In football, it is very important to choose right moment to move, especially when overtaking people. Quick changes of direction, spikes and changes of formation, passing ball, Marseille maneuvers, etc. all require good body flexibility and a good foot. movement, technology. The following editor will give you some dribbling tips based on experience of my fellow soccer players:
Item 1. Get moving
The first task after receiving ball is to move, slowly move with ball, do not stop ball after you have caught it, and then look up to see what gaps there are on court.
Most players stop because they are afraid of not knowing what to do next. They want to look and observe before moving on to next step.
The best action at this time is to move ball directly into a space that you can observe after receiving ball.
This way you can make sure you're on best pace and you can avoid chance of being intercepted by an enemy who doesn't know where to kill.
Second moment: look up
Try to develop habit of looking up while dribbling. If you always look down at ball, you are afraid that you will lose ball if you look up.
You can't see what's around you
Where is place?
Where are teammates?
Defenders will attack from this direction.
Of course we need to look at ball at our feet to focus on quality of touch. But at same time, we have to look up and watch situation on court to look for opportunities.
You must train yourself to freely switch between looking up and looking down at ball while dribbling.
Only by looking up and understanding situation well can you know what action to take next.
Third point: place to attack
A big mistake many players make when dribbling is focusing more on defender than on attacking space.
When everyone sees a defender blocking in front of him, many players get lost and just wait for defender to come up to intercept ball in order to put themselves in a relatively passive state.
The worst choice you can make when dribbling on your own is to pay attention to defender's intentions. Remember that you are more active side when in possession and defender is relatively more active than you. Even more nervous, because any of your correct and reasonable handling can cause fatal damage to opponent's defense.
It's best to keep your distance from defender and let him think about how to take ball away from you.
All you have to do is make space in front of you more accessible and not protecttnik to block it.
This is a dash forward with ball.
Or pass ball across gap to a teammate in a more threatening position.
If you can carefully implement these simple ideas, I think you can quickly become a better dribbler.
Now let's remember today's keywords together:
Lift your eyes and look.
Don't be shy, move your head up and down freely and operate in a neutral position. Can you try reading editor's content today to see if it can quickly change your performance on court? I hope you can share your real combat experience with editor by leaving a message!
