Soccer drill procedure

We couldn’t leave out this trick made famous by Franz Beckenbauer, der Kaiser. It’s difficult to come out of this drill at high speed (see animation). The ball is played with the sidefoot, making ball control significantly more difficult.


Play the ball around your opponent with your sidefoot.


- Always train using both legs!
- Practise with passive defenders
- Perform the trick many times in succession
