France and Arsenal legend Thierry Henry says it is important ‘know what you’re going to do’ in the attempt to score while sprinting.
In the video, the 38-year-old has six ways to beat your opponents and goalkeeper while sprinting at full speed.
Among his tips are having a clear vision on what a player wants to do, staying calm when the player is in the box, and freezing the goalkeeper by looking at him.
‘Know what you’re going to do. I like to open up and use my sidefoot to bang the ball into the bottom corner – no matter who I’m playing against, no matter what the situation is, that’s how I’m going to try to finish,’ Henry said.
He also recommends that a player should unbalance opponent and stay composed while analysing the game.
‘Being able to run at full speed while staying composed and avoiding people who are trying to kick you is not an easy thing to do,’ he added.
‘Brazilian Ronaldo could do all that and still deliver an end product. You can have all the physical strengths but you need to be able to get your head up, stay cool and choose the right option.’
