1. Precise first-time shot

The art of shooting is a skill that can elevate a player to legendary status, such as Ronaldo and Klose. When defenders face these marksmen, they will not giving them more than a second, sometimes even half a second, to react and make moves. But they can still score a lot of goals under such high pressure.

2. Power = Precision sometimes

Frankly speaking, a powerful shot proves more effective than a finesse shot aimed at the corner, as the sheer strength behind these shots, despite not having the most intricate angles, makes it challenging for goalkeepers to save even if they correctly predict the direction, owing to the sheer speed of the shot.

As the power of shooting is closely associated with the strength of the thigh muscles, to enhance shooting power, it may be necessary to engage in off-field training aimed at strengthening the muscles of the thighs.

But we should also notice that engaging in excessive training to increase thigh muscle strength can lead to a cumbersome stride, resulting in a decrease in dribbling precision and speed. Therefore, the simplest, most effective, and non-detrimental training method is squats.

3. Curve Balls Shooting Techniques 

Mastering various shooting techniques is also key to improving goal-scoring efficiency. Therefore, it is essential to acquire skills in curve shots, outside-of-the-foot shots, and even toe pokes. However, in the most games, curved shots are the ones frequently employed, because outside-of-the-foot shots and toe pokes, due to the difficulty in ensuring accuracy, are less commonly used. Therefore, in the limited time available, it is more efficient to focus on training for curved shots.
