A lot of football players is totally fanatic with dribbling skills and think that becoming a dribble king means that you are the hero of the team. This is totally wrong. If you noticed, most of freestyle moves are really cool but are they effictive to use in the game? I don’t think so.
So, below are two reasons that you should know when to use your dribble skills in a match.
Can’t pass to your teammates
If you are fighting with strong team, there is a possibility that most of your teammates is marked by them. In order to find other mates that is not marked, you need to dribble and control the possession of the ball. The best way is by dribbling or take the ball far from you. Remember, your objective is not to pass your opponent but to find your mates and pass the ball to them. This is the safest play of all.
You are a striker
If you are a striker, then you really need to practice dribble. Oftenly, striker will need to the opposing defender one on one or maybe two on one. You can pass back the ball to other members but this will give more time to other opposing players to defend. My advice is that you should at least at three dribble tricks to outrun the defender. If you only have one skill, your opponent is most likely to read your play.
Why dribble based team is bad?
Other than that, I don’t think there is a need to dribble around the field because you can always make things easier by doing one two with your teammates. Yes, being a dribble expert can make you a shining as a star, but remember that football is played by a team. You will enjoy when you can dribble pass your opponents, but how do the rest of your members feel? Will they enjoying it? A person will be enjoy if they receive ball. In order to make sure that everbody in a team enjoy the game, the team need to do a lot of pass. Besides having fun, making pass also is the best way for safe-play.
