Outside of Foot Shot with Power

There are lots of soccer skills and ways to do soccer shooting. There is no one way to do the soccer shot. In this football training video today we are learning how to shoot with the outside of your foot for power. This video is geared for soccer players but soccer coaches or a soccer coach can certainly use it as well. 

Shooting with the outside of your foot for power is a different style to regular shooting with your laces. You typically shoot with the outside of your foot when you want the ball to curve slightly out of a keeper's reach. 

For tips on how to do an outside of the foot pass please watch our Online Soccer Academy video titled "How to Bend a Soccer Ball with the Outside of your Foot - Crossing". 


Key Points:

1. Make sure you have proper shooting for power technique before you try this advanced technique. Learn proper shooting technique by watching my Online Soccer Academy video titled "How to Kick a Soccer Ball: How to Shoot a Soccer Ball with Power".

2. Strike the outside middle part of the ball. On a normal shot you strike in the middle of the ball. 

3. Place your plant foot to the side and behind the ball a step to allow your swing to come across your body slightly. 

4. Make contact with middle part of your laces, not the outside of your foot. Remember we are going for power with outside of the foot curve, not just curve. 

5. Swing slightly across your body and land on your shooting foot. 


Equipment Needed:

As many balls as you have and a goal. If you don't have a goal then use a wall or fence. 


Exercise Player Can Do:

Practice your technique of the swing without the ball. Once confident and comfortable start taking shots with the ball. Don't rush your swing. As your technique improves your power will improve. Then you can increase your leg speed as your technique gets better and better. 

After straight shots on the goal then set up the balls from different angles to simulate different shooting angles in a game. Have fun and repeat until you are tired!


What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: 

If the ball isn't curving you are striking the middle of the ball. Make sure to strike the outside middle part of the ball. 

If you don't have enough power on your shot you are hitting the ball with too much of the outside of your foot. You still want to strike with the middle part of your laces but just the outside of the ball.
