Do you play on the school soccer team? Maybe you just want to go outside and play with your friends. Maybe you aspire to be the next great footballer. Whatever it is, football is fun and requires skill to become a better player. As you learn more about soccer, try these sizing tips.
It’s smart to fold when a defender starts closing in on you. If you must dribble, dribble as far as possible, but pass as the defender approaches you. When you pass, the other player can figure out what to do next. If you have the ball and you see an open space, move to it. You want to bring a defender to you to open up the field for one of your teammates. When the defender gets close, pass the ball to someone in a better position than you. Let’s hope they score!
If you’re battling a defender, try to overtake them instead of just holding the ball. You can hold the ball for a while by covering it with your body and shifting from foot to foot, but eventually you will have to attack and get past the defender. Speeding to the finish line is very tempting, but you need some support first. Don’t attack unless you have at least one player on each side. You need to save the ball with a quick one-way pass in case too many defenders get too close to you. It’s time to take advantage of the advice you’ve read in the field.
