Heading



Work on your attacking headers and you will send less chances over the bar, and more into the goal.

The key is to try to head downwards, and the only way to do that is to get over the ball.

Then you can direct the ball down towards the bottom corners, which are the hardest areas for a goalkeeper to defend.
