The Art of Finishing in Soccer: Soccer Finishing Drills and Secrets to Take Your Game to the Next Level
‘You speak bad of me, I score goals,’

This was a famous line of soccer Italian bad boy, Mario Balotelli.

‘You never get fed up scoring goals,’ said the English Premier League’s all-time leading goal scorer. It’s a good job; Alan Shearer did it 260 times. That other fine English exponent of the art, Gary Lineker, feels the same. ‘I was only interested in scoring goals,’ he said. I wasn’t interested in anything else.’ It is a passion for the little Argentinian master, Lionel Messi. He is still putting the ball away at the highest level at the age of 34. Of course, the South American’s greatest rivals are Brazil. The does not impact on his desire to score. ‘It’s scoring goals that’s great, whether against Brazil or anybody else.’

Set yourself a small test. Without research, time yourself to name twenty great goalkeepers, twenty great defenders, twenty great midfielders and the same for wingers. Then do the same for strikers.

It’s a safe bet that the final category will come easiest to the mind.

What makes the best strikers stand out?

We’ll start with maybe the most important area. The mind of the player. Because if you do not believe you are going to score, cannot control the adrenaline that floods your body the moment the opportunity arises, then you will not be a prolific finisher.

And it is worth reminding readers that whilst a team might only have one or two players who perform up front, all players will from time to time find themselves in a goal scoring position. More so in the fluid game of today, perhaps, than in the past. For some, those opportunities do not come along often; maybe only once every three or four games – for goalkeepers less. Still though, when that rare chance does arise, we need to be able to take it. This book is not just for number nines, it is as much for centre halves, full backs and midfielders. It is for coaches, and lovers of the beautiful game of soccer. A goal is a goal, whoever scores it.

Susie Strickland, Sizzling Striker

Susie Strickland, Sizzling Striker: A fun and entertaining children's book about soccer, football for kids ages 3-5 6-8
Susie Strickland has been kicking a ball around ever since the day she could walk. It is her favorite thing in the whole wide world to do! Susie practices every chance she gets and because she practices so much, she is the best striker in her whole school!

One day, Susie is on her way to school when she gets splashed from head to toe when a boy riding his bicycle past her purposefully rides through a big puddle. He thinks that what he has done is very funny indeed. Susie, needless to say, does not agree.

Later that day, Susie goes to soccer practice as usual. She and her teammates are introduced to a new team member. His name is Spencer and – that’s right – you guessed it…he is the very same boy who splashed her that morning!

Now, the fact that this boy splashed her on purpose on her way to school is bad enough. But then Susie learns something else about him. Not only is he the newest member of her school soccer team, but he is a striker… just like her! Susie is so used to being the best striker in her school. How is she going to handle this new competition?

Game day arrives. Susie’s team is not doing so well and the coach decides to replace her with Spencer. What will happen next? Will Spencer be as good as Susie? Or might he even be a better striker than her? Will Susie be able to handle another player being as good (and possibly even better than) she is? Read on to find out! $1.99 on Kindle.
