Scissors elastico – 1v1 Moves

Scissors elastico combined 1v1 move.

Individual Skills Library.

1. Setup two cones (or use t-shirts if you don’t have cones) to act as a defender or if you have a partner, they can act as the defender (they should be passive and not try to tackle you).

2. Give yourself some space (around 7 or 8 metres) and run at speed at the cones/defender.

3. As your approach the cones, perform a standard scissors (left foot goes from inside to outside around the ball) and then immediately with your right foot perform the elastico move (push the ball with the outside of your right foot and in the same movement bring it back the other way with the inside of your right foot) and move past the cones.

4. The key here is that the move looks like a standard scissors until you perform the elastico which takes you to the opposite side that the defender will be anticipating when he sees the initial scissors.

5. Once you have worked with left foot scissors and right foot elastico, switch to right foot scissors and left foot elastico. Finish off with alternately using both feet until you feel equally comfortable going past the cones on both sides.

6. Test yourself – go slower until you perfect the technique and then speed up as much as possible to make the move authentic and fool the defender. This is a tricky move and you will definitely make mistakes if you are pushing yourself. Enjoy the challenge of perfecting it!
