Passing



The approach to the ball is the same as with the short sidefoot pass.

Approach the ball at an angle of about 30 degrees so that you have room to swing your kicking leg through.

Position your non-kicking foot close to the side of the ball, use your arms for balance and keep your head still and eyes on the ball.
