If you are only just starting to play soccer, you will want to read this article carefully as it contains important tips for dribbling in soccer. Dribbling is one of the most important skills a soccer player can possess, because without it, you will have very little chance of reaching the top of the game. Learning this skill the right way is vital and this article provides tips as to how to do this.
1. Always try to do every part of your foot, both the inside and the outside of your foot, when you dribble. You must be able to interchange between all parts of your foot if you wish to be a good dribbler and a good soccer player.
2. When you dribble the ball, always try to keep it less than 1.5 metres away from you at all times. It is important to do this, because often in soccer, you will find yourself closed in by opposition players and will need to get out of these with the ball.
3. Once you are able to dribble constantly with both sides of your foot as well as keep the ball close to you, then you can start to practice feinting in order to trick the opposition. If you’re not sure what this is, have a look at how Cristiano Ronaldo dribbles and you will see how he often steps over the ball in order to get past defenders. He’s also one of the best dribblers in the game so he would be a good role model to follow for dribblers.
My only hope is that you find these soccer dribbling tips very helpful in your quest to be a good player of the world’s most popular game.
