Technical skills: Finding gaps on the offensive dribbling

In this action we can see a dribbling that starts inside the defensive circle and goes all the way to the opponent’s. Take a look at the player running with the ball: his eyes are on the ball but he is reading the opponent’s tackles and following where do they go while they run with him.

 This way he is able to successfully cross in between the lines of the defenders finding the gaps between players.
