  3. Come into the ball.
  4. Control the ball with a gentle touch with the inside of the right foot.
  5. Close in on the ball and place the support foot (left) next to the ball.
  6. Step on the ball with the forefoot (right).
  7. Pull the ball backwards (straight) with the right foot.
  8. Turn the body 180┬░.
  9. Accelerate away, pass, shoot or perform a 1v1 move to pass the defender.

Things to watch out for:

  1. Don't stand rigid on the legs but flex the knees a bit.
  2. Reposition fast if needed to receive the ball straight.
  3. Step forward upon receiving. Timing is important.
  4. Touch the ball in the middle (do not let it drop dead or jump away).
  5. Pull the ball straight backwards or slightly to the passing foot (same side).
  6. Rotate the body in place where the pulling foot becomes the support foot. No extra step in between is required this way.
  7. Pull with one foot and pass with the other after the turn.
