Volley Technique (Video)

13 Oct

(Realized too late that I hadn’t recorded the sound for the video; apologies about that.)

This clip is from the US v New Zealand friendly last night (10-11-16).

I realize too that there are plenty of good volleys out there but I just happened to grab this from the US Soccer highlight reel. (And a great save by the keeper.)

Interesting to note too that he doesn’t follow through all the way. I suspect that is because he’s a bit behind the ball (you’ll notice that his knee isn’t over the ball); by not following through, he keeps the ball low. A full follow through there, I suspect, would have skied the ball.
