1 Learn to dribble with every part of your foot.

Practice dribbling over a 30-yard area, varying your speed and the part of your foot you use to move the ball. Make sure the ball feels like a natural extension of your foot, stopping, moving, and changing direction at will. Some ways to practice this are:

* Obstacle races: place cones or small objects in a zigzag and then dribble through them with the highest controlled speed you can. Your goal is to pass all the cones without hitting or missing any. As you get better, increase your speed.

* Juggling: Although this is not used directly in real football, better juggling will improve your “touch” and overall comfort with the ball. Juggling is simply using your entire body (minus your arms and hands) to keep the ball in the air for as long as possible. Start by trying 10 touches in a row, then increase to 20, 50, and 100.

2. Raise your head when dribbling.

This requires very good foot skills, but you should start working on them as soon as possible. Advanced soccer players intuitively know where the ball is on their feet most of the time, allowing them to look up and find the next pass or shot opportunity. Although you will always look down occasionally, the more you can keep your head up, the better.

* Practice lifting your head with each dribbling exercise you do, especially in practice.

3 Work on exercises to manipulate the ball.

These simple and quick exercises are a great way to work on your foot skills, even if you would never perform the movement itself in a match. For all of these exercises, start moving your feet as fast as possible while staying in control.

* Bounce the ball between your legs as if you were quickly passing it from the inside of your right foot to the inside of your left foot. Work on using small motions to “slice” the ball from one side to the other.

* Perform toe taps leaving the ball in front of you and alternating touching it on the top with the bottom of your foot. To get faster, try landing on the balls of your feet each time and keep your knees slightly bent.

* Place the ball between your legs. Roll the bottom of your right foot over the top of the ball, bringing it to the right. Once you have rolled the ball, bring your right foot back to the center, passing the ball to your left foot and repeating the procedure. You can also do it in reverse, rolling the ball inward, pushing it to the right with the outside of your foot, and then cutting it back toward the center. This exercise, while advanced, is a great way to practice total control.

4 Practice passing in an instant.

The best players know that soccer is a team sport. If you dribble too long, the ball will be taken away from you every time. Therefore, you have to spend the same amount of time practicing your passes as practicing your individual foot skills. You need to be able to make quick passes with one touch (not stop the ball as it rolls towards you), and be able to set up and throw a good cross pass in just two touches.

* Throw against a wall for quick and easy passing practice. The worse you pass, the more difficult it will be to get the ball back and hit a return shot.

* Ask a friend, usually a forward, to work with you on cross passes. Stand in a corner and ask your friend to point out where your passes go. Ask him to start running and then pass towards him so that he doesn't have to interrupt his stride to catch the ball.

* Think about your weak areas and commit yourself each week to improving them. For example, if you want to work on your shots, choose 2-3 days a week to hit the field and shoot for an hour. Once you feel good, use the same time to work on dribbling or crossing passes or some other advanced skill that you need to practice.

5 Perfect some advanced moves.

Warm up by spending time with the ball by yourself. Haggle much faster with precision. Keep your head slightly raised as you dribble the ball so that you can see the field. Here are some popular moves you should learn:

* The flip flap, the snake, or the Ronaldinho

* Move the ball out with the outside of your foot, then quickly flip it over with the inside of your foot.

* Your foot will wrap around the ball, pushing it away from you and then back, fooling the defender.

* Stop and start

* Jog slowly with the ball.

* Stop for a moment, placing the bottom of your foot on the ball.

* Then roll the ball forward and to the defender's side, then make a big hit and run away, passing the immobilized player.

* The scissors

* Bring your foot to the top of the ball, pretending to push or pass it.

* Once your foot is on the ball, bring it back, catching the ball on the way and going in the opposite direction you pretended.

* You can do it with the inside or outside of your foot.

6 Follow a training program.

This should be a ritual and not something you choose to do on certain days or hours. Training with a soccer ball 3-4 times a week will definitely improve your skill. Volley against a wall or practice shooting with both feet on a trampoline or goal, if you have one. Practice foot skills and juggling skills. Juggling will help you control the ball. You should do it with both feet so that you are comfortable with both. You should also shoot and volley with both feet.

* Many coaches recommend spending 30 minutes or more on your skills every day.
