This week in our Nike App review series, we take on a drill that requires only a wall, football, and couple of friends. The Speed Touch is a variation of the traditional trap-and-volley exercises that nearly every footballer practices at an early age to help improve ball control.
The app has a bunch of Nike FootballX Skills tutorials, and they’re basically all geared toward street soccer, as you can see by the concrete courts and makeshift pitches they use. But some of the moves, like “The Scorpion,” are almost impossible to pull off in game play situations. So how helpful is The Speed Touch drill? We tried it for ourselves to give you the lowdown on whether the drill will help your game or not.
