now do you just mean wide open beating him and going to goal? cuz there are a whole lot of different kinds of dribbling that are often much more effective. just get fast. i mean that's really no excuse to not being able to beat him. trust me just get fast by doing suicides and stuff. but you have to give it your all everytime you turn. also look into plyometrics that'll really improve your first step quickness. hope this helps

i know this probabably isn't what you want to hear from me but it's true. to become great you can't just skip out on one aspect such as speed and quickness. a few years ago i was at the same level or so as everyone my age but i just had more skill. lately i've been working on becoming a better athlete: faster, quicker, jump higher. it has put me ahead of the competition and it makes your entire game improve. i've been doing a ton of plyos and core training, it's amazing what it can do to your athletic ability and your game. hope this helps.

Also, wait until you are a bit closer to the defender but far enough that he cant kick the ball away from you. Then do your feints, he wont have as much time to recover.

a good rule, in general, is to go to their supporting side. see which foot their weight is put on, and push the ball past them that way. it throws them off balance more often than not, and it gives you more time than any feint or move can. speed isn't everything. it's not the amount you have, it's how you use it. 99% of the time, changes in speed are more effective than just blowing past someone. you should approach the defender at a slow run, then accelerate past their supporting foot. i'm no expert in dribbling, so anyone correct me if i said anything wrong. i just answered this one because dribbling is one of my stronger points.

that's where experience comes in. the feints go directly with this. if you can get him to stab at the ball, that would make shift his weight to his opposite foot. so you can cut that way. the best way to be able to see which foot is supporting is just to practice. i know how annoying it is to be told that, but just keep watching his feet. a good indicator is whichever one is directly below his body. if one is off to a side, go towards the opposite one. if he lifts one up, go to the foot that's on the ground

what i meant was to use the feints to throw him off balance. don't try to meg him all the time, just make him stab at the ball. if you can get the defender to commit to tackling, you should be able to dribble past with little problem

yeah, the best thing is to go out and try it. oh and when i said "commit to a tackle" i didn't mean sliding necessarily. i mean when he puts his feet far enough apart that he can't distribute the weight evenly. i hope my comments have helped, a little at least
