Lionel Messi’s Change of Pace

What is the secret to beating players on the dribble? Change of pace. To beat a player on the dribble one doesn’t have to necessarily be super fast, it’s all about going slow and then fast after you do a move or to get by a defender.


If you watch Messi play soccer one thing you’ll notice is his amazing change of pace. One minute he’s walking, the next he’s sprinting with the soccer ball at his feet. And that’s the secret to being a great dribbler and how to beat defenders – slow and then fast, a change of pace.

The trick is to lull them to sleep, to stop, to go slowly, and then to burst past them at speed. There’s no better soccer player in the world at this. And there’s no other player who uses his change of pace better than Lionel Messi.
