Signature Soccer Moves: The Ronaldo Chop

Need to juke a defender? Learn how to do the impressive misdirection play commonly known as the “Ronaldo Chop.”

The Ronaldo Chop is an advanced soccer move when you’re facing a defender one-on-one.

With one foot, approach the defender directly at a slight angle while in control of the ball. Pop forward to plant your off foot in front of the ball to shield it from the defender, while simultaneously kicking the ball with the inside of your other foot, so it crosses behind your plant leg just before it hits the turf. Then pursue and maintain possession of the ball while exploding past your defender.

You should practice the Chop in both directions. Master this signature soccer move with the help of this how-to video.
