Goalkeeping



Throwing
The ability to throw the ball quickly and accurately is increasingly important.

Many of the top keepers can throw the ball more than half the length of the pitch, and the distance and accuracy they can achieve is a big counter-attacking weapon for the team.

The overarm throw allows you to clear the ball over a longer distance and at greater height.

And it can be more accurate than kicking the ball.
