Dropping - football


Senior Member
Hi, I have this sentence (football context)

I realized I had to brush up on dropping deep for the ball - Is "dropping" here meaning, that player going down (deep) to his defense area for the ball, or that je passing the ball to that defense area to his teammates? Thanks for answers

    Could you please give us your source and also the name of the player if he's well-known? If not, do you know what position he plays in?
    A couple of sentences from before this one would also help.

    Yes, "dropping deep" means moving from attacking areas back towards his/her own defensive area in order to receive a pass.
