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.

Middle

Dive in whichever way you think the ball will go with your arms outstretched as soon as the taker makes contact with the ball. This requires speed and reaction time. If you have dived the right way lock your arms straight and position your hands behind the ball. Do not bother catching the ball as you may fumble the ball into your own net.

If you dive the wrong way, stretch your legs to try and block the ball. ...read more.

If the kick is missed it would be retaken. What would happen if an attacker moved within 10 yards and touched the rebounded ball i.e. if the penalty is saved or comes off the goal? An indirect free kick would be given to the defending team. ...read more.
