Dribbling the ball is the first task for any futbol player, so they can control the ball. Start with the ball in front of you; you always want to keep it close to your feet for dribbling. Then tap the ball with the inside of your foot, while traveling with the ball, tap the ball again. The player should practice traveling using both feet and putting your foot on the ball to stop its motion. Try to use cones, trees, or other balls to dribble around to learn how to control the strength of your tap and speed. When you can dribble the ball with the inside of your foot, you can begin to learn to pass the futbol.

Try tapping it with the left foot, and then kicking with the inside of your foot. Practice these passes with both feet, and work on accuracy by passing to someone else or to a cone. After you have developed this pass, you can pass with the outside of your foot. This is much harder to do, but is an effective passing technique. Practice keeping your head and shoulders up; do not look constantly at the ball.
Controlling the ball consists of trapping the ball, so that you can redirect it with a dribble or pass. The player can use the inside or outside of his foot to control the ball or redirect it.
