Heading is an attribute that is related to how well a footballer can hit the ball (passing or shooting) with their head. A good header of the ball can control the headers well and can make accurate, powerful and well timed headers. The attribute will therefore have an impact on the accuracy as well as the ability to perform a pass or shot (with head) that is difficult to intercept or stop for their opponents. The heading attribute is always used when performing a direct pass or direct shot when the ball is above a footballer's waist (yellow on the ballpath).
