Free Kick or spot kick is very important in soccer game. A lot of goal scored in free kicks now a day. Some of great free kick takers who are scoring a lot of goals in their game. Some name of great free kick takers now-a-days are Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Coutinho, Neymar, Luis Suarez.
Today we're going to learn how to bend the ball like no other than the man himself David Beckham. In my opinion David Beckham is the master of the side foot free-kick. Today I want to try and show you this technique so that you can do it yourself at home.
first up there is three rules before taking these free kick. If you're wearing a number that number has to be either twenty three or number seven or number thirty-two. You must be wearing added s boots simple as that do your hair like a David Beckham style .Just kidding !
Free kick Like Beckham | Bend It Like Him
The first step that David Beckham takes when he has a free-kick he puts the ball down. Takes roughly seven steps back six to seven steps. This is how we start this run-up. You roughly take the angle that David Beckham takes when he's approaching his ball is a 90 degree angle.
He approaches it almost straight on the goal to his left using the right foot. Now more commonly people approach him with their three kids to come at an angle about 45 degrees . Its generally down to what feels most comfortable for yourself but in this instance I'm talking about David Beckham's technique which we're trying to learn today.
As he approaches the ball at a 90 degree angle with the goal face into his left the next step Quebec was free-kick. This is run up now as he starts running you see that right towards the end he almost jumps into the ball with this final step.
Next part that David Beckham does then is technique as he his leg back now basically what that means is he's about to strike the ball already he's loaded up this energy by bringing the leg all the way up to his butt cheek.
this is what gives him the power when it goes through so if you can imagine that if I strike the ball and I'll come closer my leg only starts from there and comes through the amount of power that I generate will be a lot less than if I bring my leg all the way back through .
All the way there so that's what Beckham does very well as he brings his leg all the way up to generate that power and it gives that fast motion that will allow the speed and the depth to take place.
that we've covered these three points. The first one the approach the second the jump step. The third the leg the fourth one that Beckham does in his technique. He's coming up to the ball he tries to get his left shoulder completely out the way. What he's mastered is he's able to get his arm all the way out the way in his chest already facing the goal because that's where he's kicking it.
that's how he gets the power when he's sitting his free-kick now if we're talking about the part of the foot that Beckham uses when he's hitting his free kicks it's also dependent on where he's wanting to put his free-kick.
For example if he wants to put his free-kick over the wall and try and bend it into the top corner. There he would like to use more of the instep here called sort of the toe area and as he's striking the ball and getting that curve the ball will curve and roll off the rest of his foot .
He strikes it here makes the point of contact here and then the ball rolled down the boot and this is what creates the curve and the power.
He’s able to get up over the wall from that difficult 90 degree angle. I just want to talk to you a little bit about the ball and a part that he strikes as well.
If we're looking at this ball here the part that he's going to be striking. We imagine there's a line through the middle of this ball if he's going to be striking over the wall. We go below this line and aim to the right-hand side this is the part that he's going to be hitting so it's this sweet spot.
This allows him to strike and it come across it. This really wrap his foot around so that will allow him to get the ball over the wall . Up and over into that top corner and it's very deceiving for a goalkeeper . This is the reason what makes him the master of the side foot free-kick because the accuracy and the power . For this he's able to generate and how he manipulates the ball using his foot even get some gold . I said I'm moving too far can a shooting star more than a couple of people buy mad. I swear they're working hard to the madly peak .
