One-touch Football

One-touch football is passing or shooting the ball with one touch rather than dribbling the ball first. This modern style has its roots in the Netherlands of the 1980s. Later, Arsenal under Arsène Wenger perfected that concept and it seemed to be a dominant trend in the mid-2000s. One-touch football is most commonly executed by teams with skilful attacking players. The attackers usually act like target men by utilizing simple flicks or just slight and accurate touches. This style of football when executed effectively can avoid the opponent’s pressing, as the ball leaves the zones very quickly and moves to newly opened holes within the opposing formations.
