Soccer drill procedure

Scoring a goal immediately after a one-eighty is the target of this drill. The player may not lose any time while turning. Smooth run towards the goal, pull the ball perhaps with the sole.


A player runs to the two cones that are placed at some distance from the goal. He turns, with his back facing the goalkeeper. After arriving at the cone, he receives a pass from a forward passer. The goal is scored after receiving the pass and immediately following the one-eighty. While receiving the ball, pull it immediately to the side of the cone.


- Different goal shot techniques
- Do the drill on the other side
- The ball is thrown, depending on the level of performance, by the bouncer to chest height.
