Soccer Move: Behind the back Roll and Cut

Use your body to protect the ball with this behind-the-back move.

 

When to do this move

You can do this move when you are dribbling towards a player that is in front of you. It’s risky so I wouldn’t recommend trying to pull this off if you’re a defender, but if you practice it and become confident, it would be fine to use if you’re a midfielder or a forward.

How to do the Behind-the-back roll and cut

1. Roll the ball to the side and as you step forward with your opposite foot you cut the ball when you land.

2. You may need to lift the leg forward (the one that did the first roll) to make sure the ball doesn’t hit it during the cut.
