Long ball is the term used in association football to describe an attempt, often speculative, to distribute the ball a long distance down the field via a cross, without the intention to pass it to the feet of the receiving player.
It is a technique that can be especially effective for a team with a tall striker to get in the box. The Long ball technique is also a through pass from distance in an effort to get the ball by the defensive line and create a foot race between striker and defender.
The long-ball game is also advocated in such books The Winning Formula: The Football Association Soccer Skills and Tactics which demonstrates with statistics that a majority of goals are scored within 5 passes of the ball
The long ball strategy has often been criticized as method that has held back the England national football team. It is generally considered by many around the world to be an English style of play that is primitive and used by teams lacking the skill to create plays, it is heavily criticized by supporters who prefer more skill based technical and tactical play.
It is however used by teams desperate to score a goal before the end of a match. The long ball technique is also effective in lower level football matches since players lack skill to work as a team and pass the ball accurately up the field. A long ball is a quick counter attack move and with a fast striker will produce multiple goals.
Long balls are an effective way to score goals since losing teams resort to this play in the dying minutes of a game. Teams usually resort to the long ball when there is no concern of the opposing team scoring again. A long ball is an attacking play with few defensive advantages.
The long ball is sometimes criticized as being used by weaker teams with less tactical skill. In the hands of mediocre teams, or at the lower youth leagues this might be so. Analysis of its implementation at world-class levels however, shows that effective use of long-ball techniques can be found in numerous competitive World Cup or championship club teams. It can be used as a counterattacking style, or as a daring through pass when opportunities open up during a game. The long ball requires top level skill to implement correctly. Mere passing is not the only variable- intelligent running into space, good dribbling and crisp finishings also required.
One of the best uses of the long-ball was Holland striker Dennis Bergkamp's goal against Argentina in the 1998 FIFA World Cup. Dutch defender Frank De boer initiated the move from near the middle of the field, with a long pass that curled over 7 opposing players. Bergkamp controlled the difficult ball, spun past a defender and smashed it home. The example illustrates the power of the long-ball style but also that it is more than simply pumping the ball upfield. Only Bergkamp's excellent skills were able to take advantage of the Deboer's outstanding, and daring pass. As such, it emphasizes that football is a game requiring not only a comprehensive package of individual skills, but imagination and creativity as well. Both are present in the long-ball style.
