There are two main ways to beat a penalty: to react or jump at random. The first is good because it allows with high probability to determine which corner would be a blow, but to effectively "save" you will need a good reaction. In the second case the goalkeeper does not waste precious seconds on the direction of the blow, but the result is entirely dependent on capricious fortune. You need to stand on their toes, because if you rely completely on the whole foot, the distance and speed of the jump will be much worse. You need to push off that leg in the direction of the directed blow.
It makes sense to look not only at the ball, but on the opponent that is determined to strike protected you save. Before you blow stop enemy takes a certain position, corresponding to the direction of impact. This allows the goalkeeper to decide to jump in a little earlier and hit a penalty kick. However, an experienced player is able to turn a stop for a few moments before impact, sending it in the opposite direction and thereby deceiving the goalkeeper, who oversees the stop. This, for example, was famous for the now retired Zinedine Zidane.
However, while the goals are large enough that even the most skillful goalkeeper was able to control this space. According to statistics, the top third of the gate is considered a true "dead zone" for the ball – very few people manage to get fired the ball there. While the impact of average height is reflected in 30% of cases, and at the bottom 57%. In particular, the eminent Dutch international Dennis Bergkamp for this reason said the following: "I always try to hit above the goalkeeper, in what people are saying: Oh, you try to score as beautifully as possible! But I say, look, if the goalkeeper is quite a bit ahead of the goal line, how much space remains on the sides of it? Bit. And over it? More. Do the math. And it's great. If you get it right, you can't miss".
Advice 2: How to take a penalty
To score from the penalty spot is both easy and hard. On the one hand, you're eleven meters from goal, beat without interference by standing the ball. Prevent you can only the goalkeeper, and even then, only if he's lucky. But on the other hand, nerves that can hinder even the most experienced athletes. So how is it to score a penalty, not summing up the team?
Don't worry. As mentioned above, anxiety is your biggest enemy. Abstracted from reality. In your world should be only the ball and the goal. Of course, the goalkeeper will not disappear with your mind, but it can easily turn it off from the game, if not beat him.
Not tricky. There are, of course, the master of that, punching a penalty, trying to outwit the goalkeeper, for example the famous "Roman" Francesco Totti. However, you can easily outwit not only the goalkeeper but, if you begin to split hairs. Especially when you're trying to beat the goalkeeper with a trick at the wrong time can get nervous and weak to hit the ball. It's not hockey, it's better here for sure.
Select the angle. If you are tricky, then directly to hit is not worth it. The goalkeeper is easiest to take a direct shot on goal. Select the angle, right or left, doesn't matter. The main thing - to choose it you need to run. When the whistle has already passed, but you haven't moved at all, you should know exactly which corner hit. Feel free to look in this angle, if you will break strongly into the top corner, no Keeper will not be able to pull the ball out.
Hit much. In the corner weakly beating does not make sense – the goalkeeper is easily able to catch or hit a slow flying ball. Without looking at the gate to beat too, not worth it - you can hit by, as they say, "on sparrows".
Don't look at the goalkeeper. It so happens that goalkeepers try to distract the kicker. Also bad form is to distract the goalkeeper. It's better to be honest, still an advantage is the kicker, because he knows where he will strike, and the goalkeeper – no.
