when you're running to a particular spot,it is better to redirect the ball in your path rather than trapping it to a complete stop. When receiving try to make contact with the middle or top part of the ball. Tap it lightly in the direction that you want it to go. Good footballers can always settle the ball into open space,even when under pressure. This gives them extra time and keeps them one step ahead of the opposition.
Trapping is typically used when the ball is going too fast to redirect at first touch. The most important part here is staying loose on your toes. You cant adjust to the ball when you're stiff and flat footed. Try keeping your hips open in the direction from where the ball is coming. Put your foot in the path of the ball and cushion it. When cushioning gently withdraw your foot in the opposite direction from where the ball is coming
