How to Do Threaded Through Passes
The threaded through pass is a useful technique to hand the ball to your teammates by adding a slight spin to the ball as it travels deeper into the pitch. This is effective when used to exploit openings or gaps between the defenders, allowing a teammate behind them to receive the ball.
To perform a threaded through pass, hold the R1 button and press the triangle button (R1+△). If done correctly, your player will kick the ball toward the receiving teammate with a slight bend to it. The curve is meant to make it more difficult for defenders to intercept your pass.
Tips for Threaded Through Passes
- The key to a successful threaded through pass is to make sure that the player who you will pass to is in good position near any defenders to receive the ball.
- As much as possible, take the threaded through pass with a player’s strong foot for better results.
