The Kansas City Shuffle
We can all learn a thing from the 2006 movie thriller Lucky Number Slevin. In this specific case, we can learn about the Kansas City Shuffle... The premise is simple, “they look right, and you … look left”
Show the defender one direction
They commit and look away
You go the other way
Let’s check out the KC Shuffle in practice.
Frame #1 - Movement For The Defender
The defender in the box is directly facing eventual goal-scorerErling Haaland. As such, the defender is able to see and react to what Haaland is doing.
Red triangle = where the defender is looking
Yellow = Defender movement
Blue = Attacker movement
