Hi I’m Vasili Uspensky, former VCU goalkeeper
and CoachUp Coach. And this is a penalty kick. Now go shag balls. This is Patrick. Patrick is fighting for a
spot on his varsity squad. And today we’re gonna talk about how to stop a penalty kick.
The key to penalty kicks is really all in the timing. If you can anticipate when that
shot’s about to come and dive right beforehand, you’re gonna make your chances of stopping
that shot way better. So when the shooter’s about to strike, watch
for their eyes as they go down to the ball. There’s a split second right after their eyes
have gone down. In that moment, they’ve committed to the shot.
