Summary, etc.:
Defending a big net with just a pair of thick gloves is a hard task, but many keepers are able to go an entire game without giving up a goal. This book puts readers into the penalty area as keepers try to keep a clean sheet for their team. Just like the players on the pitch, readers will get examples of hands-on experience as keepers bat away curling volleys and pick the right side of the net to dive toward on penalty kicks. With expert analysis and insight, readers learn how keepers defend corner kicks and help the defense in front of them work together to fend off attacks.
