Do you wish you were better at football? Are you interested in performing the same tricks pros do? If this is you, then it’s time to read the rest of this article. You will benefit and your team is going to be happy too.
Use the inside of the foot to kick the ball for short passing. For long passing, kick the ball with the front of your foot, where the laces are. This type of kicking approach gives you more power to drive the ball further down the field.
Try learning to do the trick the Outside Elastico. It is great for when you are positioned on the flanks and need to cut inside. Start by putting a cone on the ground. Start about five steps away from the cone. Start dribbling in that direction. When you approach the cone, lightly touch the outside of the ball and then the inside. The outer touch will fool opponents on the field. Remember that your inside touch should be greater than your outside touch.
Always be on the lookout to surprise your opposing team. Good players will notice the plays you make and predict them. If defenders are getting closer, make a pass to the nearest open spot rather than following a pattern.
Cross the ball to the same side for a few plays to establish a pattern. You will lull the defense into thinking you will always play the same way. The element of surprise will be with you when you then change direction without warning.
Football is, at its essence, a team sport. This is important to bear in mind. If you don’t play as a team, it will not benefit you. Instead, concentrate on the team. When you make personal sacrifices you will succeed.
Now you can improve your game on the field. Keep practicing and you will soon see results on the field. Try your best, help the team, and continue to improve.
