Personally, I don't go for any of this tricking the attacker bollocks,
Its called outsmarting
When you are face with a 1v1 situation you have to outsmart them before they outsmart you
Obviously you don't go around feigning every attacking player
But you have to try to read the player's next move
This thread is dedicated to tricking/feigning the attacker
But theres alot more to defending than Just that part
I just take a slide, and get the man, the ball and anything else that happens to be in way.
The best defensive midfielders majority of tackles are standing up or interceptions
Only slide if theres no other option and you are almost certain you will get the ball
Because when you are on the floor you are out of the game
