Berbatov Scoop Turn

Is there a smoother soccer player that Dimitar Berbatov? Watch Berbatov pull off an incredible spin move and then slip the ball through to Cristiano Ronaldo to score for Manchester United. Not sure who the defender is for West Ham United but I feel bad for him. Berbatov isn’t too fast either, so to beat him to the soccer ball is something. What do you call this move? The Berbaspin? Many say that this scoop turn or spin move is used all the time in the FIFA soccer video game. I can see why, it’s just a genius and very skillful move. There’s a time and place to do the unexpected on the soccer field and Berbatov does that brilliantly.

Here’s an excellent demonstration of how to do the Berbatov scoop turn. Picture yourself doing this Berbatov spin move in a game. Picture yourself pulling off this move and making a pass to an open teammate. Picture yourself playing at the Theatre of Dreams.
