Does your goalkeeper have trouble with kicks?

DCTo be good at goalkicks the keeper has to practice. With practise comes confidence, and with confidence comes consistency.

Start by getting defenders to come short so the goalkeeper doesn’t have to get the ball far out of the penalty area.

You don’t want your team to be penned in their own half, but doing this does mean that players have to be more inventive in constructing passing moves upfield, and it still allows for occasional longer kicks that may catch the opposition off guard.
