2. (Coach) Reviews Messi and Ronaldo touches and addresses when and where to use each touch. Introduces inside/outside touches.

3. Allow the players to practice.

Coaching Points:

1. Keep you head up - Look out for other players who may bump into you. Look for open space and cut away from others with the outside surface of your foot.

2. Recognize when to use Messi vs. Ronaldo touches while performing the move. (Before/After?)

3. Maintain a low center of gravity

4.Touch after recognizing there's space - needs to be explosive but controlled into space away from players reach.

Progressions:

(P1) - 5 lives; Each players has 5 lives to start of with, if they dribble out of bounds or by accidentally bumps into another player he/she loses a life. If a player gets down to zero lives left he/she must see a coach for a technical challenge that will give them an additional 5 lives. After 2 minutes see who many lives each player has left.
