Robbie Keane Chip Shot Goal = Pure Class

Jared Montz

Robbie Keane scored a great goal courtesy of a chip shot the other week!  Below is exactly what I said in the Online Soccer Academy eNewsletter.  If you aren't subscribed you should be!

I think I watched this goal at least ten times.  Robbie Keane makes it look so easy on the field sometimes.  This was one of those times.

Really study this play. Watch how he checks his shoulder before receiving the pass, he sees he has space and no defenders on his back, he turns, he gets the defender to commit, nutmegs him, then looks up again, sees the goalie is out and chips him.  He did what the game showed him.  He didn't force the play to happen.  If there was a defender tight on his back when he checked his shoulder he probably would have held the ball up and passed it back to a teammate.  

What he showed in this play was awareness and speed of play.  You can think this fast too... with lots and lots of speed of play practice.
