The best top 10 international goal scorers and some great video

footage of just a few of their massive amount of goals scored

in international play. This black and white photo is of the greatest,

Josef “Pipi” Bican, back in the 1930’s he was the Pele/Messi

of football. Great goal scorers know, no matter how the ball gets

in the back of the net or how fast it gets there, it’s still worth only one point, not two points for being really fast or really fancy, just one point.

Efficiency, angle, and touch are the three things that a goal scorer thinks about. The ball only has to

travel completely over the line not have to rip the net from the goal posts. That’s the difference between

a goal scorer and a flash in the pan fad player who scores one goal and misses 100 others.

Consistency and awareness of the moment is the difference between these two players and the

realization most of the time it’s just passing the ball to the back of the net, a quick flick of the

foot to play keep away in a six yard area. It doesn’t have to be fancy to win a game, funny thing

about it, the simpler the harder it is to do in the heat of a split second, that’s the difference between great goal scorer and just another miss.

Three Best Shooting Drills For U10 to U16

Real Salt Lake vs Portland

 

 

 

 

 

Three best shooting drills for U10 to U16 knowing all positional field players will be called upon in

sometime in a game to shoot on goal, hoping to at least keep the ball on frame(goal). The key tips

are below and links to the drills. Number one, keep your knee over the ball as you strike the shot, this

will help in shooting the ball over the goal. Number two, don’t over power the ball, the idea is to hit it

clean and straight, too much power means over the bar. Number three, try not the lean back, keep your

body straight or slightly over the ball will keep it down for the most part. Remember many times a shot

is many times just a hard pass if you can picture that in your mind as you are preparing for the shot.

Also, angles are more important than power and speed of the ball, power comes later as you get better

technique. Final tip, a ball on goal(target) has a chance to score, it’s better to hit the ball slightly softer

to insure a chance to score. MLS Cup is coming soon, watch for some great shooting to win a championship, that will be you one day. [Read more…]

Teaching Goal Scoring To U9,U11,U13,U14,U15,U16

RSL vs LA G

 

 

 

 

 

Teaching goal scoring to U9,U11,U13,U14,U15,U16 using the MLS playoffs as great examples of

pressure strikes at goal. Working in the attacking third to keep the ball moving to open space wide,

then angle back into the 6 yd/14 yd danger area is the goal of any good offensive attack. Using ball

flicks off throw in head balls to excellent follow up on half volley shots, the goal is to spread out so

defensive deflections can become sometimes your best assist. In the Sporting KC match, you will see

both, a defensive deflection in front of the net right to Aurelien Collins and a beautiful half volley follow up

from Seth Sinovic. Another important offensive technique is the free kick cross into dangerous area,

witness Morales from Real Salt Lake not only do it once but twice in the same match for great scoring

opportunities. Crossing the ball into the 6 to 14 yard mark is so important but the spacing of the players

not to all go into the same area is even more important for the chance of the ball coming open to a

better shooting angle. These MLS videos are excellent for teaching goal scoring to U9,U11,U13,U14,U15,U16 players.

Faster soccer skills and better soccer scores is what every high school player is looking to improve.

As you watch matches, look for how the forwards are using pace and timing runs to get spacing away

from defenders. Changing the various speeds of dribbling and save that one blast of speed to get by that

one challenge that can change the game. The head ball spacing as you wait for a free kick to come

back into the box to the follow up that every offensive player should be hunting for til the play ends.

Work on finding space so that the first touch on any pass or deflection towards you can set you up for a

solid strike at goal. Remember, balls don’t always come to you with pace, sometimes YOU have to

move to the ball to win the possession, that’s rule #1. Midfielders pass the ball with pace t the forwards

keeping the ball moving towards the goal, and always follow up, defenders do make mistakes.

Sometimes the post becomes the best defender, shots on frame no matter the pace, always keeps the

danger inside the 6 yard box. Take a look at these MLS matches and see if you can pick out the faster soccer skills and better soccer scores of these pro’s. [Read more…]

Goal Scoring Lessons And Striker Skills For All Forwards

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…]
