1. Receiving ball behind an opponent:
Isco's precise pass helps Ronaldo
Second, a little further away from opponent, facing forward to receive ball:
Pulisic catches ball around Marcelo
Third, use your body to block ball between ball and opponent, and return ball with your back to opponent:
Aubameyang steps back to retrieve ball
The receivers must draw these conclusions quickly before receiving ball. If you are an experienced player, you can turn your back to your opponent and pass ball between opponent's legs with outside of ball of your foot. But for beginners, practice basics first. After laying a solid foundation, consider how to change.
Your attention is biggest motivation for Xiaobei!
