Few actions in football attract more applause and adulation than a flash of magic to beat a defender and no player on the planet is better at it than Barcelona’s diminutive menace Lionel Messi.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger likened Messi’s mesmeric skills to a ‘Playstation player’. While Messi is incredibly skillful on the ball, especially with his favored left foot, he’s also excellent at using his body to protect the ball from defenders.

Galustian designed this drill to help you master the basics with repetition. Introduce it to your training session and you’ll be buzzing through tackles just like a player on a computer game.
