This Quick Turn is build on or can be practised with:

When starting with the right foot:
(Switch left and right below when starting with the left foot)
- Stay before the defender (defender in your back).
- Check your shoulder to be aware of the defender.
- Come into the ball.
- Receive the ball with the inside of the right foot.
- Immediately after the right foot touches the ground, perform a stepover with the left foot.
- At the same time:
- Turn to the left.
- Guide the ball with the inside of the right foot to bring it in front of the right foot.
- Pass or accelerate away from the defender.
Things to watch out for:
- Don't stand rigid on the legs but flex the knees a bit.
- Aim to touch the ball with the inside of the receiving foot about 50cm (1,5ft) in front of the support foot (by stepping into the ball).
- Avoid to let the ball drop dead or to let it jump away with too much momentum.
- Turn swiftly on the support foot.
- Get the ball in the right position for the next pass (by means of the touch after the turn). Avoid to get the ball under the body. This will make the next pass impossible or at least very awkward.
