Soccer Move: L-move from Shielding

Use an L-move when you’re shielding the ball.


When to do this move

You can do an L-move in many situations, but this video was specifically done so you can see why it makes sense to do an L-move when you are shielding the ball. It’s a great way to turn and change direction.

How to do the L-move from a shield

1. Execute a normal L-move by rolling the ball back, using the foot that is farthest away from the opponent, and then using the same foot to push the ball to the inside.
2. In this situation, it is VERY important to turn and accelerate quickly because the opponent is so close.
