1. Composure - If you want to score more goals, its vital that you stay composed in the D.
Focus on the technical aspect of scoring the goal, e.g., staying low and agile.
2. Belief – A large part of goal scoring is mindset, if you believe you can do it you will and if you have a more negative approach to trying to score, you won’t be as successful.
Be Brave, get stuck in.
Don’t be afraid.
Believe in yourself and your ability on the pitch.
3. Deception – Don’t be obvious, try changing the way your body is angled or aim for another part of the goal. For example, dropping your shoulder as a dummy, may make the goalkeeper to try and make a save and become unbalanced.
Remember you are quicker than the GK.
There is no need for the shot to be hard, but it needs to be accurate.
4. Avoid Perfectionism – It hasn’t got to be the perfect shot; the key is to get lots of shots at goal.
Test the keeper through creativity.
Eyes up, look for the space.
5. Always be ready - Never back away from a shot at goal and always been in a goal scoring position.
Get a touch on the ball wherever you can.
Follow up on rebounds and deflections.
