Incidents in the penalty area are critical. They may lead to a PK, a canceled goal, or a controversial decision because of the proximity to the goal. But even if there are 12-15 players inside the penalty area, don’t forget there are other players, too. Watch the video clip below.

Look around. Pay attention to where other players are. Anticipate the next play. What are the options that the attacking team has?
