What is the meaning of "fizz" in football?

83 min: Greenwood spins cutely down the right, reaches the byline, and fizzes low and hard into the six-yard box. An easy gather for Leno.

52min: Almost the perfect impact from the substitute Chilwell down the other end.

Lukaku shifted across to the right-hand side and played the ball into the air and down for Chilwell.

He thundered one towards goal on the volley, but the effort fizzed over the crossbar and away.

To fizz a shot means to hit the shot really hard. We can sometimes see it used when describing a shot that just goes wide - the ball fizzed wide or as in the second example, fizzed over the bar.

A player can also fizz a pass to a team mate - a hard and direct pass (drilled is another way of saying fizzed)
