The most exciting moments in a soccer game clearly take place around the goal box when a goal is scored. Soccer has changed and will continue to change. The speed of all playing actions will continue to get faster. The area around the ball will be blocked more effectively. Every technique must be mastered and executed accurately under pressure with tremendous speed, today and in the future. Therefore, the demands made on our players for a successful finish continue to grow. This trend in soccer must also be taken into consideration during shooting practice.
