    Hello. Can you improve your overall technique, your touch on he ball so it's more natural? I have problems with controlling the ball. When I touch it it looks more robotic then natural and I can't control it so well. Are there any drills to improve this or I have to get by with what nature gave me?

    Juggling and using a wall to play the ball back, trapping and kicking it back against the wall.

    I have such a poor touch that for example I struggle with the inside outside move from this video:
    The move is from 1:38 untill 2:18.
    I also struggle with the outside feet move(from 2:19 untill 2:45).

    That particular move is better known as the elastico. There is no special drill needed to learn this move. The key is to keep practicing, so that your foot and muscles learn the motion until it becomes second nature.

    Are you playing for fun? Or are you looking to play competitively?

    Keep practicing the move over and over. Make sure to practice it with someone else too. And watch videos of how other players do it. The player who did it best was Ronaldo in the 1998 final against Lazio:



    Follow the advice dejansavicevic10 offered to improve your touch in general. Keep ups and hitting a ball off the wall will help improve your touch.
