Soccer Moves That Will Help You Get Around Your Defenders

By: Mirsad Hasic

In soccer, having special soccer moves in your arsenal is important whether you are playing as libero, singer or striker. Your special soccer move will not only improve your overall soccer skills, you will also get credits and respect from your opponents. In this article, I have collected 3 special moves that will really increase your soccer skills (if performed correctly and with precision). Let's start...

Riquelme 360 Move

You will not see this move so often during a soccer game. The Riquelme 360 move is not only impressive; it also takes a while to learn properly. While learning it you should have someone acting like a real defender. You may use one of your teammates or someone that has nave played soccer before.

It actually doesn't matter so much. Keep in mind that this move will require many hours of practice from you to learn it properly. You should therefore never let yourself get discouraged just because you have not managed to perform it right directly.

Ronaldinho's Flip-Flap Move

This move is also difficult to execute and will also require a lot of practice before you can try it out on a real opponent. One way to practice on it is to start to drive the ball smoothly forward and increase the speed each time you manage to execute the move successfully. However, stumbling on the ball few times during the practice should not make you sad. Just keep on trying and the results will come I promise!

Cruyff Move

This move doesn't look so fancy at first sight. However, you should not underestimate the power of a well performed Cruyff move. The great thing with this move is that you can use it whether you are playing in offense or defense. It is also pretty easy to learn and you will not need several hours of practice to master it (as you will need for Riquelme's and Ronaldinho's move).

You may for example use this move to give yourself enough space to clear the ball as defender. Or maybe to get around your defender to and server your striker with quality passes. Goalkeepers tend to use this move often when they want to get rid of their opponent. Keep in mind that dribbling as goalkeeper is not recommended and you should only use it in special situations.
