Change of Direction

When a player isn't able to pass the ball to a teammate and the opponent is coming on to you from the side or is running side by side with you, then a sudden change of direction could give you just enough time and space to get in a better position to pass the ball or dive in an open zone.

Remember, keeping ball possession is a priority.

    When a defender is too eager while coming in from the side, it is easy to outsmart him by crossing in the same direction where he came from.
