Shooting from distance - Go on, have a pop!

Rating: 4
from 20 members ratings

How many times have you heard the crowd shout "SHOOT!" when players like Yaya Toure or Stevie G are bearing down on goal? That's because the occasional long range effort can have the keeper unaware before the ball is past them.

Sometimes the pitch opens up, defenders are backing off and the best option is simply for your player to put their laces through the ball and have a pop on goal from distance. By catching the opposition off guard and getting a clean connection, your team can score some spectacular goals!

That's what this week's session is designed to do - to encourage your players to take the opportunity to strike when they're presented with it! Power is a bonus but the main aim here is for your players to get their strikes on target - to test the keeper and create rebounds for your players to pounce onto!
