Watch two recent goals including a stunning 40 yard lob and Panenka penalty from Manchester City’s talented Taylor Richards.
What does Panenka mean?
In association football, the Panenka is a technique used in penalty kick-taking in which the player, instead of kicking the ball toward the left or right corner of the goal, gives a subtle touch underneath the ball, causing it to rise and fall within the centre of the goal thus deceiving the goalkeeper.
Who is Taylor Richards?
Taylor is a highly rated midfielder, who was signed as a 14 year old from Fulham FC. Now aged 16 the England U17 international has developed well since joining City, adding goals and creative play in key areas to his confidence, skill and ability on the ball.
Watch previous FFDTV video clips involving Taylor which indicate his talent including another Panenka penalty, nutmegs, free-kicks and dribbling.
