OK, so you may not have talent or hair like Cristiano Ronaldo, but you can use his signature move.
Whether you’re playing Champions League or rec league, the Ronaldo Chop maneuver is a sly and incredibly effective way to change direction while running at top speed.
It starts with a bit of a hop with your plant foot. Then it’s a chop of the outside of the ball with your dribbling foot, in the opposite direction. The idea is to slice the ball slightly backward and to the side, and then cut away from the defender, who’ll likely be faked out. Channel your inner Ronaldo – abs not included.
