So you want to learn how to play like Pirlo, well check out this video below. Here are some soccer passing tips and ideas from the former AC Milan and now Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo.
Pirlo shows you how to pull off the blind pass or the pass where you look in the opposite direction to where you're passing. Really, there's no soccer player in the world who has better passing skills and passing technique than Andrea Pirlo. How many times have you seen Pirlo send that long diagonal pass right to the feet of a teammate? He does it just about every game he plays. And how many times have you seen Pirlo lose possession of the ball - it happens, but rarely.
Another thing that Pirlo does so well is shield the soccer ball. If you watch him game he uses his body really well to protect the ball. While he might not be the fastest soccer player, he's probably one of the smartest, and he knows how to shield the ball from defenders.
