Master your finishing: Power shooting

Add some heavy artillery to your firepower with this long range shooting drill from the Nike Academy

Ever imagined reproducing Wayne Rooney's spectacular volley against Newcastle United at Old Trafford in 2005?

Let's refresh your memory. The Manchester United striker pounced on Peter Ramage's headed clearance to fire a ferocious volley past a helpless Shay Given. If the goal wasn't there the ball would still be moving.

More after the break

The Nike Academy's head coach, Jimmy Gilligan, has devised a drill that replicates this scenario to calibrate your long distance shooting skills for a second phase strike.

Prepare to pull back the trigger and fire.
