Goalkeeping



body shots
Keepers need to be ready to react to a shot at any time, especially when they've gone for long periods without having to do anything.

Concentration is a major factor, and the keeper always needs to be in a "ready" position.

It is not always possible, but holding on to the ball when making a save means the opposition cannot pounce on a rebound.

And with shots coming at different heights, there are different techniques for handling the ball.
