Or you can look like this guy
Im sure your thinking to your self, how do I make sure I look like a pro when kicking a football?
All you have to do is follow my 5 EASY STEPS! (cheers)
First, lets look at the materials we will need
You will need a ball, well pumped
You will need some football cleats, comfortable shoes will also work if you do not own a pair
You will need some loose fitting clothes, make sure its something you wouldn’t mind getting dirty
Lastly yourgonna need an open space, preferably with grass terrain
Now that we have all of our materials, here are the 5 steps that will have you kicking like a pro in no time!!
The first step is to keep you toe pointed down. This will prevent you from kicking the ball with your toe. The contact should be made by the top of your foot, slightly below the laces.
secondly, make sure you ankle is tightly locked. This will maximize the power of your shot.
Next, you will need to keep your knees bent. This will help you maintain balance and a nice low center of gravity
The next step is to make sure you keep you supporting foot about one meter away from the ball. This skill will be essential in trying to direct the ball in the direction you want
this next step is a killer. Even the pros have a hard time with this one. Your body will determine the elevation of the ball. If you lean back, the ball will shoot straight up in the air. So keep you body leaned for and keep your momentum moving forward, to drive the ball forward instead of up in the air.
Put all of these steps together and you should have a basic, fundemental kick
After some experience, you will learn to add many effects like curve, spin, and swerve, to deceit the goalie and score many goals
Now you know what they say, if you try, and you put a little “umph” into it, you get triumph! so if you follw my five easy steps and practice a bit, you will find yourself kicking a football like davidbeckham!
