    Why, we the goalie, do not stand in the middle of the goal when facing a free kick?

    I would only stand in the middle of the goal when one is facing a free kick that is in the centre of the pitch. Otherwise you are giving the striker a large amount of the goal to shoot at.

    If you are on either side more than the other than the problem is is that the free kick take can just place it on the other side. At least when you are in the middle you don’t have to move as much.

    @cjbuddy. Was interesting to see Hugo Lloris try and second guess where Willian was going to hit the free-kick. He was definitely at fault for the goal.
