Soccer Move: Self Meg

Some moves don’t require touching the ball at all! Just let it go through.


When to do this move

You should only do this when you are receiving a medium-paced pass and you have a defender approaching you from behind or from the side. It’s also advisable to move towards the ball to make it more obvious that you are planning on controlling it.

How to do the Self Meg Move

1. If the defender is pressuring you, you can either shield and then let the ball pass and quickly turn.

2. If you and the opponent are running towards the ball, make sure that the defender is close behind you so you can maximize the advantage.
