Best soccer drills for defensive goalie success as we see more and more shut-outs in important

matches. Many coaches say the best offense is a great defense. Even if the offense is having an off

day, if your defense puts up a goose egg against the competition,  your offense should sneak in a goal

or two with PK’s and own goals. Good goalie play is probably the biggest element of successful

shut-outs / clean sheets. Just getting a hand on a good shot and putting it off to the side is one most

practiced skills that could save a shut-out. The defensive angles your back 5 take on pushing the

offense to the outer edges in the defensive third is so important to successful goalie victories.

As a goalie, when in doubt, punch or hit the ball out of play, as regrouping is always safer than making

sure you catch every ball. Watch these MLS gems of shut-outs, as you will see the results of best

soccer drills for defensive goalie success in action. Sometimes your best defender is the goal post.

Goalie And Defensive Teamwork For U10,U11,U12,U14,U16

Real Salt Lake vs FC Dallas 2013

 

 

 

 

 

 

Goalie and defensive teamwork for U10,U11,U12,U14,U16, these MLS matches are a great source of

watching teamwork from the goalie to the back four defensive players. Jimmy Nielsen the Sporting KC

goal keeper puts on an absolute clinic vs. the club from Toronto FC. This game shows why Nielsen is

the MLS leader of career goals against avg. , and why shut outs are not uncommon in Sporting KC

matches. Another great goal keeper to watch is Jeff Attinella of Real Salt Lake, quietly they have

put up some great shut outs and the best points total for the Western Division of the MLS so far in

2013. New York Red Bulls are clicking on all cylinders in the Eastern Division and the goal keeper

Luis Robles is the main reason why the defense is making a move in this hot July weather, putting

this team in the top 3 of battle for the east. The defensive four in front of these keepers are limiting

the quality of many shots, covering up the angles and clearing the ball from danger quickly. One keeper

who had a great game, but his defensive four in front of him let him down would be Toronto FC

Joe Bendik, who kept TFC in the Sporting KC match with many quality saves, but the lack of defensive

marking allowed too many easy chances through. Toronto in this match would be a bad example

for goalie and defensive teamwork for U10,U11,U12,U14,U16 players. [Read more…]

Catching the ball and controlling the ball is so important. Diving for the ball and catching it takes

good strength. Goalies must be able to be verbal, his teammates need to know he has the play.
