Verb: A soccer (football) term used to describe a perfect cross to a teammate for a goal. Usually the pass is from a distance and to the head of the goal scorer.

The origin of the word comes from US WNT player Megan Rapinoe who made the amazing game-winning cross to Abby Wambach in the 122nd minute of the 2011 World Cup match vs Brazil.

Can also be referred to as "pinoed".
