What should you do when defending 1v1? What details should you pay attention to in order to better fulfill your own defensive tasks?
Slowly move one or two steps closer to attacking ball carrier.
Don't move too far away from enemy, this will give him enough space and time to look up.
Go forward to squeeze space for opponent so they can grab ball with their hand, forcing attacking ball carrier to crouch to protect ball at their feet.
Don't rush to grab
The attacking player likes defender to go up so he can easily get around defender in one hit.
Once you've taken a reasonable defensive position, you'll need to be very patient, take small steps to side, and back away slowly.
Always keep a distance of one or two steps between yourself and attacker.
Keep your feet moving [in small steps]
The legs are constantly moving in small steps.
Keep your eyes on ball and pay no attention to any part of attacker's body, such as feet, hips, or shoulders.
When it's time to steal ball, step forward and steal it very firmly and confidently.
When an attacker steps on ball, it will be difficult for him to make a second correction in a short time. This is a very good time to capture.
Move your whole body forward on slide.
Your attention and support is best motivation for editor!
