Thanks for checking out this Epic Soccer Moves To Beat A Defender Review

Hey guys. This is Matt again from Epic Soccer Training. I kind of want to take you through basically
one of the things that I enjoy the most which is soccer moves and kind of teach you the
ins and outs of how to make them better. I think most people especially in practice,
they're not really taught to utilize moves as well because they're just taught to just
do the move and that's it but really when you think of soccer moves, you have to think
of in terms – it's kind of like acting because you're selling a move. You're selling what's called feinting which
is moving one way and then exploding the other way. So, one of the first moves that I kind of
want to teach you is basically a beginner move. I want to explain one that's kind of a beginner,
one that's an intermediate and then one that's more of an advanced, intermediate-advanced
I guess. So, the first one is basic inside-outside
cuts. So again a cut is just a simple touch across
the body and you want to be working on both feet. Having great coaches growing up, I was blessed
to have to work on my right foot as well even though I'm a lefty and many of you are probably
righties. So again, you want to be able to work on both
legs as well. So one of the first ones is just going to
be – let's just work on the inside cut and so where you're kind of going across the body
and it's a quick chop. A lot of people call it chops as well. So again, you're not kind of – this is one
of those moves you don't need to sell as much because you don't want it to look like you're
coming across the body. You just kind of want to be up and then cut
real quick and then again you just work your way down the field doing that and then also
when you're doing these cuts, then start working your way to doing outside chops as well and
the outside chop is the same thing. It's just turning and again you want to have
kind of this 90-degree angle. So if you're going this way, just cut it quick
across his body and it's done so quickly where the defender doesn't really have time to jump
out forward or if they do, you already passed a move because it doesn't take a whole lot
of time before you're just doing a quick cut. So again, work on that one and also work on
kind of game speed. You're turning real quick and you're exploding
out of it. It's giving you space from the defender. So the next move I want to take you on is
called the Cruyff which was coined by Johan Cruyff of the Netherlands who was actually
voted – he played from the 60s to the 80s but he was voted European Player of the Century
and I think it was 1999 but he has this move and it's basically a fake shot and it gets
you open. So you can use this a lot of times in the
midfield as well. I mean really anybody can use it but I played
mainly like center mid offense attacking players so I use this move all the time and especially
if you want to get the ball to your dominant foot. So basically the Cruyff is a fake shot so
what you do is you plant your foot – just like you're shooting but you plant it ahead
of the ball so again so you can see it this way. If the goal is over here and I'm looking to
take a shot, you're planting ahead and then rolling the ball behind your leg and really
you're just rolling the ball with just the very – pretty much your toes, just the ball
of your foot and you're doing it really quick and then touch it out or you can kick it harder
and be open for a shot. But again if you're doing it from the right
side as well – I will go here. You're planting ahead and you're just lightly
touching the ball behind your leg and then you're going and you can take another shot
which is something that's really great to get open as well. So again really work on that one and really
work on selling it. Get your arms involved and really look like
you're taking a shot because ultimately what you want to do with this move as opposed to
the chop is you want to get the defender to jump because when he's jumping this far, he's
going to have to shift his whole body weight, take a couple of steps before he can reach
out again and again, you can actually kind of toy around with defenders too because you
can fake a shot. He'll run and then kind of wait and then fake
another one as well and he's flying all over the place and you look a lot better. So again, do that one. That's the Cruyff so really work on that one. Again, it's just a simple plant. Touch the ball behind the leg. Touch it out and that's when you can take
your next shot or drive a long ball across the field to your open player or something
like that. The next move is kind of – it's a stacked
move and a stacked move is kind of where you build a couple of moves on each other. It's more of an intermediate-advanced move. You're learning a lot of these. Like scissors is one of the best moves that
you can do because it's pretty simple. It looks cool. It's where you just step over the ball and
touch it with your opposite foot. So again, here, I will show you this one as
well but you're going. You're stepping over, over the top of the
ball. You're planting your foot so that you can
take the ball away and again, you can stack this one as well and you can make it go pretty
quick. You can do a double scissors, a triple scissors. If you see a lot of Brazilian players, that's
something they do and then they explode out of that. One of the ones that I actually really like
is not doing scissors over and over again. I like players that have to just make a decision
to go one way or the other. So what I like doing is I like going and then
I cut behind the ball. So it looks like I'm doing a scissors because
most people are actually used to that. So you go around the ball and then it's just
a fake behind so looks like you're going like this. Again, fake and then you take it with the
same foot you started the scissors with. So I will kind of show you this again, if
I'm going this way, and again, it works really, really quickly but it gets defenders on their
heels especially when they're trying to figure out where you're going and you're going at
them pretty fast. So work on that one again. I will show you sideways. The ball is going this way. I would take my foot around, left foot around
and then I would just fake and plant with my other foot and then just take it with my
left and again, if I was going this way, for the right-footed people, it's like that and
then I take it around and again, if you're moving forward, you're not going to go straight
sideways. You're going to go more diagonal and get around
the defender really quickly. So again, that's like a single scissors, like
stacked move that I want you to work on as well. Again work on both feet because that's important
and you want to be able to have your left foot as good as your right and your right
foot as good as your left. So again, you can watch a video below as well

  1. This stuff is super easy yet effective. Those are the best kind of moves.
    I like the way he teaches it too. And doesn't tell you to just use whichever foot you're comfortable with.
