Cleats by Bill Hinds for May 03, 2002
Mr. Basset: Kids, when you're the goalie and you're rolling the ball to your teammate, it's just like bowling. Take the ball straight back from your target line... ...And release, laying the ball smoothly on the ground, finishing with a high follow-through on the target line, and your thumb up. Hmm... Didn't get much break on the ball. I don't think the field is properly oiled. Coach Nordling: You kind of want to roll it straight in soccer.
