How to do an Advanced Turn on a Defender

Key Points:

1. As the ball gets to you, angle your foot down at a 45 degree angle and to the outside. 

2. Touch the inside back part of the ball, ever so slightly with the outside of your foot near the base of your toes. This will be the upper third part of your foot. It's more of a push, then a kick.

3. The ball should appear like you are taking a touch to the outside. This causes the defender to step in and try to win it going to your outside.

4. Quickly bring your foot to the outside of the ball and use the inside of your foot in a Cruyff like fashion to push the ball inside. Push, don't kick it. 

5. Your push of the ball inside should be a few steps ahead of you so you can accelerate quickly away from the defender and get your shot or pass off. 

6. Do this when the defender is a step or two behind you. This way they are not to close to you and can see the ball going to the outside which is your fake direction. If a defender is to close to you, they may not see the fake so even if you do the best turn ever they may not fall for it because they don't even see it. 


Equipment Needed: 

You will need a partner and a ball. If you don't have a partner you can use a wall or a fence. 


Exercise Player Can Do: 

An exercise we can do to practice. Start off practicing this move in a slow motion fashion from a stand still. Do this a few times to get a feel for it.

Once comfortable have your partner slowly pass you the ball from 10 yards away. As the ball comes to you do your turn and dribble a few steps. Then pass it back and repeat. Do this 10 times and switch with your partner. 

As you start to improve increase the speed at which the ball is passed to you and continue the reps cycle. Word of advice, if the ball is drilled at you in a game that is probably not the right pass to do this advanced turn. So don't think you need to be able to do this move with a ball being passed at you 100 mph!

To challenge yourself, check your shoulder prior to receiving the ball so you can see where the defender is and if the situation you are in allows you to do this type of move. 

If you have a goal, then include it in your exercise by adding a shot after you turn instead of just dribbling a few steps. 

For those of you without a partner. Pass your ball off the wall and then as it comes back to you do your advanced turn. Do 10 reps, rest and then repeat until you master it. 


What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: 

If the defender is always winning it then the defender is to close to you when you try this move. You could also be taking your touch inside directly at the defender instead of to the side. 


Bonus Tip!

Be confident when you do this move and don't over think it. If you practice enough and get real comfortable with this move you won't even think on the field. You will just do it when the time is right and you are in your attacking third.
