Dribbling refers to the skill used when a player through short and skillful taps or kicks maneuvers the ball around a defender. Dribbling is a highly efficient attacking move and one of the most difficult to master, as it requires a high level of technique, balance, and ball control. >
When used properly dribbling opens up space and may wreck havoc to the defending side. A good dribbler is hard to dispossess and the defending team may be forced to reckless tackles that result in yellow cards and dangerous free kick. On the other side, if dribbling is not carried out properly it will result in loss of possession.
