Outside Of Foot Pass

You can use this pass to curl and shape the ball around defenders, allowing you to reach teammates in tight spots down the field. The variable spin you will put on the ball makes it difficult for the defender to anticipate and intercept. You'll keep your toe down and slightly inward in order to create just the right amount of spin on the ball for the situation you are in. Speedsters like Gareth Bale will also use this technique to curl the ball around a defender and make a break for the goal. Check it out here.
