Tip Touch Behind(Tip Chop) Tip Touch Take (Laudrup / La Croqueta var.) - Feints and Fakes - 1v1 Moves for U12-U13
This 1v1 move can be useful for wingers closing in on the defender near the sidelines.
By performing the Tip Touch Behind / Tip Chop (Crossing - Change of Direction - 1v1 Soccer Moves for U10-U11), the attacker gives the impression to move into open space towards the centre, which the defender would like to shield.
When the defender is too eager to step in with a foot, then the attacker performs the second part of the move by performing the Tip Touch Take / Laudrup / La Croqueta var. (Feints and Fakes - 1v1 Soccer Moves for U8-U9) to pass the defender along the sidelines.
Even though this move is not usable in many situations, the important fact to remember is the usefulness of the second part (Tip Touch Take / Laudrup / La Croqueta var.) which can be coupled to many 1v1 moves and can be used in any situation to circumvent the defender who is too eager to step in.
Practise this 1v1 move along with this drill: Tip Touch Behind (Tip Chop) Tip Touch Take (Laudrup / La Croqueta var.) (Dynamic Ball Mastery Drills for U12-U13) which builds on the Inside Touch Take Stop / Laudrup Stop (Dynamic Ball Mastery Drills for U8-U9) and Tip Touch Behind / Tip Chop (Dynamic Ball Mastery Drills for U10-U11).
When starting with the right foot:
(Switch left and right below when starting with the left foot)
- Dribble with the right foot towards the defender.
- At the same time:
- Jump on the support foot (left) to move it in front of the ball and to let the ball pass behind the left foot.
- Pull the ball behind the left foot with by means of a turning motion of the tip of the right foot.
- As soon as the ball passes the support foot (along the left foot):
- Pull the ball to the right foot by means of a twisting move of the tip of the left foot.
- Take the ball with the inside of the right foot to pass the extended leg of the defender.
- Accelerate away.
Things to watch out for:
- Start the move early as to keep the ball out of the foot of the defender.
- Don't pull (behind) too wide because it makes the second part more difficult.
- Timing is important. This move is more effective when the defender extends his leg.
- Push/slide/drag the ball wide enough to be able to get around the extended leg of the defender.
