      I heard the phrase ‘pass them to death‘ on the TV commentary today as the speaker described how well Italy kept the ball – their possession stats were really high. Italy’s passing was so good that their opponents Turkey could not get a touch and eventually became exhausted trying to get the ball back – they were passed to death or as we also know it – passed off the pitch.
