Top 5 Best and Most Effective Soccer (Football) Dribbling Moves

This is a how to guide for the Top 5 Best and Most Effective Soccer (Football) Dribbling Moves.

Dribbling is one of the most important skills to possess as a Soccer player. However, if you can’t get past defenders, dribbling will be relatively useless. If you want to become an effective dribbler, you will have to learn how to get past defenders using your creative dribbling abilities.

Here is a list of the top 5 best and most effective Soccer (Football) Dribbling Moves:

Please note, all these moves must be completed with a quick acceleration of pace after completed, otherwise the defender will have no problem catching up to you.

1) Roll Over

The roll over is a very basic Soccer dribbling move, however it is very effective. You dribble towards an opponent, once he makes a lunge at the ball you quickly “roll the ball over” with the bottom of your right or left foot, to the opposite side of your body, leaving your opponent lunging for thin air.

2) Step Over (Scissor)

The step over is probably one of the most common Soccer moves simply because it is so effective (when done properly). While dribbling towards an opponent, you “step over the ball” (make a circular motion around the ball) with your right or left foot, you then take a touch with your other foot in the opposite direction, and accelerate away from the defender.

3) Pirouette (Maradona)

Once an opponent makes a lunge at the ball, you will reach for the ball and pull it back with the bottom of your left or right boot, you will then proceed to turn your body 90 degrees and pull the back again a second time, with your opposite foot. You make want to look at videos of Zinedine Zidane or Maradona for a good demonstration of this Soccer move. During their Soccer careers they made this move their own.

4) In and Out

The In and Out is a simple Soccer move, but very effective when done with speed. As suggested you first take a small touch towards the inside of your body with the inside of your left or right boot. Once the opponent makes a lunch, you quickly take a touch away from your body with the outside of the same boot, and accelerate into open space.

5) Nut Meg (Panna)

The nutmeg although a riskier move, can be very effective in getting you out of trouble (you will also leave your opponent humiliated). When confronted by an opponent, the situation may arise where his/her legs are relatively wide. At this point you can proceed to pass the ball between the defenders legs and quickly accelerate to meet the ball on the other side.

Soccer – Football Tips – The Importance of Motivation and Discipline

How much importance do you place of Motivation and Discipline in your quest for stardom in the world of professional sports, in particular Soccer/Football?

The competition for aspiring professional soccer/footballers all over the world has become even more intense now with the level of participation rates and professional leagues beginning to appear across more countries than ever.

Historically Professional Football has been dominated by Soccer/Footballers from Europe and South America. Over the last 5-10 ten years we have seen the emergence of many Soccer/footballers from many new continents and countries such as Africa, Asia, Middle East, Australia and even some of the smaller European and South American countries who previously have not offered to much.

What does this all mean for today’s Aspiring Professional Soccer/Footballer?

Well looking at it all from a bird’s eye view it seems that the competition for the very few professional places available in squads has significantly increased, adding to this the amount of distractions readily available to aspiring players today is at an all time high.

Distractions such as Internet sites like Facebook, MySpace, not to mention extravagant Cable TV, Computer games such PlayStations, Xbox, adding to this the lure of gangs, drugs and alcohol, which is becoming even more of a concern then in the past.

With all this in mind it is even more critical for an aspiring Soccer/Footballers that they address two very important factors of their character.

1. What is motivating them?
2. How disciplined are they?

What is motivation?

Motivation is something that keeps you going when you feel there is nothing left to give. Motivation is something that drives to the point of no return. For each aspiring Soccer/Footballer their motivation can be different. For some it may be the freedom from poverty for both themselves and their families. For others it may simply be the money and fame. Whilst for someone else it may be purely for the love of the game.

Whatever your motivation is, uncover it, understand it and use it to drive you against your competition.

What is Discipline?

Discipline is something you either have or you don’t. However beware, if you do not have it, get it as fast as you possibly can, for a player without discipline is destined to grace the amateur fields of football forever.

You achieve discipline by consistently working towards you goal. Regular training instead of watching TV. Training at the park on a Saturday morning’s instead of going to the shopping centre. Discipline is not a sometimes thing, it is a characteristic, a habit. If you are disciplined in your football you will be disciplined in your studies, your work life and everything else life throws at you.

With the competition for professional footballers at all time high, can you really afford not be motivated and disciplined when your competition is?
