doing the Cruyff and not in a straight line behind you then you are probably kicking it, not pushing it. So as you do the move have your foot almost trap the ball for a split-second, pause, then push it into space instead of kicking it all in once motion.

 

DRAG BACK

A drag-back allows you to get away from an opponent by going around them, whether they are in front of you or slightly to the side. In order to do a drag-back the ball should be around 50 cm away from you. Put your stronger foot on top of the ball.

  • Drag Back while Running– While you’re dribbling and at the moment you decide to change direction, place your planting foot near the side of the ball. Then place the foot you’re dragging back with on top of the ball. Make sure you place it in the center of the ball. If you place it too far to the front, back, left or right, you may not get a good grip on the ball. Now drag the ball back in the opposite direction you were going and continue dribbling in that direction with speed to get away from your opponent.
  • Drag Back while Standing Still– Because you’re standing still, you need to lead your opponent into thinking you’re dribbling in a certain direction. So begin dribbling in a specific direction. Place your planting foot near the side of the ball. Then place the foot you’re dragging back with on top of the ball. Make sure you place it in the center of the ball. If you place it too far to the front, back, left or right, you may not get a good grip on the ball. Drag the ball back a bit and then using the opposite foot, begin dribbling in the other direction with speed to get away from your opponent.

THE ROLL

Break this move into two parts. First part is to roll the ball across your plant foot and get the ball to ramp up over your foot. Once that is going smooth, then do the first part and add in the second part of bring your kicking foot around your plant leg to start juggling the ball to complete the trick. Repeat until you have mastered it.

What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If the ball is popping straight up or going in the opposite direction of where you want it to go on the pop you are hitting the wrong part of your foot. If you hit closer to your heel that’s like the ball hitting a wall. You want to hit the ball near the base of your toes so that part of your foot acts like a ramp and causes the ball to pop up and go over your foot.

 

 

STEPOVER TURN

The step over is a dribbling move or feint in football used to fool a defensive player into thinking the offensive player in possession of the ball is going to move in a direction they do not intend to move in.

Key point:

  1. Turn your body angled in the direction you are faking to go.
  2. Bring dominant leg around the front of the ball
  3. Touch in opposite direction with the outside of your foot
  4. Change pace

What Player Could Be Doing Wrong:

If you are messing this move up a lot you are probably going to fast. The step over isn usually’t done at full speed so slow down, do the move and then go fast! If the defender is winning the ball from you to often or you are hitting the cone in this exercise make sure you do the move early, don’t get to close to the defender because that will increase the chance of them winning the ball from you.
