Cruijff Turn

Cruijff Turn
The Cruijff Turn (also spelled Cruyff Turn outside the Netherlands) is an evasive football move that was perfected
by and named after Dutch footballer Johan Cruijff.
To do this move, Cruijff would look to pass or cross the ball.
Instead of kicking it, he would drag the ball behind his planted foot with the inside of his other foot, turn through 180
degrees, and accelerate away outside the defender.
The trick was famously created by Cruijff in the 1974 FIFA
World Cup, first being seen in the Netherlands' match against Sweden where he outwitted Swedish defender Jan
The move was soon widely copied by other players around the world.
It remains one of the most
commonly used dribbling tricks in the modern game.
