Why goalkeepers shouldn’t be too quick to celebrate

If you’re a goalie: never celebrate until you are 100% sure the ball is not in the net. Better yet, make sure the ball is cleared away from the net. Most often in goalie blunders, the goalie his eyes off the ball and it results in an embarrassing moment. In this clip, the goalkeeper immediately starts walking away and pumping his fists while the ball hasn’t been cleared away from the net. Big mistake! Watch and see what happens…

The idea for Goalden is to help other soccer players of all ages improve the many different aspects of their game. We began coaching youth teams and watching youth soccer all over Ontario. We watched semi-professional and professional teams and noticed how far the game still has to develop here. From that, we decided we want to help others obtain the best information as early as possible in their soccer careers. We want to educate readers about the game of soccer and the fine details that are often overlooked by coaches in North America.
