Pretend you're a forward, and get the ball in the box. A defender is closing in as you turn and touch the ball towards goal. He sticks out a leg to poke away the ball, but misses. His leg is now stuck directly in your path to the ball and the goal.
A: Move forward, initiating contact with the leg, falling over it in an attempt to draw a penalty kick?
B: Try to jump the leg and catch up to the ball in an attempt to score?
Explain your choice. Also, would any outside factors influence your decision, or would you make the same choice every time, in every situation?
