Can I add something aswell? I used to be a great shooter, but for 7-8 months I was injured I didin't shoot 1 ball and I obviously disimproved a lot, was contacting the ball in the wrong spots, and my shots lacked the power that had always been mine.
I obviously like to score goals and such, so I started reading guides and watching videos all over the internet to re-learn how to shoot.
"Lock you angle"
"Approach the ball from 120 degree angle"
" Keep your shoulders and hips pointing such way"
For 2 weeks, I was out in the fields "pointing my hips such way", "putting my supporting foot exactly parallel to the ball" and focusing on all these details guides and tutorials tell you to do. Seeing little progress I got pissed, and when I'm worried about something my mind keeps thinking about it and eventually solutions pop in my mind, like most people.
I remembered the way I learnt the first time, and how I got so good, was just by shooting, just by doing drills, just by trying to place the ball in such place, and forgetting about the rest. I only focused on hitting it with the instep, and putting it in the corners where I placed a cone, and getting to 30 perfect shots in the corner. Been improving inmensely since that day, the day I finally learnt to let go of all those technique pointers, and just tried to learn how human's learn best, by just doing it.
You'll realize that by just focusing on power, and accuracy, and remembering to hit it with the instep, (after the 15th shot its a bit tender so you don't miss it), all those pointers people gave you start correcting themselves alone, but you gotta learn it the right way.
I use to be a kid you didn't want to give space after the 3/4th of the field because odds said I would nail a shot, i'm finally getting back to that point(still gotta work hard) cause I learn't to forget all the little details and focused on what I cared more, placing the ball with power and acurracy exactly where I wanted to. The rest comes with it. Fact.
Naturally I learnt the first time, naturally i'll learn now that I forgot to over this long break. After you see succesful shots, you automatically hit the ball in the spot you did before, with the part of the foot you did before, and with the same power, it happens naturally, just practice!
