“After school, I just wanted to play football. All around me, there were people who did bad things, but I never wanted to deal with them,” Sancho said.
If you want to dribble like Sancho then a simple thing you can do is dribble through a set of cones. Start out slow at first and then build up speed. Vary the distance of the cones, bring them closer together as you improve your control.
This might seem like a silly drill or too easy, but you can challenge yourself by just using one foot and picking up speed as you gain more confidence and touch on the ball. And again, the key to beating a defender on the dribble is change of pace, suckering in the defender and then blowing past them – slow and then fast.
