    soccer terms

    Is there a name for the kind of shot which makes the ball move on the ground?
    The player kicks the ball hard, but the ball rolls on the ground. Is there a name for that kind of shot? Ground shot?

    What if the ball flies in the air? The kick sends the ball flying. Is there a name for that kind of shot?

    I thought 'air shot' might work, but now I wonder if 'air shot' does not mean a kick that misses the ball altogether or a kick that is an imitation of a real shot but that is taken when there is no ball (same logic as in 'air guitar').

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: soccer terms

    I assume it really depends on which sport we're talking about. Are we talking about football/soccer?

    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Re: soccer terms

    Yes, Boris. That is mentioned in the title of my thread. But I should have mentioned it in the text as well.
