When we face a defender, in order to protect ball under our feet, we often choose to hit ball with our back, and defender does not allow us to turn around easily. It is difficult to make a dash when holding ball with back, as when moving forward. The technical action of turning back and passing through crotch teaches us to pass into a passive and active state in process of holding ball with back and complete an easy turn.
Holding ball with your back, you should watch defender behind you and use inside of your foot to move ball sideways to deceive defender and make him move sideways to start defense.
After dribbling ball lightly, pull ball slightly with your toes and pick up ball between defender's legs. When catching ball, use your pivot foot as a pivot to quickly rotate your torso halfway inward.
You must always control ball at your feet, and connection between two movements must be consistent and smooth, otherwise it will be easily intercepted by the opponent.
Keep control of power of ball. If force is too great, ball can get lost under foot. If force is too low, defender can see through it.
After picking up ball, observe position of defender horizontally. If there is no obvious gap between defender's legs, then adapt to situation and do not proceed to next technical action.
Your attention is biggest motivation for Xiaobei!
