Not really, since the presence of the goalkeeper can make the target for the kicker much smaller if the defender guesses correctly which side the kicker is aiming, says University of California neuroscientist Don L. Jewett in New Scientist. But if the behavior of either the kicker or goalkeeper becomes predictable, then an advantage can be gained -- not a "guaranteed" goal or save but a better chance of one.
To prevent this advantage, both kicker and goalkeeper need to choose a side at random, not easily done in the human brain. Also, goalkeepers may learn to read small giveaway movements of some kickers.
"To be truly random, perhaps coaches could flip a coin and then send an order to the kicker, and do likewise for the goalkeeper," Jewett says.

Dr. Don Jewett, professor emeritus at the University of California, San Francisco, also was impressed with his treatment from Dr. Rea in the late 1970s.
Dr. Jewett, who was then on the faculty of the university's orthopedic surgery department, was found to be a "universal reactor," meaning he was sensitive to everything.
He followed Dr. Rea's advice and ripped out his carpet to remove potential irritants. He also changed his diet.
Dr. Jewett returned to work wanting to do research that proved that low levels of chemicals were affecting people's health. But he conducted a study - published in The New England Journal of Medicine in 1990 - that showed that testing procedures for food sensitivities used by clinical ecologists like Dr. Rea failed to work.
"I think that the symptoms are real, but the diagnoses and treatments that are offered using chemicals and foods as causative agents are probably misdirected or inappropriate based on the science that I know," he said. Dr. Jewett now attributes his symptoms to stress and said they cleared after he worked through a midlife crisis.
