Soccer Penalty ~ Furthest Point from the Goalkeeper

I use to visit the library a lot and borrow books to help me past time. I came across this book by Pele on how to take a good penalty kick. I can't remember the details but I did remember this... you have the best chance for scoring if you place the ball at the furthest point from the Goalkeeper. This furthest point will be at the 'High-Corner' (which is where the Cross-Bar meets the Left or Right Post). To reach this 'High-Corner', the Goalkeeper will have to jump & stretch at his maximum.... on top of deciding if the ball will go Left or Right.

Furthest Point from the Goalkeeper

There is this danger of NOT being accurate... so practice, practice, practice...
