Throw In

Here is a short tutorial on how to restart play with a throw in.

When you are awarded a throw in, you could

  1. Press Triangle / Y to throw the ball into space for a player to run into, usually throw down the flank for a chance to cross.
  2. A normal throw, then pump the ball to the other flank, switching the attack lane.
  3. Deliver a long throw into the box for a direct header/volley. It would cause defenders to panic and you might pick up a loose ball. A long throw could reach up to 20 metres when your player has that special ability. Use it to surprise your opponent when you are near goal.

Use every available means to launch an attack when playing PES 2010, and a good throw in might just spring a surprise on the opponent.
