Chip (or) Boom ball kick
This kick requires exceptional power, skill, timing and precision - yes, all of these along with some good luck. Many players aimlessly kick the ball long but there are very few who score with such kicks.
We have a good boom ball kicker in Xabi Alonso, who has time and again proved that his kicks aren't a flash in the pan but brilliantly executed ones.
What is the 'boom ball' kick? - This is a long distance kick (can be as long as 70-80 meters away from the goal). To try the kick, you need to keep an eye on the goal-keeper's movement and when he's out-of-position surprise him by lobbing the ball into the goal.
If you're a physics student, there's a good chance you might be able to convert this.
