Hi, I’m Chris Murray, and I’m going to demonstrate
to you on how to do a drag swerve. In soccer, there’s many different moves that you can
do in order to fake out your defenders, and also to change direction. By being able to
change direction quickly and at a split-second, it really gives you an edge over your opponents.
Often and times, players dribble into areas of the field where there’s a lot of defenders
and they need to get out of there extremely quickly. A drag swerve can allow you to do
that. A drag swerve is done by pulling the ball at the sole of your foot in front of
your body, and then using the outside of your foot quickly to take it the other way. So,
if you’re dribbling forward, a drag swerve is done by using the sole of your foot to
take it forward, and then before your foot hits the ground again, you take it back with
the outside of that foot. By being able to do a drag swerve quickly and at a split-second
really gives you an edge over your opponent by being able to get out of that trouble area
and find your next pass or move on to your next move. So again, a drag swerve is done
by pulling the ball forward, and then, before your foot hits the ground, taking it back
in the opposite direction. And that’s how you do a drag swerve.
