BEAT THE MAN - Winning Dribbling Skills • Semi-Pro

In this drill, we're going to work on when an attacking player takes on an opponent in the attacking third. The player will receive the ball on their front foot and try to beat the defender with a skill move before progressing with the ball at their feet. It's important to beat your defender in a 1 vs 1 situation during the game. This will help create mismatches in numbers and give you an advantage when attacking. The ball is played into the feet. Approach the defender at a steady speed to help maintain control of the ball. Perform a simple skill move to beat the defender. Make a quick change direction and dribble with the ball with pace into space.
