1 GK and 4 players

2 servers stationed either side of the goal with a supply of footballs

2 players at the shooting zone on the penalty box

Each server will pass to one of the two shooters blind side of the keeper.  Servers must vary between either of the two shooters to keep the keeper guessing. Keeper reacts to save an immediate shot (preferably no touch by the striker).

Keeper recovers and saves an immediate shot from the remaining shooter.

3 repetions for keeper and rotate.  Good rhythm to passing and shooting required.

Coaching Points

An intensive drill to test goalkeepers reactions, anticipation and agility.

Keeper maintains a neutral position on set to anticipate each shot. Move forward on each shot

Strong recovering off the ground using forearms and feet.
