Tomas Rosicky and directional bias

It happened once. Then it happened again. And when it happened a half dozen times it appeared to be a pattern. I am referring to what I saw a few months ago in the game against Liverpool that Arsenal won. Tomas Rosicky, Arsenal’s gadfly midfielder who very few would call unproductive, misses a goal as the ball skips just wide to the right of Pepe Reina and the goalpost. It was close. Now in numerous iterations, Rosicky takes shots from the top of the box and it misses, always hooking a bit to the goal’s right. There maybe a biomechanical explanation, kicking the ball with his instep or he has a directional bias (constant error), that becomes evident in the absence of visual information (Rosicky loses sight of the goal).
