How to Take a Penalty and Score

Footage captured by the Sky Sports high definition cameras, now installed at the back of football nets, have enabled Director of Sport & Exercise Sciences at Liverpool John Moores University, Professor Tim Cable, to study last season’s UEFA Champions League and this season’s Premier League penalties, to pinpoint the optimum technique for taking winning spot-kicks.



Professor Cable’s perfect penalty tips come following Arsenal’s dramatic penalty shoot-out win and are as follows:


* The ball needs to cross the goal line at exactly 0.5m below crossbar and 0.5m inside the post.

* The ball needs to be kicked at a speed greater than 65mph.

* This requires a run up of 5/6 steps.

* The striker needs to commence his run up from the edge of [b18 yard[/b] line with an angle of approach of 20-30 degrees to the ball.


A penalty strike following these guidelines – requiring extreme accuracy and speed – is, according to Professor Cable, a ‘high-risk strategy’ but ‘virtually unstoppable’ by a goalkeeper. With dedicated practice, it would ensure a 100% scoring rate.

BUY GARDEN GOALPOSTS

THINK BEFORE BUYING GOALPOSTS

We suggest avoiding flimsy metal goals- they are just not up to the job.

Avoid heavy freestanding steel goals, they are cheap but dangerous – not worth the risk with children!

We also suggest making sure your goalposts have locking net supports – it’s really not ideal if every time you score a goal the net support comes out!

Also, check product reviews,  make sure the reviews are about the product not the fast delivery…its the product you need to know about.

Avoid goals with bending net support stanchions –  they bend and crease!

Kids want a goal that looks realistic so look at the goalpost design, make sure they have a roof to the net. All footballers like to score a goal in the roof of the net – its just not right if the goal doesn’t have one!
