I want to take you through this article that's going to be simply how to chip a soccer ball I get a lot of questions what's the correct fundamentals for doing this how can I do it properly. I want to be able to take those free kicks and just kind of chip them into space over top of the wall and stuff like that so let me take you through kind of the basic fundamentals of what you need to do and again like I tell you in just about every article make sure you're practicing right and left foot.
Basic fundamentals of chipping a soccer ball is you really need to think in terms this is what I do especially when I have to teach my other leg how to do things.
When I was younger I think in terms of golf you know when you have a pitching wedge and you’re just coming through the bottom of the ball just to get it lift that's exactly what you need to do so instead of hitting the ball in the middle.
obviously you're going to hit it on the bottom of the ball and kind of scoop underneath it you want to scoop all the way through where people mess up a lot of times is they are not really sure where I guess what area of their foot to get under the ball and you really just want to hit it and kind of scoop it with your toes.
It’s going to be the thinnest area but you're going to get a good lift on it too. When you're going and approaching the ball again it's just like when you're doing passing plant your foot about a foot to the right you know.
if your left footed if your opposite direction you're going right footed then you're going to be playing the ball you know just a nice foot to the left and again what you want to do is make sure you drive through a lean back because that's going to create that lift.
I like to go kind of further away but when you're when you're working on your chipping you want to just get a flat backspin you don't want to get this spin that's curving we're going to get into that and when we're talking about bending balls and curving balls around a wall or any of those dip curves that you see David Beckham does a lot for shots or Cristiano Ronaldo.
but what you want to do is just get that flat backspin at least you know you're going straight and it's going pretty good and what you want to do is just lean back get your arms out .
