Running With Ball At Speed

Running at speed is a valuable skill to use in wide areas of the field before crossing the ball. it will allow you to move fast past a defender, while maintaining possession and setting up a potential scoring opportunity. To execute, you'll keep your toes slightly down and pointed inwards as you touch the ball. We'll show you here how to ensure you move the ball at the right speed so that you're not chasing it down the pitch but, rather, controlling its momentum to keep pace with your running speed.
