Facing your opponent with the ball, position your body to feign a cross or shot. Then drag the ball with your foot begint your standing leg. Turn away in the other direction.


"I do not understand how he did it. It was a fantastic sequence. I thought I was going to take the ball. I still cannot understand. Now when I see the video, every time I think I have got the ball. When he is about to kick the ball I am sure I am going tot take it, but every time he surprises me. I loved everything about that moment. My team mates after the game, we looked at each other, they started to laugh and I do the same. We laughed to each other in the changing room because everyone saw what a player he was. What more could we do?"
