Full Preki: This move begins very much the same as above, but after the drag roll to the left, add a "step-over" (a Rivelino-like move) with the left foot - then as the ball continues to the left take it away with the outside of the left foot.

vivo Girls Sports - The Zico Soccer Move
Arthur Antunes Coimbra (born 3 March 1953 in Rio de Janeiro), better known as Zico), is a Brazilian coach and former footballer, who played as an attacking midfielder. He was a creative playmaker, with excellent technical skills, vision, and an eye for goal, who is considered one of the most clinical finishers and best passers ever, as well as one of the greatest players of all time. Arguably the world's best player of the late 1970s and early 80s, he is regarded as one of the best playmakers and free kick specialists in history, able to bend the ball in all directions. In 1999, Zico came eighth in the FIFA Player of the Century grand jury vote, and in 2004 was named in the FIFA 100 list of the world's greatest living players. According to Pelé, considered one of the best players ever, "throughout the years, the one player that came closest to me was Zico".

It's like teaching your child to learn the alphabet, words, vocabulary and simple sentence structure before expecting them to read a book on their own. BALL MASTERY plays a crucial role in laying down the FOUNDATION upon which the entire game is taught and learnt.”
