Strike Like Salah!

Liverpool hero Mohamed Salah has been absolutely tearing it up this season! Here are some tips and tricks, plus a sick drill to create space to get a shot away – just like the Egypt hero!

TIP 1: CREATING SPACE

The Liverpool attacker is an absolute master at creating space to shoot in a packed penalty box! To do this like Mohamed Salah, use your touch direction to move opponents away from the space you want to move into, then bust out the Inside Chop to move into the space you’ve created!

TIP 2: BALL STRIKING

Look up at the goal before you shoot, so you know where the goalkeeper is positioned and the corner you want to shoot into. Now zoom in on the ball, strike it using your furthest foot from the defender and smash the ball into the corner – just like the lethal Egyptian maestro does!

TRAINING GROUND

Now practise the inside chop by watching the video above!

STEP 1

Touch the ball diagonally forwards with the outside of your right foot.

STEP 2

Now, fake to shoot with your right foot and cut the ball back with the inside of the same foot.

STEP 3

Repeat steps one and two with your left foot. Continue the sequence using both feet alternately.
