Awesome Soccer moves to try and beat your opponent

There’s nothing more satisfying than jukeing out your opponent.  It’s even better when it leads to a critical pass or goal.  Here are some killer moves to practice for your next game:

  • Hip Swivel— Fake with inside of one foot by swiveling hips toward ball, then reverse direction and take the ball with the inside of the other foot.
  • Matthews— Fake with inside of foot nudging ball by dipping shoulder, then take ball in the opposite direction with the outside of same foot. Then explode.
  • Cap — Cut ball with inside of foot slightly backward and take ball ahead with the inside of the opposite foot.
  • Step Over — With the ball moving, step over ball so it is outside of step over foot, turn and take the ball with the other foot.
  • Scissors over ball — Step behind ball as if preparing to take it with the outside of one foot, then step over the ball and take it with the outside of the other foot.
  • Rivelino— Same as step over, but take the ball with outside of step over foot.
  • Vee— Fake pass with instep across your body, pull ball back with sole and take in opposite direction with the inside of the same foot.
  • Cruyff — Fake kick with inside of foot, but instead pull ball behind the standing leg and change directions.
  • Inside of foot cut — Cut the ball across body with inside of foot while simultaneously stepping over it and take with outside of opposite foot.
  • 3/4 Inside of foot turn — Cut ball back with inside of foot, continue turning 3/4 of the way around and take the ball with the inside of the same foot.
  • 3/4 Outside of foot turn — Cut ball back with outside of foot, continue turning 3/4 of the way around and take the ball with the outside of the same foot.
  • Scissors behind ball – Here is an easy step to learn.  Step behind ball as if preparing to take it with outside of one foot, fake, then take it with the outside of the opposite foot.
  • Scissors in front of ball — Step behind ball as if preparing to take it with outside of one foot, then step around front of ball and take it with outside of the other foot.
  • Double Scissors — Push ball forward, make alternate scissors steps and take with outside of first foot. Only use this move when you have some distance between you and your opponent.
  • Reverse Matthews — Fake with outside of one foot, step behind and take with outside of opposite foot. This move is also called the body swerve or Touch ‘n go.
  • Stepover – Scissors – With the ball rolling, step over it, followed by scissors with same foot and take with outside of other foot.
  • Front Roll — While moving forward, pull ball across body with sole and take with outside of opposite foot.
