How to Do the Nutmeg Soccer Trick

Learn how to do the soccer trick known as the Nutmeg from soccer coach Deejae Johnson in this Howcast video.


Hi, I'm Deejae Johnson, I'm a soccer coach in San Francisco. I've been around the game since I was three years old. I'm a USSFA-licensed soccer coach, as well as NSCAA advanced national coaching badge, and today I'm going to show you some soccer tricks. The Nutmeg: You need to get the ball through your defender's legs, and then get around them, and into the space behind. They key is, how do you open up their legs? The best thing to do is some kind of move, or a half move in order to get the defender's legs open, that way you could slide the ball through their legs and get to the other side. But be careful doing too many Nutmegs in the game, cause no defender likes to get Nutmeg'd.
