Your stronger foot is the one that you find easier to kick with
Your supporting foot should be facing the same way as your strong foot
In this example, the supporting foot is the left one.
With the sole of your foot, dragthe ball towards you in one movement and tap the ball off in a new direction using the inside of the same foot.
