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.
