Passing



Passing quickly gets the ball upfield and reduces the risk of giving away possession.

The sidefoot (inside of the foot) provides the greatest accuracy for passing.

But it is difficult to generate power and it is also easy for an opponent to see where you are intending to pass the ball.

For those reasons, it is best to use this skill just for short passes.
