Passing Techniques and Controls
There are three key types of passing:
- Short Pass (Ground Pass) – Short pass is a ground pass that sends the ball to a teammate in a short distance.
- Through Pass – Through pass is a forward pass which travels into an open space through your opponent defenders so your attackers can grab the ball beyond the defenders.
- Lob Pass / Cross – Lob pass is a aerial pass that is used to send the ball to a teammate in a high arc and a long distance. This pass method is also used for doing a cross.
These passing methods have different types, and we’re going through each of them here:

Passing Speed, Strength and Reaction
The speed and strength of your passes are determined by holding the pass buttons. The longer you hold the button, the more strength and pace you’re going to put on the ball. The quicker you press the pass button, the shorter the reaction time your player will take to pass the ball. For example, to do a one-touch or 1-2 pass, you just need to do a quick tap on the passing button.
