Think you know your disguises from your feinting? Or what jockeying is?
The Academy gives you an insight into those crucial footballing words.
It's all in the eyes. If they're fixed on that round thing you might miss your opponent's movement. Spectacles optional.
There's only one thing you'll see for any unsporting behaviour or bad fouls. Let's hope it's only yellow and not red.
Defenders will tell you the strikers get all the glory. Nonsense. Stopping goals is vital for winning any game.
It's a great trick to pretend to make a pass or move from an opponent and then do something completely different.
Needed sometimes to restart the game after a brief stoppage when the ball has not gone out of play. Okay butter fingers?
Drop that shoulder and make your marker think you're going to run in another direction. They'll be the one on the floor.
Beware. That person in black is on the look-out. A trip, push or kick and that whistle will be ringing in your ears.
It's not always best to jump in. It's the art of holding up the opponent and waiting for your tackle. Saddle not required.
Ever had an opponent in your pocket? It's all about staying close to them. When they get the ball, you say BOO!
These players up front are the football kings - or so they tell us! Their job is to score goals and when they do - stand back.
Nothing to do with unfit players! Whether it's a blinding 50-yarder or a little toe-poke, a good pass needs the right speed. Not pies.
