Football Drill Demonstration


The flip flap or elastico is a simple trick that skilled players can use to beat a defender in a 1 v 1 scenario. 

This drill uses 3/4 cones to simulate a defender.

The player dribbles the ball forward then faints flicking it to the right whilst actually dragging it left in one rapid, fluid motion.

Coaching points

Get the player to run at the cones at speed with their head up. 

The trick is to get the player to drop their shoulder to emphasive the faint to send the defender the wrong way.
