Entry from British & World English dictionary
A deliberate pass to one’s own goalkeeper (who is not allowed to pick up the ball if the pass was kicked).
- Runs and passes are both part of the playbook, but you also have trick plays like the flea flicker or the running back pass in your repertoire.
- And goalkeepers should be allowed to pick up the ball again from back passes.
- The only alteration for decades has been to prevent the goalkeeper picking up a kicked back pass.
