Who is Goalkeeper

A key defensive strategy is tackling. A stopper executes a block tackle by placing her foot on the ball as the attacker attempts to dribble past. A sliding tackle consists of launching forward so that the foot makes contact with the ball, knocking it from the opponent’s control. Stoppers must be aggressive enough to perform hard tackles but also must be disciplined enough to avoid recklessly attacking an opponent, which puts the whole team at risk of a penalty.
