Soccer shot



People who are new to soccer almost always begin kicking the ball with their toe.  It seems like the best way to shoot because of how much power you are able to gain.  What people don't realize is the control and accuracy that is lost when this happens.  The best way to hit a ball for both power and accuracy is with the inside of your foot because of the major increase in surface area you are hitting the ball with.  Kicking a ball with your toe makes it much more open to have spin that may be unwanted.  Striking the ball anywhere but the center will cause either top spin, side spin or back spin and you often have little control.  When you use more surface area with the inside of your foot you are able to get these same motions but with much more control as it becomes less likely of a miss hit.
