Sole of the foot control
The heavier, weighted ball in Futsal means that it can be passed with great speed around the court. If the receiving player is under pressure (and they are likely to be because space is limited) then their controlling touch should be a really secure one. Using the sole of the foot to control the ball means that the ball can be passed with real pace and accuracy and once contact with the ball is made the player is able to move the ball quickly away from pressure and into space.
Practice this until it becomes natural to you as it is one of the key techniques needed to play Futsal.
