This is the moment your team really needs you

The last defender turns away to protect herself. This allows an easy shot to result in a score. This is common in girls soccer. Boys, you know it is common in your games as well.

To prevent this, train the mind to remember that it just doesn't hurt that much to get hit with the ball. I know of very few "deaths by soccer ball". Well, actually, I know of none.

Protect the goal. Stop the ball. You know you want to be a hero at least for a minute. That is why you are playing in the first place.
