Chip From Distance

When the goalkeeper is far enough away from the net, chipping from distance is a great scoring technique to use. It involves striking the ball just above the toes and very low to create extra spin, while lifting the ball high into the air with the right amount of power-so the shot doesn't fall short or go over the net. The quicker you kick, the faster the spin you can create. Players who have the vision to chip can maximize their chances of getting the ball in the goal.

Then kick with a smooth stroke and let the momentum come from having a firm foot.
