Catch the goalie off his line

This blog is about shooting from half or as far out as 40 yards. I don’t recommend shooting from this distance regularly. However, if the opportunity arises seize it like any other scoring chance. The key element to scoring a goal from this distance, besides accuracy, is to surprise everyone including the goalie. Normally, goals that are scored from outside the box are not a surprise to anyone. The goalie simply isn’t able to move in time to save the ball. However, when shooting from even further out there is a key difference compared to a normal 25 yard shot.
