best guide on this site keep up the good work jdefoe :D :D


Hey this is a great guide, but i have a question. Could someone please explain how to do the full sole roll? I'm not quite sure how to do it. The first time i actually saw this move was playing fifa street, lol. Any help would be much appreciated, thanx.
Click it

Inside Roll: Roll the ball across your body from outside to inside with the inside and sole of the foot and stop the ball with the inside of the other foot.

Outside Roll: Roll the ball across your body from inside to outside with the outside and sole of the foot and stop the ball with the inside of the same foot.

don't get it, could someone help me???
Heres a link to some vids of the moves for those who want it

Could someone please explain the following in more detail:

Side-to-Side Push-Pull (How do you tap the ball back and forth with the inside of feet?)
Side-to-Side Front Roll (How do you tap the ball back and forth with inside of feet, and how do you pull the ball across your body?)
Pull & Roll Behind (do you ever turn around or are you always facing just the one direction?)
Pull turn (I don't get this one)
Full Sole Roll (I don't understand the first half, and what is a step-on?)
360 (Is this really just two 180s?)
Kicks Over ball (How do you kick over the ball?)

I understand (I think) the rest. It would be awesome if someone could help me with the ones I listed. Thanks!
Does getting so many touches with the sole of the foot actually help in a game?
this is a really good guide. I am for sure going to try it. Give the man some props!

Dribbling: Solving 1v1 Attacking Situations

Warm-Up (10 minutes):

Run on spot or skip for 2-3 minutes
Juggle ball for 5 mins, aim for 100 successive, use both feet
200 touches of tennis ball (100 each foot)

Great post :D...But could you clarify a few things for me? could you please be more specific about the tennis ball thing...do you mean juggle, dribble, pass, or what?

and i can't juggle over 50 so i can't even do the warm-up. Should i get up my ball handling skills by juggling or should i do this to improve them?

One last thing can most of you juggle 100+ times in 5 mins or less?
