Paul Riley walks you through one of the most famous turns in soccer. Named after the Dutch forward Johan Cruyff, the cruyff turn is a great way to get yourself--and the ball--away from any defender.
The stepover turn is used at every level of soccer from amatuer to professional. In this video, Paul Riley demonstrates how to use the turn correctly and how to accelerate out of it.
According to coach Paul Riley, a great forward needs a lot of attacking moves. The roll stepover is one of the more difficult moves to master, but once you have it down, you will confuse the defender every time.
The Roll and Scissor drill gets you into open space and away from your defenders as quickly as possible.
