Torres in control during training

Watching this clip of Fernando Torres in training you can see how he uses his weight and control to move past the defenders and sets himself up for a shot at goal.

This is all about using technique to create the space that he needs to get a shot in. Show this clip to any young player and they will immediately try and copy it, because it looks easy. But that’s the beauty of the move – it’s simple to watch and if your players practice it they will become good at it.

He uses the inside and outside of his foot so the defender is not sure where the ball is going. Notice how the ball is pushed away from the body when he sets himself up to shoot so he can get his foot around the ball and get power behind it to drive it at the goal.
