DRAG BACK & TURN DRIBBLE - Winning Dribbling Skills

DRAG BACK & TURN DRIBBLE - Winning Dribbling Skills. Eric De Sousa, a former National Champion player, demonstrates two soccer drills to develop essential dribbling skills. These two dribbles are similar, both allowing for an unpredictable change in direction to create space away from a defender. However while they start the same, they end in taking the dribbler in opposite directions, making them a perfect complement to each other. If a player masters both they will be able to quickly create space away from their marker in either direction, making them very difficult to defend against. These dribbles are most effective when a player is already moving in one direction, and just as their defender starts to move with them they preform either move to quickly change direction and accelerate.
