Alternative name(s): None. There is only one Cruyff Turn.
The Aim: To make your opponent think you're just shielding the ball and laying it off, before turning 180 degrees back past him.
The Basics: Unless you've been living on a desert island for the past 40 years, you'll know this move is named after the great Dutch footballer Johann Cruyff, who perfected the move back in the 1970's. It's been the staple diet of wannabee wing wizards in playgrounds and parks around the world ever since. With your back to an opponent, shielding the ball, you pretend to pass the ball away before flicking the ball back with the inside of your foot and turning 180 degrees to take the ball passed him.
Don't Forget: ...To really feint a decent passing move before you do the turn. You want your opponent to think the ball is going to travel away from you before you turn it in the completely opposite direction.
Difficulty Rating: 3/5 (a really smooth, slick Cruyff turn is harder than you think. Many footballers can do one but not many can do it well enough to actually fool their opponent).
The following steps on how to perform a Cruyff Turn are for doing it with your right foot.
