What’s up, guys? Today we’re going to be going over five easy skill moves that you can use in a match. These are practical moves, not fancy moves, and moves that are actually going to benefit you in game situations. All right, guys. The first move we’re covering is the Chop or the Fake Shot move. Now, don’t be fooled by the simplicity of this move. It is an incredibly effective move, used at all levels in this game to beat defenders. The idea behind it is to push the ball out to the side, and then make it look like you’re going to clear, shoot, or cross the ball.
Then, instead of crossing, shooting, or clearing the ball, you will bring the ball back out the other way. If the defender has bought your fake, you will move past him. I find that this is a great move for strikers and wingers, because for strikers, they can fake a shot, get it onto their other foot, and then shoot. For wingers, this is a great move to fake a cross, get it onto your other foot, and cross or to cut inside and then get a shot off. Next move is the Cruyff Turn, a move that is so great when you want to fake a shot, a cross, or you just want to turn quickly. I find this move to be one of the most effective out of all moves.
Yes, it looks simple. Yes, it is one of the easier moves to learn, but it also is one of the most effective. This is the move I recommend every single player to learn. I don’t care what position you play, because there are so many situations where this move comes in handy. Next move is the Stop and Go.
This is another pretty simple move to learn but can be very effective, especially in wide areas. The idea is to cut the ball back and stop it so that you break the defender’s momentum. And as he’s slowing down or comes to a stop, you push the ball back down the line and leave them in the dust. Next is another one of my favorites– the La Croqueta. Now, the actual movement of this move is fairly easy to learn, but most of this move is done in the timing. What you want to do is wait for the defender to dive in and then perform this move quickly to move past them.
It just involves moving the ball from one foot to the other very quickly and then going out the other way. You can either do this by hitting the ball to the other foot, or you can also drag the ball to the other foot, which is the one I prefer. The final move is the Ronaldo Chop. This is another great move primarily used by wide players to change directions quickly and to wrong-foot defenders.
You want to use this move when you are running at high speeds and a defender is tailing you. You quickly change directions, and they’re unable to decelerate in time to get the ball from you. OK, guys. So that will do it for this video. Again, these were not meant to be fancy moves, but I promise you that if you get good at these moves, they will come in handy in matches.
