Abstract
When facing penalty kicks, expert goalkeepers can ensure that they dive to the correct goal location if they wait until ball flight. However, in doing so, goalkeepers are likely to move too late for ball interception. Alternatively, goalkeepers can move early and anticipate based on the actions of the penalty taker. We examined how elite futsal goalkeepers adapt to these conflicting spatiotemporal demands by examining their attempts to save penalty kicks taken from 10 m and 6 m. Goalkeepers prioritized moving early to arrive in sufficient time to intercept the ball, although such action coincided with a decrease in anticipation accuracy during 6-m compared to 10-m kicks. These findings are important for the study of perception and action during social coordination (as exemplified by 2 opponents in sport situations) as the use of video or virtual reality (VR)- technologies in research fail to safeguard the temporal nature of real-time interactions.
