Goalkeepers prevent goals, but they can also help you score them.
A goalkeeper might be the last line of defense, but they’re also the first line of attack. That’s because a solid punt from the goalie can help their team score on the other goal. Punting is a good option when a goalie doesn’t have a defender to distribute to, or they’re unsure they can maintain possession. Instead, punting it high and long gives their teammates time to position themselves to receive the ball.
Here’s what you do: Hold the ball with one or two hands directly in front of you. Take two to three steps, swing your kicking leg from the hip and drop the ball — don’t toss it — onto the foot as you strike with the laces. This will give the ball plenty of height and distance.
