One of the most important tactics in the sport of soccer is passing. Precision passing takes years of practice and thousands of attempts to get it right. There are many ways to pass a ball and like billiards and golf, there are certain spins you can put on a soccer ball for ultimate control.
Here is an accurate 25 yard pass. Not only is it a 25 yard pass, but its a “BackSpin Pass”. The BackPass controls the ball & puts it where its meant to land. This is important when you need to give it to your player so they can have maximum control after they receive the ball.
When a ball is kicked, the foot is on the ball for 16milliseconds. This doesn’t give you much time to adjust the foot, this has to be a decision made within less than 1.1 seconds as your brain processes that this is the pass you want to make.
