it wouldn't hurt. What you want to do though, is find a wall, and draw some targets on it. Make sure you are using good technique and try to hit the targets with the inside and laces of your foot...make sure you start the ball off differently too. Eg, do 50 dead balls, 50 where the ball is rolling t...
