What do my teammates mean when they tell me to split the defense?

Go through the middle of them like this:

x o x


the o is you, and the X's are the defense. So you might take the ball in between the two defense.

... and once you are roughly even with them, your teammate will probably give you a through-ball. Quite effective, especially if you are a quick striker.
