Pel runaround move

Pel runaround move
The Pel runaround move is a football move designed
to get around an opponent.
[1]
The move requires
split-second timing and speed in execution - letting a
pass from a teammate approach but allowing it run pass
the opposition, then sprinting around the opposing
player to continue the attack. It relies on speed for its
execution in situations where there is little time or
space. The "Pel variant" was demonstrated by
Brazilian superstar Pel during the 1970 FIFA World
Cup against Uruguay. In the Uruguay game, Brazilian
center-forward Tosto played an excellent through pass
to Pel as a counter-attack started. Sprinting up the
middle, Pel was immediately confronted with the
experienced Uruguayan keeper Ladislao Mazurkiewicz
who came off his line quickly. Pel let Tosto's pass
approach, and then instead of taking it in stride, he let it
run around the far side of Mazurkiewicz. Circling the
keeper to collect, Pel's shot went just fractionally wide
of the Uruguayan goal.
Pel's move is a variant of the "selling the dummy" feint - letting the ball go around a defender then also circling the
opponent, rather than following the straight path of a pass or loose ball, and can be useful in tight situations. It is
discussed in such books as Scientific Soccer of the Seventies by soccer historian Kenneth MacDonald, who also
discusses Pel's contribution in Brazil's 1970 World Cup victory in detail. This "runaround" move is mentioned in
official FIFA World Cup Technical Reports as "audaciously executed, and called for immense skill, timing, judgment
and speed."

The Blomqvist shuffle
Jesper Blomqvist
Swedish player Jesper Blomqvist managed to perform a variant of the Pele
runaround move with more success, adding a fake, that resulted in a goal
when his IFK Gteborg played Helsingborgs IF in the Allsvenskan in 1995.
Blomqvist relied more on deception than Pel. Whereas the Brazilian had to
move with utmost speed to avoid Mazurkiewicz, Blomqvist had more time
and used a deceptive shuffling of the feet. Receiving an excellent through
pass, the Swede confused the approaching keeper - letting the ball run - and
faking left, while sprinting right, around his opponent. He collected the ball
on the other side and finished with an easy goal. As demonstrated by both
Blomqvist and Pel, the runaround move can thus work in
Pel runaround move

"emergency" situations where speed and split-second
timing is all, or where there is more time and space to
fake out an opponent. In both scenarios, it can lead to
spectacular results.
