Guide to the lofted pass

Liverpool FC's Steven Gerrard is one of the finest exponents of the lofted pass, a ball played over longer distances which can set up goalscoring opportunities for your team-mates if executed well. The UEFA Training Ground gives you a step-by-step guide to how you can improve your own lofted pass with the assistance of England women's international Lianne Sanderson.
