The Rivelino (or stepover) is a great 1v1 skill for fooling the defender so you can create space to make your next move. It involves an exaggerated step over with your right foot from outside to inside, then a tap with the outside of your same foot in the other direction. To make the fake convincing, use your upper body and eyes so the defender takes the bait—and make sure you’re a minimum of a yard away or the ball might being poked of your control. When executed successfully, the Rivelino gives you a chance to take a quick power shot in a game.
