Some things you must know about shooting.

Hello, everyone, today we share some things you must know about shooting, I hope you like it!

front cover

There are no rules for shooting. The purpose of shooting is not to be beautiful, but to score. If you hear shooting, you think that shooting is limited to your feet. That’s because we have a preconceived concept of shooting. In the past, some strikers that everyone liked, Mueller, Inzaghi and Raul, didn’t shoot well, but they just scored.

Figure 1- Prejudice

This doesn’t mean that we don’t have to pursue technical perfection, we must do it well, because if we really want to shoot, we must score, exert ourselves, turn the corner and shoot the ball where we want to shoot.

Figure 2- Shooting Score

However, we have said the perfect technique countless times. Put our supporting feet next to the ball, head down, tighten the core, pay attention to follow the ball, lock our ankles, and then kick the ball and land, like this.

Figure 3- Perfect Technology

But if we look up like this, or lean back, we will send the ball directly to the moon, which is definitely not what we want.

Figure 4- Don’t lean back

So what’s so special about these strikers mentioned above? They know where the ball is going, which is another form and part of shooting, because in essence, it is why we shoot, and we shoot to score.

Figure 5- What’s so special?

Think about it, if we know where the ball is going, we can shoot it in. Sun Tzu, a great thinker and author of Sun Tzu’s Art of War, said, "If you defeat the enemy without fighting, the good will be good."

Figure 6- Know where the ball is going

This means that we must find a way to achieve our goal instead of struggling like ants on hot bricks.

So whether you like him or not, Ronaldo can always score goals. He doesn’t care about those comments. If we want to win and score goals, look at what these players are doing.

Figure 7- Always scoring goals

Harland has many chances to shoot. He knows how to score goals. What else can we do?

Next, the most important thing is that we should take risks. In some leagues, the goal rate of shooting rebound is as high as 20-25%.

Figure 8- Dare to take risks

This means that if we shoot, although it doesn’t look the best, as long as the ball can pass the first defender, who knows what will happen?

Figure 9- Passing the defender

Rebound ball is difficult for the goalkeeper to predict and react in time. Maybe the ball will bounce in from the knee, back and face. Anyway, we will never know until we try.

Figure 10- Dare to shoot.

Remember, as a striker, we should dare to take risks, and as a defender, we should also dare to take risks, but we should take risks wisely, especially when we are in and around the restricted area, and don’t hesitate to shoot decisively.

Figure 11- Decisive shooting

That’s all for today. Please continue to pay attention to the road of football for more exciting football teaching!

It’s just a good time to smash the ball | When the past becomes a paragraph, I look forward to a good day for China basketball

Poster journalist Zheng Hao reports.
On September 15th, Yi Jianlian’s retirement ceremony, the United Arab League appeared in public view for the last time as an athlete in the least "United Arab League" way. From choking several times to thanking all, it seems that Yi Jianlian spoke the most in public.
Yi Jianlian can also say "talk show"
"When I learned that I was the first speaker tonight, I thought someone must have made a mistake. The first speaker should be the great allen iverson, because I need more practice than him."
"On the Internet, I said that my footsteps are all taught by Gong Xiaobin. Today, I solemnly declare that you are right."
"When I was 9 years old, I told my first coach that I wanted to play basketball."
The above three paragraphs are from the speeches made by Yao Ming when he was inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame, Wang Zhizhi and Hu Weidong at the entrance ceremony of the China Basketball Hall of Fame.
In my impression, Yi Jianlian can’t seem to say such a thing. The most classic quotation left by this big man is the sentence "I invite him to drink Lafite (I can waste him)!" But at the retirement ceremony, Yi Jianlian looked like a different person. From Du Feng’s "Be Harder" to Wang Shipeng’s "Kill Slovenian", from Bater’s "Journey to the West" to Jaco’s "Thank you for coming", Yi Jianlian strung up every teammate present with many stalks, so that this speech was called "talk show" by fans.
These stems include the attitude of the game, the execution of skills and tactics, the characteristics of players and the development of youth basketball. Yi Jianlian spoke out the elements of basketball that he understood by way of talk show.
Yi Jianlian’s Talk Show
Bater, Wang Zhizhi, Yi Jianlian and Yao Ming, when the three "moving Great Walls" and Yi Jianlian formed the "four centers" of China team, Yi Jianlian was held in the C position by Yao Ming, and Wang Zhizhi hugged Bater and Yi Jianlian around him. Yi Jianlian said, "I haven’t felt so young for a long time."
Yao Ming "pressed" Yi Jianlian in the C position.
Whether it was the "China Derby" between the Rockets and the Bucks, or the expectation of China fans to surpass Yao Ming, all these showed the expectation of "Space Easy". "In the past, many people hoped that I could catch up with you or even surpass you. For 21 years, I tried various methods and exhausted various means, and finally I just stayed at 2.13 meters." Yi Jianlian’s response is humorous.
However, when Yi Jianlian tried to pass on the baton, the China men’s basketball team encountered the lowest point in history.
Four years ago and four years later
When Bater, Wang Zhizhi, Yi Jianlian and Yao Ming stand together as retired players, it is the final chapter of an era of China basketball. After the final chapter, where is the sequel? At present, it is unknown.
The final chapter of an era for China men’s basketball team.
Four years ago, in the World Cup, we discussed more technical and tactical issues. Should the center serve the key foul ball? Is it reasonable to switch between attack and defense in overtime when the opponent is absolutely tied? These problems became the key for China men’s basketball team to miss the Olympic Games for the first time.
Four years later, the current coach of the national men’s basketball team, Jorjevich, said that the China men’s basketball team now has no courage to dare to fight with its opponents when it comes to the top teams in Europe.
Gong Xiaobin’s bloody stadium; Liu Yudong took out 10 broken bone specimens from his knee, which was his "medal" after the end of the 2003 season; After Wang Zhizhi led the team to win the championship, his teammates put all the gold medals on his neck; Yi Jianlian and Gasol, who are in full swing, have a muscle collision in the inside; Wang Shipeng kills Slovenian; Sun Yue’s hat Howard … The classic moments of China men’s basketball team were all bought by them desperately.
However, this tradition seems to be lost now.
Let’s look forward to it. Let’s look forward to a good day for the China men’s basketball team as soon as possible.

Summary of the 2018 World Cup: The world football situation is changing, and China football needs to catch up bravely.

  Xinhua News Agency, Moscow, July 15th (Reporter Liu Ning Su Bin) On the 15th, in a downpour, the French team once again held the World Cup high, and the curtain fell on 2018 fifa world cup. France, Belgium, England and other powerful teams have blown up a youth storm, which has impacted the old world football pattern. Facing the ever-changing world football, China football needs to catch up courageously and realize its dream of stepping on the World Cup again as soon as possible.

  Youth storm "funeral"

  Today’s world football is experiencing the replacement of players. Mbappé, the 19-year-old French team who won the Best Rookie Award in this World Cup, won the Golden Boot Award with six goals, and a group of young players, such as Kane, the English captain who is about to turn 25, and Lu Kaku, the Belgian team, who is 25, shine brightly in the World Cup. The post-90s players began to "grab the class and seize the power", the post-80s players gradually withdrew from the stage, and the post-70s players finished their curtain call performance.

  When I set foot on the Russian arena, the average age of the "Gaul Rooster" team was 26 years and 10 days. In the final, it defeated Croatia 4-2 and held the World Cup high again. France, which won the World Cup in 1998, became the second youngest team to win the World Cup after Brazil, which won the World Cup in 1970 (with an average age of 25 years and 5 days).

  Under the impact of the youth storm, faced with more concise and practical techniques and tactics, the traditional strong teams have been overwhelmed, the defending champion Germany stopped the group stage, the last runner-up Argentina was out of the top 16, the 2010 World Cup champion Spain also failed to advance to the top 8, and the "five-star Brazil" was pulled down by the Belgian team in the quarter-finals.

  On the other hand, the weak brigade without strong generals, relying on the tacit cooperation between players, has kicked out the wonderful things that belong to themselves and also belong to the World Cup. The first round of Iceland’s first World Cup group match drew Argentina 1-1; Also in the group stage, even though Panama lost to England by a big score, it still dared to show its sword and scored the team’s first goal in the World Cup.

  Europe is the only one in Asia.

  Today’s world football pattern is changing, with European football continuing to lead, South American football closely following, and Asian and African football trying to catch up.

  After the group match, among the top 16, there are 10 teams in Europe, 4 teams in South America, Mexico as the only fire in North Central America and the Caribbean, 5 teams in Asia, only Japan, and 5 teams in Africa.

  With the faster competition and stronger confrontation, the differences between players’ individual abilities are narrowing, and the gap between strong teams is also narrowing. In the round of 16, Russia eliminated Spain, Croatia defeated Denmark, and England won Colombia, all of which went through overtime and finally decided the outcome through a cruel penalty shootout. Croatia also staged a penalty shootout in the quarter-finals, narrowly beating Russia. In the semi-final, Croatia suffered its third overtime in this tournament and sent England home 2-1.

  In this World Cup, although Asian football as a whole has not made a breakthrough, its performance is still remarkable. South Korea beat defending champion Germany 2-0 in the final group match, which was a big surprise. After winning a 2-0 lead against Belgium in the round of 16, Japan still fought against its opponents. Although it lost 2-3 in the end, it won respect for its courage to challenge and struggle. In addition, the Iranian team drew the 2016 European Championship champion Portugal in the group stage, and the Saudi team also won a victory in the final group stage.

  After the round of 16, six European teams advanced. Next, with Uruguay and Brazil, the only teams left in South America, going out one after another, the top four seats were all occupied by European teams, and the World Cup turned into the "European Cup".

  In the third place battle, Belgium beat England 2-0 and got the best result in the team’s history. Previously, the best result of "European Red Devils" was the fourth place in 1986.

  Although it failed to achieve its desire to win the championship, the Croatian team, which won the runner-up, also achieved the best result in history, and modric, the core of the team, won the Golden Globe Award.

  VAR is eye-catching and "the hand of God" is hard to reproduce.

  Today’s world football is in an era of change. The application of new technology makes the game more fair. The VAR (Video Referee Assistant) used in the World Cup makes it difficult for Diego Maradona’s "Hand of God" to reappear.

  The biggest change in this World Cup is the introduction of VAR. Thanks to the intervention of scientific and technological means, every moment in the game can be recorded in a panoramic view. With VAR as a guarantee, referees can not only hold a more open attitude towards the scale of players’ physical confrontation, but also greatly reduce the possibility of missing and misjudging.

  However, some football people who have reservations believe that the use of VAR disrupts the rhythm of the game and reduces the suspense and charm of football.

  "The penalty is fair, but the question is who decides the game. Is it the referee on the lawn or the person in the’ little black room’? VAR will make football lose its charm. " After the match between Australia and Denmark, Danish coach Hareide, who suffered a loss, had no objection to the penalty awarded by the video assistant, but he still couldn’t help but say something.

  According to the statistics of FIFA, in the first 62 matches, the judges watched 19 VAR replays and corrected 16 incorrect judgments.

  FIFA President infantino said on 13th that the use of VAR improved the referee’s penalty accuracy from 95% to 99.2%, "16 penalties were changed, and 16 wrong decisions became 16 correct decisions".

  In the final on 15th, VAR once again became the focus on the field. The referee turned to VAR in the first half and awarded the French team a penalty. With this penalty, the "Gaul Rooster", who won a 2-1 lead, then took control of the situation on the field and finally won the championship with 4-2.

  Russia handed in satisfactory answer sheet, FIFA president praised it

  The curtain of the World Cup in Russia fell, and 64 games went smoothly. Russia fulfilled the goal of "showing a new and enthusiastic Russia to the world" when bidding for the World Cup in 2010.

  Russia’s promotion to the quarter-finals inspired the whole of Russia. According to a poll data released by the All-Russian Social Public Opinion Research Center, a Russian polling agency, on the 12th, the performance of the Russian football team in this World Cup made the Russian people feel proud, happy and respected.

  Hosting the World Cup has benefited Russia a lot economically. Devall Covic, Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the World Cup in Russia, said that the comprehensive benefits of the World Cup for Russia are expected to reach 15 billion US dollars.

  The World Cup has also become a window for the world to know about Russia, where fans from all countries (regions) gather together. FIFA President infantino said: "The Russian World Cup is the best in history. The World Cup has changed the world’s view of Russia, and every fan has experienced the enthusiasm of Russians. "

  China element shines in the World Cup, China football needs to catch up bravely.

  Although China was a flash in the pan in the 2002 World Cup, the element of China was never absent. From China manufacturing to China enterprises and China brands, and then to China service, China elements once again shine in the World Cup.

  Come to Russia, "Made in China" can be seen everywhere. China enterprises have made all-out efforts to become a decisive force in the FIFA sponsors’ phalanx. Wanda Group has become a global partner with seven companies including Coca-Cola, Adidas and Hyundai Motor. Mengniu, VIVO and Hisense, together with McDonald’s and Budweiser Beer, became sponsors of the World Cup; Enterprises such as Yadea, Zhi Yi Jing and Di Pai are regional sponsors.

  Inside and outside the Russian World Cup, there are more and more elements of China. However, it is regrettable that China failed to appear in this World Cup. After all, the team is the real protagonist of this world football feast.

  In the face of the ever-changing world football, China football needs to continue to reform, learn the advanced techniques and tactics of world football with an open mind, and "please come in and go out". It is very important to grasp the youth training, lay a good foundation, work hard, make contributions for a long time, and March forward courageously along the road suitable for their own development, so that China’s dream of stepping on the World Cup again will not be far away.

$170 million in 3 years, the first in the blocked shot league! Don’t be proud, thanks to your teammate James.

The biggest attraction of the NBA off-season is player trading and contract renewal. Every year, there are many high-priced contract renewals, and this year is no exception. For example, the Timberwolves renewed Edwards in advance for five years and the Grizzlies renewed Bain in advance for five years and 207 million dollars. The purpose of this early contract renewal is obvious. In the next few years, this player will be the core of team building. Of course, some team management also has their own considerations, and only three-year contracts will be given to the core players of the team. For example, Green of Warriors, after all, is affected by age, and it is very likely that Green’s ability will be seriously degraded after three seasons. At present, there is a potential early renewal of the contract with the Lakers’ thick eyebrows. As one of the cores of the team, if the thick eyebrows complete the renewal before the start of training camp, they can get a contract with a maximum of 170 million US dollars for three years. The reason why they have not reached an intention so far, the Lakers management still has their own concerns!

The thick eyebrows of the champion’s debut can be called the genius of the insider. They can not only turn the world upside down in the restricted area, but also have dribbling and shooting like guards. The performance of the park in 2020 is a classic masterpiece of the peak thick eyebrows. In the park, Thick Eyebrow is a super efficient and comprehensive scorer, and his statistics are crazy. He averaged 27.7 points in the playoff, shooting 57% and shooting 38% from three-pointers. In the second game of the Western Conference finals, he won the first championship ring in his career, and the Lakers were finally on an equal footing with the Celtics. The boss was not stingy. But after that season, Thick Eyebrows never showed their talent in the playoffs, but they got continuous injuries and consumed James year after year. Until last season, Thick Eyebrows seemed to find themselves in the park again, averaging 25.9 points, 12.5 rebounds and 2 blocks per game, and fully demonstrated their inside power against Grizzlies and Warriors in the playoffs, and finally the Lakers returned to the stage of the Western Conference finals.

As for the Lakers’ delay in giving thick eyebrows this contract extension, there should be two concerns.First, the thick eyebrows did not prove that he had broken away from the injury.In the past three seasons, Thick Eyebrow has played 130 games in the regular season, so it is said that Thick Eyebrow has not been selected for the best defensive team and the best team in the past three years, and even has not been selected for the All-Star team in the last two seasons. You should know that Thick Eyebrow’s game performance has almost filled the data column. He is the first player in the league with steals and blocked shots in the past ten years, but it is a pity that he was excluded because of attendance. Although last season was the season with the highest attendance rate in the last three seasons, it was less than 60 games, even the same as James, who was eight years older than himself. Therefore, this is one of the Lakers’ great worries. If the heavy eyebrows can’t keep healthy and fall off the chain in the playoffs, the Lakers will have no way out.

The second worry is that James can play for a few years.How many years can James play is a hot topic in recent years, but last season’s playoff performance proved that James can play for at least another three years, but the key question is whether James can stay in the Lakers. As early as last season, James said that he would not consider retiring for the time being and would wait until Brownie entered the league to fight alongside him, no matter which team. Once James chooses to leave the Lakers at the end of next season, the Lakers will become a single-core team. It is more difficult to win the championship than to ascend to heaven. Thick eyebrows have no ability to become the boss of the team. In the seven seasons he played for Pelican, Thick Eyebrows only entered the playoffs twice, and the best result was the Western Conference semifinals, so it is naturally impossible to expect Thick Eyebrows to reshuffle themselves, not to mention that after James left, the Lakers will definitely reshuffle their cards, making it even more difficult to win the championship.

No matter what kind of worry, once it happens, it is enough for the Lakers management to drink a pot. It takes a lot of young capital to get a heavy eyebrow from the pelican trade. If you don’t pray for another Lakers dynasty, you should at least win another championship, otherwise the Lakers will lose blood. I admit that Thick Eyebrow is a player with good offensive and defensive skills in the forefront of the league, but without teammates like James, his dominance will be greatly reduced. Coupled with the impact of injuries, Thick Eyebrow’s three-pointers last season have disappeared, and his fast-break and difficult air-catching abilities have regressed with the naked eye. It is a bloody lesson that the Western Conference finals were swept by the Nuggets. Without outside threats, Jokic’s defense could not be mobilized, which brought great difficulties to teammates’ storming. Next season is a crucial season for the Lakers. The management may even take the risk of jumping out of the contract and consider renewing the contract after the end of next season. If you want to stay with the Lakers, the heavy eyebrows must come up with a better state in the new season, one is to stay healthy, and the other is to reproduce the dominance in the park, otherwise they are likely to be swept out by the Lakers!

All sides support Shuila, and I’m afraid it will depreciate again in the future. This is the Lakers.

Suddenly, there were more topics about Russell of the Lakers. ESPN reporter A- Smith bluntly said that Russell’s annual salary should be at least 25 million dollars, and Beverly even said that Russell would lose money if he didn’t sign a contract of 100 million dollars. However, Russell only reached a contract of 37 million dollars for two years this summer.

Russell’s contract renewal with the Lakers caused a sensation as soon as it was exposed. Before that, Russell insisted on paying hundreds of millions of dollars, which was unimaginable. But the question is, so many people support Russell, but the fact is that Russell is only willing to sign this two-year and 37 million contract? The reality is very cruel. After a baptism in the playoffs, Russell’s performance made his worth plummet, and no team in the market was willing to offer him a contract, let alone hundreds of millions of contracts.

Russell’s presence on the Lakers’ guard line has complicated the work of others, so it is necessary for the backcourt players who partner with him to share the defense for him, and even the whole team should make up for his loophole. Russell’s attack is also unstable, and wave shots often appear, which is one of the reasons why he was abandoned by the Lakers in the playoffs last season. The Lakers left him mainly in the hope that he could share the organizational pressure for James, with multiple holding points but without much hope.

This summer, the Lakers have done a good job in signing, bringing in many important role players, especially Vincent in the backcourt, which is definitely a threat to Russell. Vincent is a defender who has been certified in the playoffs and played in the finals. After the smooth running-in with the Lakers in the new season, it is highly probable that Russell’s position will be disintegrated, so I am afraid that Shuila will be a substitute in the new season, so it will be a new round of depreciation to meet Shuila.

In this era of defender blowout, it is not difficult to find a point guard of this level, and the defender is not the winner of the championship. A strong front line-up is the basis for winning the championship. Besides, Shui La, a point guard, doesn’t belong to him at all in the playoffs, so so much solidarity is more like an insult to Shui La. After all, he is really worthless.

The last Lakers point guard named Russell dropped directly from the top salary of more than 40 million yuan to the basic salary. Although there are reasons for your love and desire, you can’t deny the influence of the Lakers. Now it’s not easy for Russell to renew his contract with the Lakers, and it’s reasonable for his value to fall again. At present, the most ideal solution for Russell to keep his value is trading, but his future is also confused.

Peninsula Sports Ligue 1: Manchester City is the best team in the world, and we don’t need to spend a wonderful season with him.

Even if Argentine World Cup champion Alexis Mike alister arrives from Brighton, Liverpool should still sign another midfielder. As a breakthrough prospect of La Liga season, Veiga has extraordinary physical and technical attributes, as well as versatility and industrialization. He also has an advantage on the offensive end, and his willingness to move into the restricted area is excellent-as shown by his < > goals in 32 La Liga games.

Although Vega’s influence may have diminished in recent weeks (not uncommon for a 20-year-old debut season), it is reported that he has a release clause of 400,000 euros, which will make him a real deal.

Retire after success? If Manchester City wins the Triple Crown! Guardiola may leave Manchester City.

Guardiola hinted in an interview that if Manchester City wins the treble this season, he may leave.

Guardiola may leave Manchester City.

If Guardiola’s team can win the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup this season, it will make history.

They are currently at the top of the Premier League, and the other two games have also reached the finals. All three events have a good chance of winning.

If so, his Manchester City will become the second team in the history of English men’s football to complete the triple crown after Manchester United in 1999.

This will put the Spaniard in a position where the club has almost nothing to gain. When this was put forward, he told reporters to ask him after the team finished the treble.

In an interview with Sky Sports, Guardiola said: "First of all, we must win the game. Then you can ask me after the game and I will tell you my feelings and thoughts. "

Later, the Manchester City manager was asked if this matter had ever appeared in his mind in any way. He replied: "Of course, we still need three games, and each event needs to be completed. Will you tell me that our city rival Manchester United will be an easy game? "

Manchester City will face city rivals Manchester United in the FA Cup final on June 3rd and Serie A Bamba Inter Milan in the Champions League final on June 10th.

"They don’t think they are the most promising team against the Italian team," he continued. "I’m thinking about it. Of course, if we achieve our goal, I will tell you. "

If Manchester City can beat Chelsea on Sunday, the Premier League title may be won in advance. If Arsenal lose away at Nottingham Forest, the championship may be decided one day in advance.

This will be Manchester City’s fifth Premier League champion in the past six seasons, marking their dominant position in the Premier League football field in the past five years.

However, Guardiola failed to win the Champions League while coaching Manchester City. Some people think that if he wins the Champions League successfully, he will leave the club.

After beating Real Madrid and Bayern Munich in the last round, Manchester City is regarded as the most promising team for next month’s match with Inter Milan.

The team easily defeated Spanish team Real Madrid on Tuesday night and won the second leg of the Champions League semi-final with a score of 4-0.

Bernardo Silva scored twice, together with goals from Manuel Acangi and Julian Alvarez, and finally defeated the defending European champions 4-0.

Bo Yu said sports: Premier League Rome is considering hiring De Zerbi to replace Mourinho, but Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea are also.

On the other hand, the defense has obviously regressed. The opponent’s shots per possession increased by 27%(0.10), and the average xG was similar. The number of goals per game in Manchester City increased from 0.7 to 1.0. Whether it’s because Guardiola tried his staff to make the best use of Harland-which, among other things, led to the bench of full-back Joao Cancelo and eventually loaned it to Bayern-or because of the conscious retreat of the World Cup in terms of pressure and efforts (Manchester City players played more time in Qatar than any other club), Manchester City’s pressure was more passive and ineffective. Excellent opponents are particularly comfortable and productive for them: in eight games against the top six teams in the Premier League, Manchester City scored a goal in 13 shots (81.10 times per game), worth 11.6 xG.

Please note that Manchester City also scored 19 goals and scored 13 points in these eight games, but Manchester City did not control the situation as usual. Put some terrible luck into a close game-in a game decided by 1-2 goals, the average score per game is 0.1 (the average score of the other four teams in England is 2.1)-and we can see how Manchester City has left the door for Arsenal to break in at present. This also brought RB Leipzig back to the first leg of their last 16 Champions League (final 1-1 draw), and there is still some work to be done before they can advance next week.
