In a field study, we conducted a soccer penalty experiment in which players had to detect the goalkeeper's movement during the run-up. We tested subjects under two conditions: the center-looking (perceiving both stimuli peripherally) and the free gaze strategy (foveal gaze on either the ball or the goalkeeper, or saccades). The center-looking strategy was superior when it came to detecting goalkeeper movements; with respect to the number of scored goals, no difference could be detected. Future research should investigate whether appropriate training in the use of the center-looking strategy might lead to a higher number of scored goals.
