I play as a goalkeeper for my schools soccer team i can confirm this is 100% legitimate.

The approach to the ball, being about 2 paces to the left and 5 paces back, is the optimal approach for maximum power and accuracy aiming for the top left.
The kickers left hip opens to the left making any shot other than to the left an awkward one.
The left foot is completely planted to the left before it rolls onto the toes, the keeper saw that plant and added it to the likelihood the shot would go left.
And of course the #1 thing to look for is where they kicker is looking, in the approach the kicker glances at the left post and then at the ball.


perhaps the most innacurate part of this is that the goalkeeper should not be completely centered. Most people have a dominant leg that they can dive faster and farther off of. The keeper should be farther from this side of the goal (maybe 4 -6 inches) to compensate for the weaker side.


a penalty kick at the professional level cannot be about reacting to the ball, the power put into the ball will make any reaction time too late. Instead it is a battle of minds on who can read their opponent better, in this case, the penalty kicker won.

I'm English   
I don't like Football (or "Soccer" as you call it)   
I'm an American Football fan (Go Pats)   
At least call it by the name given to it by the people who invented it.   
We could just call American Football "American Rugby", but we don't/   
And before you say Americans invented American Football, it can be traced back to the American Colonial Era. Who colonised America (Or the New World as it was known as)? The British

My question to the soccer fans is their weak ass defense that Soccer is great because it is the most popular sport around the world... Especially people on FJ should know that most things that are popular are just terrible... Rihanna is one of the most popular artists of all time, is she good or talented? no... she appeals to the lowest common denominator of music listeners and sells records. The same can be applied to soccer. It is an easy sport with little to no money needed to play, any one can afford to play, and it appeals to the lowest common denominator of people around the world... Soccer isn't the best sport. It is the most accessible sport...

The fact that it's incredibly cheap to play is what makes it the best in the world. Any kid from the poorest family in the world can dream of following his dream to become the best in the world and doing it for a living. It also makes the competition to become a lot harder due to the amount of people all chasing the same dream. The most accessible sport? Yes. Best sport in the world? Let the world decide that
