Long ball

Long ball

In association football, a long ball is an attempt to move the ball a long distance down the field via one long aerial kick from either a goalkeeper or a defender directly to an attacking player, with the ball generally bypassing the midfield. Rather than arrive at the feet of the receiving attacking player, the attacker is expected to challenge the opposing defence in the air, with other attacking players and midfielders arriving to try and take possession of the ball if it breaks loose. In Continental Europe the style is called kick and rush. It is a technique that can be especially effective for a team with either fast or tall strikers. 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. While often derided as either boring or primitive, it can prove effective where players or weather conditions suit this style; in particular, it is an effective counter-attacking style of play in which some defenders can be caught off-guard.

Personal life

Tielemans was born in Sint-Pieters-Leeuw, Flemish Brabant.[34] His father is of Flemish descent and his mother is of Congolese descent.[35] He continued education until the age of 18, combining studies with his professional career.[7] He lives in the Leicestershire village of Quorn with his wife, Mendy, and their two daughters, Melina and Leana.[36][37]
