Someone who isn't confident will never be a good dribbler. You have to want the ball, desire the ball. When you get the ball, your goal shouldn't be not to mess up, your thought is "What can I do to help my team"? Passing the ball every time will never do this. When you get the ball your first thought should never be to pass.
Sure, passing is vital in football, but taking a man on and beating him gives you more time and space to pick out a telling pass or a great shooting opportunity, so that you stand a better chance at the goal.
To be composed in dribbling and passing, you just gotta relax, and think about what's best for the team next. If your team is down a goal you need to pick the pass or move that will lead to a goal scoring opportunity. If you're up, then you need to pick out passes that are lower risk but that will keep possession on your team's behalf. You must think about what to do ahead of time so you don't panic when the time comes.
This keeps happening to me. :sigh:Lehuynhduc said:Actually, the first thing he wants to do when receiving the ball is to pass. He's a defender.
