How to steal the ball

  • The first thing that a defender of a football team should do when he is encounter an opponent with the ball at his feet is stalling, that one should never throw the ball recklessly because doing so makes it easier to dribble the opponent, but rather you have to stand in front of attacker waiting for the best time to steal the ball, it is also important that you should always try to watch the movements of the ball and not those of the opponent’s legs, to avoid fall in some of his pretended to dribbling.


  • Important for a defender is also the position of the body relative to the opponent, in fact if we were in a meeting attacker front, wasting time in turning the body to chase the enemy if he moved the ball sideways, which is why we must face an opponent putting in a lateral position, so be ready to chase the opponent.

  • To use this technique should also know that you know that your opponent uses more the left foot, trying to force the opponent to use the foot that uses less for so a greater chance that the wrong ball control. Man and one that is closest to the door lift however, must try to push the attacker towards the outside of the field and not towards the central zone so as to move it away from port; to do this we must put between the opponent and the door.

  • of course a defender must try to stop the attacking opponent removing them from the ball directly and not trying to knock him down, not only because if everything is seen by the referee will be assigned foul against, but mainly because it is unsportsmanlike. So in trying to stop the opponent always try to just take the ball and avoid hitting the opponent.
