Step-over dribble

Learn to emulate one of Dutch winger Arjen Robben's top skills.

Ideal in one-on-ones, the step-over can keep the defender guessing until the final moment. With your standing foot behind the ball go to kick with the outside of the boot, but instead lift it over and across the ball and then kick it in the opposite direction with your other foot. The Netherlands' Arjen Robben is one of the best exponents of the trick in the game.
