How to Shoot the Soccer Ball with Accuracy and Power

Do you want to shoot a soccer ball with power and accuracy? A few players, including the Portuguese captain and star, Cristiano Ronaldo,  are famous for this very act. When it comes to shooting the ball, you can either be shooting it when it’s dead, or while it’s moving. Shooting the ball when it’s dead is totally different as compared to a moving ball. Therefore, you need to learn both the techniques one by one. Moreover, you can either use the inner side of your foot, your toe or the outer side of your foot in order to shoot the ball in both these cases.

    In order to shoot the ball with the outer side of the foot while it’s running, you simply knock the ball forward and right when you think the time is right, simply repeat what you did in step two. Put the non-shooting foot in line with the ball and use the outside of your foot to shoot the ball. Make sure that you lift your non-shooting foot in the air so you can add more power to your shot.
