Tackling is the attribute which is a main decider in how well a footballer can take the ball from an opponent during a move. A good tackler also has a lower risk of causing a foul when trying to tackle. A good tackler is skilled not only in reading what the opponent with the ball intends to do when trying to dribble the tackling footballer but alsoin the technique of how to actually take the ball from the opponent. It may be a brute-force sliding tackle, a well-timed steal when the opponent let the ball too far away, or it can be a well-timed shoulder tackle.
