607 0


While Lionel Messi doesn’t do any fancy step over moves like Cristiano Ronaldo, he does use his body to throw off defenders. Watch how he fakes like he’s going one way with a dip of his shoulder or a subtle body feint in one direction and then takes off in the other.

Yes, after watching the video below it’s clear that Messi is the best dribbler of the soccer ball in the world right now. And Messi is perhaps the best dribbler of the ball that’s every played the game. Not only does Messi keep the ball tethered to his foot with each step, he also uses his body to trick the defender.

Messi wants the defender to think he’s got him contained and is going to keeping going in the same direction, and that’s just when Messi escapes in the other direction.

Here’s an excllent explanation video behind Messi’s body feint moves. How Messi’s feints fool opponents and how Messi makes choices when he’s on the ball and ready to attack or beat a defender. How Messi makes defenders think he’s going to go one way and then he quickly is gone in the other direction. And this is a good message too for all young soccer players: “Dribble if it can help your soccer team, not to show off!”
