Hi! I’m Mark Wilson with United Soccer Academy.
We are here with Expert Village and today we are talking about dribbling. We are going
to introduce some pressure into dribbling, and we are going to look at the basics of
how we take on opponent when we dribble the soccer ball. We have to remember a couple
of things here. When we take on the defender, we want to try and attack their front foot,
we want to try and get the ball into space behind them. So we try and get the ball past
their heels, we attack their heel side, and when we get past them, we have to accelerate
into the space. So let’s take a look. We push the defender and we get past their heels and
accelerate. We can just have a look at that again. You take your front foot and then go
past the heels so it accelerates into space. One more time by doing this, by attacking
the heels of the defender, it makes it very difficult for the defender to turn and chase
after the ball. It is important when we take on opponents, we identify the positioning
so we can try and fake by using varies turns and try to go to the heel side, and when we
do that we have to accelerate into space. So we are looking at dribbling the ball against
opponents with the basics..
