This quick free-kick is designed to catch opponents on the back foot. Without time to organise, they will be caught out not only by the speed of play but the switch of play. MORE
Dummy describes the deception employed when a player lets the ball run past him or through his legs to a team mate.
The most important player in the dummy movement is a player behind who is about to receive a pass.
As the pass is played, the receiving player must call out “dummy” in order to tell the receiving player to leave the ball and let it run through.
