I'm trying to put together a research project on the soccer penalty
kick, and need information regarding forces acting upon the ball. I
need figures concerning impact forces, lift, speed of
the soccer ball after a straight-on approach instep drive (coming
off the foot and at the time it passes the goal line), coef. of
friction of grass, coef of restitution of the foot/soccer shoe unit.
And any other pertinent or related research.

Thanks for your help.
