Well, they must've seen someone else do it, like in street football or w/e.

I learn tricks off mates all the time, well actually its usually them learning from me ;)

BTW, Robinho has like... 2 tricks. Flip/Flap and Stepover, neither that impressive to be fair.

if you're asking about how they do the tricks so well, well they do a thing called practice ;)

they have a lot of idle time during practice where they just work on their ground moves. they also work on them during practice scrimmages.

i think they just found something that worked while they where practiing/playing and then developed the movements into refined forms. like a fake kick that cryuff turns into the cryuff turn or pulling the ball back and turning to shield it becoming a roulette. of course i have no idea if thats true but it seems likely considering there are moves that even i have done while playing that arent practiced tricks but on the fly.

It's obviously just practice like any other move. Constant repetition of a move until they perfect it. It didn't happen in 1 day, I guarantee that. But I also know that they didn't train all day just to get that 1 move down, although they might have incorporated it into their day of playing as much as they can until after time they perfected it. People always think there's some secret training routine to do things, almost like looking for a shortcut. Soccer is a simple sport, it's practice that will get you there. Repetition is how your body learns, so go do it. There's also something called creativity which these players have, they don't need to see it on a computer to go "holy crap this could work if I learn it!"

i must've read the original post wrong cuz i thot u ment how do players create these moves. but i guess u meant how do they learn pre-existing moves? in which case i agree with what most of the ppl already said which is its pure practice. the take the time to work on moves till they get them down and then continue practicing so the skill doesnt erode over time

i'm taking it that you live in north america

in europe, south america and parts of asia there is a lot of football games, matches televised on tv

there are a lot of pick up games where kids learn from older players

there are also a lot of vhs videos on star players.....from maradona, shuster, muller, ...etc. For example, Zidane when he was young manged to buy a video of maradona training (a famous video made in italy)...so it showed a lot of his skills........which zidane tries to practice. Convinient stores in europe for example sell a lot of soccer videos, posters, magazines...etc.

I think that some tricks were made up on accident. Like the flip-flap. Someone probably hit the ball with the outside of their foot and then stepped really fast and hit the ball the other way which burnt the defender and then they thought "hey that worked, im gonna use it again"
