Hi! I’m Mark Wilson with United Soccer Academy.
We are here with Expert Village and we are looking at dribbling, and we are going to
focus on turns and moves to beat defenders. We are going to take a look at the scissors
turn. This turn is actually good in speed, but first off all I’m going to break it down
so you can see the mechanics of the move. So as shown here without pressure, the scissors
turn involves stepping into the ball, around, dropping our shoulders to fake the defender,
and then pushing pass with the opposite foot and into space past the defender. Every turn
or move that we take defenders on must be executed at speed for it to be effective.
Let’s take a look with our demonstrators. Go ahead. So again the scissors, we try to
push the ball past the heels of the defender and accelerate into space. And that turn is called the scissor turn, and
we execute that at speed to beat our opponent.
