How to Do a Cruyff Turn

Inspired by Johan Cruyff, use this move to shake a defender


| 1 min watch

Dutch superstar Johan Cruyff first used this move in the early ‘70s, but this oldie is still a goodie. A combination of a fake and a turn, this sly move can help a player turn away from a defender or reverse direction quickly.

To do it: The plant foot goes slightly forward, while the other foot taps the ball in the other direction — behind the standing leg. You can tap sideways or back — the point is to change direction quickly and throw off a defender.
