Well I think that penalty shooting has nothing to do with a luck, as if your target is out of reach of the goalkeeper then he can’t do nothing about it. So I believe that it’s all about setting two or three regular high targets which narrows the concentration effort while practicing as well and brings more self confidence when performing the actual penalty kick. And there is a mental training which includes the visualization of the target and the movement of the player, rather then focusing on the goalkeeper as a barrier. Loud noises, people jumping around and behind the goal, changing the colors of the background are all good ways to improve the narrow external concentration.
