Run into them, seriously, if they kick the ball past you just run infront of them and block the path.

that's one way to do it. Or you need to learn how to give a player space without opening up the field to them. Show them towards the line by staying inside of them and back a few yards it forces them down the line. you can close them down slowly from there.

Exactly this ^. Jockey side on when you do this, in a boxers stance, facing your hips down the line, and stay inside of him. You dictate the play, not him. Don't let him come inside because he's speed will just burn you, he's less of a direct threat down the line.

Everything you need, is already inside.
