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/pace you’re going to put on the ball. The quicker you press a pass button, the shorter reaction your player will take to pass the ball. For example, for doing an one-touch or 1-2 passing, you just need to do a quick tap on a passing button.
