Hey, I'm Mattie Teaney. I've played soccer my entire life. I have coached the past seven years and I'm here to show you a few things about the world's most popular sport, soccer. There are many different ways to lift the ball in soccer. One of the most common is just like that. Some of the other ones include putting your left foot next to the ball and rolling it up your leg like that. So it's going to look like that. Another common way that I like because it looks a little bit fancier is you put your left foot next to the ball and you take your right heel and hit the corner of the ball. So it's kind of like that. You want to make sure that you don't move your left foot at all or else it's going to look like the one I just did. Keep your left foot stationary and lift it right up to yourself. Some other common ways to lift the ball are when you pass it. So you're going to want to get under the ball and you're going to want to chip it like in golf. So you want to hit low on the ball and you're going to use your shoelaces. Another common way is just simply getting under the ball and pushing it like that.
