First Touch: Receiving Ball with Outside of Foot

This technique for receiving the ball on our first touch uses the outside of our foot. This is effective when you need to receive the ball and protect the ball from a defender. Use the outside of your foot to receive the ball to the outiside of the cones and then make the pass.
