How To Take A Goal Kick

For a goal kick, you’re gonna use the center and hardest part of your foot. So, you’re gonna want to start diagonally behind the ball, about three to four big steps away. As you approach the ball, you want to plant your opposite foot slightly ahead. You want to hit on the laces of your boots and keep your ankle locked. Cock your shooting leg back, and hit the ball right through the center.”
