Mike Toshack the Houston Dynamo goalkeeping coach gives an insight on how to setup a keeper drill to get them ready for a game.
"I made a goal about four yard wide, and that forms a small goal from the one disc cone and the actual post of the goal. What I did was have them play a small pass back with their feet, and then just quickly get into that small goal, second goal, for the shot. The shots that I gave them are volleys, balls tha move, balls that dip. I just tried to give them a different look, to give them a feel of what they might see in the match."
In the modern game of soccer, the keeper has to be confident with both his feet and his hands.
Key aspects of the drill:
Place two cones 5 yards in front of goal, 4 yards apart
