3 Killer Moves to Dazzle Opponents as a Winger

3 Killer Moves to Dazzle Opponents as a Winger

The winger is one of the most exciting players on the soccer pitch, making dangerous runs upfield, bamboozling defenders to make crosses and passes into the box, and basically running amok leaving defenders scrambling. Here are three brilliant skills you could master to become an unstoppable attack force within your college soccer team:

Stepovers and cutbacks
The classic stepover, correctly executed, completely wrong-foots defenders tracking you, leaving you clear to run forward to advance the attack. A cutback with your heel to switch the ball quickly behind you to the other side as you run is especially effective along the wing when you want to drive into the middle of the pitch.

The croqueta or Laudrup dribble
This is a really nifty skill to have when you're running with the ball directly at defenders, switching the ball quickly from one foot to the other along with your stride. It has an especially higher chance of success along the wing if you choose to switch the ball towards the touchline, where tackling is difficult.

Feinting
Feinting seems simplistic, but requires great finesse and smoothness of movement to be able to fool the defender, which can only come with continuous practice and polishing. If perfected, however, it can prove to be extremely effective, wrong-footing the other player and giving you precious additional moments to charge forward, cross or shoot. 

A skillful winger can be a total handful for defenders and a nightmare to deal with through the match. Learning skills such as the ones described here will make your runs much more potent, and increase your chances of crossing or shooting successfully.
