This quick free-kick is designed to catch opponents on the back foot. Without time to organise, they will be caught out not only by the speed of play but the switch of play. MORE
Info on the Pass
Info on the pass is a coaching term used to encourage players to communicate when passing the ball.
When making a pass, the player passing the ball should give information to the receiver. For example:
“Man on!” This means a player is threatening the receiving player from behind.
“Time!” This means player with the ball has enough time and space to receive the ball unopposed.
“Turn!” This instructs the receiving player to turn in the opposite direction to switch play or move forward with the ball.
