The Perfect Psychology to Penalty Taking?

February 25, 2014

So is there such thing as the perfect penalty and doing it consistently ?

Well the start don’t rush, Place the ball properly on the spot and take a breath while focusing on where you intend to shoot, before starting the run-up.

Taking a deep breath is likely to ease feelings of  anxiety and provides a temporal cue to ensure that sufficient processing of target-related information is enabled.

Trust your technique and routine – pick a spot and hit it.

Celebrate! It will help your team-mates who have to take the subsequent penalty kicks

By examining video footage of successful and unsuccessful penalty performance it is possible to determine behaviors that appear to be more productive than others.

For example, players who take less than one second to place the ball on the penalty spot score on about 58% of their penalties whereas those who take longer score on about 80% of their penalties.

There have been many high-profile players that have succumbed to the pressures of the penalty kick. Think of Roberto Baggio or John Terry. Indeed, penalties, especially penalty-shoot-outs, are high pressure affairs that are often game and season-defining events

“He’s unbelievable – he’s one of the greatest of all time
-Thierry Henry

-Arsène Wenger

“If he was playing with me, I would have scored so many more.”
- Pele

“My toughest opponent? Scholes of Manchester. He is the complete midfielder.”

“His technique is unique.”
- Diego Maradona
