Basic shooting
Step One

The basics are the same as the low drive with the instep, but you will increase the power by bringing the kicking leg through quickly and increasing your follow through.

Try and keep your shots low and aim for the corners as this is the hardest area for the goalkeeper to save.

If you shoot towards the far post, then a team-mate can take advantage of any rebounds.

Aim to get plenty of power into the shot, but don't sacrifice accuracy.

If a shot isn't on target it doesn't matter how hard you hit it because you won't score.
