Each soccer team has two or three play makers. These players are more talented than others and always get the ball since they are able to go past the other team's defense. They will then score or pass the ball to a player who is ready to score. You can become one of these players if you practice.

 

Remember that you have a role on the team, whether you are a natural play maker or not. Some people simply make things happen on the field. If you do not have that talent, you can act as a support to those that have different skills than you do. Figure out what your role is and play to your strengths.

 

Adopt an energetic attitude when you play. You should spend the entire game following the ball back and forth and always trying to be in an ideal spot to receive the ball. Do not give up if players do not pass the ball to you and draw their attention if you are in a good position.

 

If you are facing a defender, try getting past them instead of simply holding the ball. You can hold the ball for a while by shielding it with your body and passing it from one foot to the other but you will eventually have to attack and get past the defender.

If your team is struggling to do this, watch footage of professional soccer teams. It should give you an idea of what you need to be doing.

 

Surprise can be a great help when you play soccer. Try to dribble towards you right hand while pushing a pass to your left. The defender won't know what to do next. Although these moves may initially surprise your teammates, they will eventually get used to this style.

 

Practice soccer with those who are more experienced. You will improve your skills by stretching your abilities. Don't be shy about asking good players for tips and assistance. Soccer players enjoy helping each other since they are team-oriented people. A good way to find experienced players is by attending local games and ask some of them if they could mentor you.
