When a target player receives the ball upfront, with a defender
on his back, if the target player feels he can turn, he should. However, in many cases, the target player doesn't feel he
can turn so he would lay the ball to another player (either a recessed forward or a midfielder or back).
When the ball gets played back, the target player should
then look to spin to get behind this defender and receive a return pass. The key to this type of spin is to spin in the opposite
direction that you play the ball. By doing this, it makes it extremely difficult (if not impossible) for the defender to
watch both you and the ball.
The key to remember is if you play the ball back to your
right side, spin to the left and if you play the ball back to your left, spin to the right.
