2) The GK then sidesteps into the square ensuring both feet are in the area

3) The GK steps Out and Forward, with the leading leg ready to push off across the goal to catch a far post feed.

In Play Skill

A server or striker can now be brought in to shoot towards the pole at the back post (the post resembles a realistic far post shooting location but allows the goalkeeper a good chance to save the ball).

The Goalkeeper must start at the front post, move across his goalmouth and save the ball. If the goalkeeper does not push off he should still be praised for saving the ball but the GK can be moved further towards the near post or the striker can be made more central. This can be made realistic by a player passing the ball to the striker from the by line.
