Brave Goalkeeping

Further to my post of bravery, in which I focused on the 1v1 situation, here are a couple of YouTube videos showing the technique of 1v1 with Hope Solo and another that is from the training ground of a Goalkeeping Academy showing some aspiring young keepers being taught the technique of 1v1. This of course needs that element of bravery as the keeper will need to dive at feet.

Practice makes perfect…

Check out this YouTube video. However, to our young goalkeepers, please may I ask you to showboat on the training ground only! Plus also a word to the wise, this guy has spent ages perfecting his skill to just kick these dead balls perfectly and although it may not necessarily be clear to see him using an imagery script, he has got to a level where he can automatically adjust (without realising) to suit to kick the ball. Just goes to show that practice can make perfect!
