Today’s card came about after watching the Women’s World Cup game yesterday. It was a heart breaking loss, but it did seem like Japan put their hearts on the line. The trust your gut aspect came from my past goalkeeper life. As a goalie you have trust your gut when it comes to the game and especially PKs. There are very specific ways to read a player and have an understanding of where they are going to shoot! You can’t second guess yourself, you can’t even guess… you need to read the player, have an understanding of where they are going and just trust your gut and go for it!
I applied this to soccer, but really you should always trust your gut. Go with what you think is best and just do it!
