Description

Accuracy- Look to see where the goalkeeper is and where the space is to shoot the ball. If the goalkeeper is standing slightly more to one side aim for the bigger side of the goal. Make the keeper work!

Positive first touch- when shooting the ball ensure you have a first touch out of your feet, which enables you to get a good strike on goal.

Technique- Knee, head and shoulder over the ball. Keep arms out for balance and strike through the ball.
