When bringing a high ball down under control in one touch we often use the inside of our foot. There is nothing wrong with this approach but it is important to learn how to use the other parts of the foot depending on how the play is developing around you. Sometimes it is faster to bring the ball down with the top of your foot instead of the inside of the foot. However, when players try to bring the ball down with the top of their foot they often make a fundamental mistake which is: they use the laces part of the foot.
Pick any particular game on TV or online and you’re going to witness at least one form of volley: A full volley, a half volley, a side volley, or the rare but unparalleled flying volley. Most times they’ll fail. But no matter what the outcome, it’s the risk involved that usually gets the fans behind the player who’s willing to attempt such a difficult maneuver.
