Hi! I’m Mark Wilson from United Soccer Academy.
We are here today with Expert Village and we are taking a look at how we can shoot the
soccer ball. We are going to have a look on how we shoot a soccer ball using the inside
of our foot. We will do this when we have to try and place the ball, so we compromise
on power but we look for placement. Okay so just to show that technique, we have our non
kicking foot besides the ball, our kicking foot comes in with a lock ankle, our toe is
lifted, our ankle is locked, and we strike the ball just below the ankle bone and we
follow through. As we follow through, we actually drop our shoulders back. That gives us just
the power that we need to place the ball past the goal keeper. Let’s take look with our
demonstrators. So just to recap we use the inside of the
foot for placement, we want to push the ball past the goalkeeper. Our coaching points for
our player are that we lift our toe, we lock our ankle, we follow through and we drop our
shoulder back to give us the power that we need to score a goal.
