To score a penalty is both easy and difficult. On the one hand, you are eleven meters from the gate, you beat without hindrance to a standing ball.
Only the goalkeeper can interfere with you, and then only if he is lucky.
But on the other hand - nerves, which can prevent even the most experienced athletes.
So how do you score a penalty, without failing the team?
Do not worry. As mentioned above, excitement is your main rival. Abstract of the surrounding reality. In your world, only the ball and the gate should remain. Of course, the goalkeeper will not disappear anywhere thanks to your thought power, but you can easily turn it off if you do not hit it directly.
Do not be cunning. There are, of course, masters who, punching penalty, Try to outsmart the goalkeeper, for exampleThe famous "Roman" Francesco Totti. However, you can easily outsmart not only the goalkeeper, but yourself, if you start to think hard. Moreover, when you try to beat the goalkeeper by cunning, at the most inopportune moment you can get nervous and slap the ball lightly. It's still not hockey, it's better for sure.
Select the angle. If you are not cunning, then it is not worthwhile to hit straight. The goalkeeper is the easiest way to take a direct shot at the goal. Select the angle, right or left, it does not matter. The main thing is to choose it before the take-off. When the whistle has already whistled, but you have not moved yet, you must know exactly which corner you are beating. Do not be shy to look into this corner, if you punch heavily into the "nine", no goalkeeper can pull the ball from there.
Beat strongly. In a corner it is not wise to beat weakly - the goalkeeper can easily catch or repel a slowly flying ball. Not looking at the gate to beat, too, is not worth it - you can strike past, as they say, "on sparrows".
Do not look at the goalkeeper. It happens that goalkeepers try in every possible way to distract the beating player. Also, it would be a bad form to distract the goalkeeper. Still, it's better to be honest, all the same the advantage is always with the beating player, as he knows where to beat, and the goalkeeper - no.
