Driven Shot

The driven shot can help you generate as much power as possible when you’re shooting from outside the 18 and there’s time and space without a defender in the way. Start by keeping your head down, eyes focused and body compact. Make your prep touch at a 45-degree angle for maximum efficiency and force—and be sure to strike the ball with the top of your foot. A smooth stroke is far more important than leg speed in terms of aiming the ball at the goal and increasing your chances of scoring.
