Well, I usually just air hocus pocus around defenders then run around them and flick it up for a bicycle kick. Otherwise I just make full-field goals when I get tired.

Whatever, I'm so good I don't need to do moves. I just look at defenders and they are faked out. Then I score from right-sided corners with the outside of my right foot...
God damn brewery!!!

I just stand in the center circle and direct the ball into the net after I have made it deke out each one of their players so they break their ankles then I put it in the net. Then they have to abandon the match because no one can play anymore.

i always do shoulder drops and lunges in games.i use step overs alot and elastico some times hocus pocus but thts only because i practise them every minute of every hour of every day so i feel confident doing them.the best way too drible is going back to basics and using ur brain,creativity and normal shoulder drops and lunges.watch george best videos and you'll see what imean.

Stepovers, rainbow kicks, nutmegs, pullbacks, just typical stuff like that, sometimes if im playing at recess for jokes ill just turn my back on the defender and hold the ball under my foot, that way when he goes for the ball i can back heel nutmeg him

I'm a defender so passing is my game, but fakes and single step overs are really useful in high pressure situations. When dribbling I usually just swap the ball to the other foot and run around, or get the defender off balance. Simple stuff. I also love doing feints and lunges in different directions as well as kicking the ball behind me which is a really useful way of cutting past people. Also, letting the defender see the ball then dodging when they lunge in can be effective against less skilled opponents.

My favourite move (which I only do indoors) is when I'm dribbling (and I can do this going quite fast) and in one motion I flick the ball from behind me, over mine and the defenders head. When I do it properly (40%) it gets 'em every time.
