A highly technical 1v1 move that’s great for making space to get a shot off, the Elastico is high risk but has the potential for big reward. It’s a two-touch move than can be executed whether the ball’s on the ground or in the air. First you flip soft to the outside foot, then cut hard with the inside foot while using your shoulders and arms to convince the defender you’re cutting the other way. The Elastico is often used near the penalty box because it can help psych out your opponents during a game and create time for the shot or assist.
