The drag back is a great soccer skill to start your players with and can soon become part of a players game. Being able to change direction quickly and effortlessly puts huge confidence in your players and will enable them to turn away from danger and into space easily.
While you’re dribbling and at the moment you decide to change direction, place your planting foot near the side of the ball. Then place the foot you’re dragging back with on top of the ball. Make sure you place it in the center of the ball. If you place it too far to the front, back, left or right, you may not get a good grip on the ball.
Now drag the ball back in the opposite direction you were going and continue dribbling in that direction with speed to get away from your opponent.
