Goal scoring lessons and striker skills for all forwards can be seen as watching Chris Wondolowski of

US Men’s team. Wondo is putting on a striker clinic as he plays in the Gold Cup 2013 and now has

racked up 5 goals of many angles. Already Wondo has knocked in a hat trick with in 41 minutes in one

half, and two goals vs Cuba, to show his striker skills as his spacing around the 6 yard line shows his

awareness to stay open in tight spaces. Be on your toes strikers/forwards, you just never know when

the ball will come bouncing your way. Quick pokes at the ball and touching it away one-time are the

drills every striker should work on with in a 15 yard half circle from the goal mouth. On longer shots

like 18yards out, watch Joe Corona one time strike vs Cuba, that comes from many years of one time

shots from all angles at distance. Corona, Donovan, and Wondolowski all show you how not to over

power the ball, but just strike it clean and let the angle make the finishing touch. In a MLS match,

Soony Saad from Sporting KC had an example of a nice side volley inside the 6 yard line area as he

took what the defense was not clearing out, and had to make up a shot was just a reaction. Another

great striker who takes the touch with out over powering the ball would be Chris Rolfe of Chicago Fire,

watch as he touches the clip just past the keeper instead of looking for hard shot at goal. All these

examples are goal scoring lessons and striker skills for all forwards to master, watch below. [Read more…]
