- To score a goal, the ball has to get past a lot of opposing players. Dribbling is one of many ways that helps in moving forward toward the target. It is, therefore, a fundamental skill that needs to be mastered by the whole team that wants to play soccer. To take on defenders one-on-one, dribbling is definitely a key attribute. Training your players to dribble better will not only lead to individual stars but will help the team build a better ball control.
