Goalkeeper dropping the ball

After a save, you can drop the ball by double-tapping R1 to surprise your opponent with a quick counter-attack.

This is a great solution when you see someone unmarked in the radar - just make sure you won't lose the ball as soon as you drop it!

If you realize your box is too crowded, you can sprint with your Goalkeeper or simply wait until the opposition drops back.

When I don't see a counter-attacking opportunity, 90% of the time I will still resume play with this technique instead of using the GK's default High/Low Punt kick, which isn't as precise.
