Victory or defeat is often determined by a successful shot on goal. Goals make soccer interesting, in fact they may be considered the icing on the cake. But to score a goal the player also needs other skills, such as coordination, take-off power/explosiveness, passing, receiving and controlling the ball, dribbling, and good one-on-one playing ability. It is important to remember that the bulk of a player's actions during a game on the field consist of movements. Good conditioning and technique combined with mental toughness are good basic prerequisites for successful goal scoring. This book highlights all of these facets and shows them as tried-and-tested approaches in a number of sample exercises.
