So you want to learn how to dribble the soccer ball like Neymar? Well, it starts off with spending time with the ball on our own, mastering it. Dribbling in and out of cones with both feet and slowly building up your speed with the ball at your foot. Once you've mastered the ability to control the ball then you can start beating people and going by them. And it's all about change of pace, slow and then fast after you do a move.
When Neymar plays the game he dares you to try to steal the ball from him. And then when you stand your ground he'll sucker you into diving in for the ball and dribble right around you where another defender will foul him and earn a red card.
Can't wait until Neymar moves on to a bigger club in Europe to see if he can pull off these crazy moves in the English Premier League or La Liga. I think he can and will eventually dominate European soccer. Actually, it looks like he'll join Barcelona soon, which doesn't even seem fair since they already have Messi. Yeah, trying to learn how to play soccer like Neymar is a good thing to try to copy. Get to the practice field with your soccer ball and copy his moves.
But the highlights in the video above are all from before Neymar's days as a pro soccer player at Barcelona, where he arrived at 21 years of age.
Really, while Neymar was always a unique and special player, it was at Barcelona that he became a star, learning from the likes of Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, and Suarez. Perhaps my favorite Neymar move is when he flicks the ball up and over a defender.
