Analysis of Performance:Saving a Penalty

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Analysis of Performance: Saving a Penalty You must stand on the goal line. You have more chance of saving the penalty if you stand in the centre of the goal mouth facing the taker. You must remain relatively still until the taker makes contact with the ball. When the taker looks up to pick his 'spot' try to look as large as possible.

An indirect free kick would be given to the defending team. ...read more.
