Shooting



There is nothing more impressive than scoring with an overhead kick.

It's tough, but once you master it you'll be able to at least get in a shot, even when you have your back to goal.

You'll also be able to clear the ball when you're facing in the wrong direction.

Practise it on soft ground to prevent injuring your back, and don't overdo it.
