If you see a player in space in the next third, the overhead pass is the one to use.
Tall defenders can reach up and intercept the ball, so you must put plenty of power into the pass.
Spread your fingers around the ball but don't let it rest on your palms. Bend your arms and try and keep your elbows in close to your body.
Lift the ball over your head and allow it to drop back slightly - this will give you a little extra push as you release the ball
Put one foot forward as this will help you lean into the pass.
Aim between your team-mate's head and their chest - this should help them catch the ball easier.
Give the ball a little push upwards by getting your whole body weight behind it.
Don't forget to stretch out your arms and fingertips upon release.
