guys and girls in today's episode I'm

gonna show you five of the most basic

football skills that you can practice

and learn no matter how experienced you

are in the game of football now we have

all seen the pro footballers and people

on Instagram showing off some insane

football skills but before you can move

on to those you kind of have to learn

the basics first and hopefully these

five skills will get you started let's

go number one is the Kryten named after

the legendary Johan Cruyff this move is

all about changing direction when the

ball is rolling forward you start off by

first stepping in front of the ball with

your standing foot you then bring your

strong foot towards the ball and tap it

through your legs with the inside of the

foots and finish the move by sprinting

after the ball make sure to keep your

knees bent and use your upper body for

the turn to sell the effect even more


number two is unofficially called the

drag pack this is a great movie if

you're stuck in a tight situation with

the opponent right in front of your face

when the ball is in front of you you

start off quite dragging back with the

sole of your strong foot and as the ball

goes behind your standing foot you

simply tap it 90 degrees with the inside

of your strong foot and run after the

ball it's a really effective move that

can also be used for passing the ball to

your teammate


number three is the classic step over in

most cases this is the first 101 skill

that everybody ever learned and the

point of the step over is to make your

opponent think you're going one way

before suddenly changing direction the

move is really simple use your weak foot

to make a full circle around the ball

and just as you place your foot back on

the ground tap the ball to the opposite

direction with the outside of your

strong fields once again the key here is

to drop your shoulder and use your upper

body to make it look like you're heading

one way

before leaving your defender confused

number four is unofficially called the

roll and it really is one of the most

basic yet effective skills to have in

your locker this move works the best

when your defender tries to attack for

the ball and you simply roll it out of

his reach the rule of thumb here is that

if the ball is slightly on the right

side in front of you you want to roll

the ball with your right foot and vice

versa as you need to approach the ball

with the inside of your foot first again

it's not the flashiest feel in the world

but you'll be surprised of how many pro

players rely on this very basic skill


number five is the step over turn that

just like the Christ turn should be used

for changing direction when your

defender is breathing down your neck

start off by swinging your strong foot

over the ball before placing it firmly

on the ground in front of the ball you

then use the same foots to tap the ball

to the opposite direction with the

outside of your foots needless to say

it's absolutely crucial to bend your

knees and use your upper body as a way

of giving even more effects for the

skill the step over turn looks cool

it's super basic and you might just

break some ankles with it if you perform

it correctly have fun practicing
