Chip

What is Chip?

Chip meaning A chip is when the ball is struck directly underneath, causing the ball to go straight up in the air. This is used to get the ball over defenders, landing near or at a teammate – or lofting the ball over a goalkeeper for a shot. A quick, stabbing motion of the foot under the ball creates the loft.
