Could you explain what the words in bold mean?

GOAL! Italy 1-0 England (Raspadori 68)

Out of not very much at all, a wonder goal! Raspadori takes delivery of a speculative pass down the inside-left channel. He brings it down from the sky, takes a touch to the left, drops a shoulder back to the right, sending Walker off to the shops, and whips a sensational shot across Pope and into the right-hand side of goal. One hell of a finish!

To bring down a ball is to control the ball - it suggests that it is quite a difficult ball to control. The word 'sky' suggests that the ball came down from a great height so this control by the Italian player was even more impressive.
