Free kicks, the skill everyone wants to master. [Two shots] Today we’ll show you how to curve the ball over a wall, and into the top corner. You’re watching all attack. [Talking head]


Use the area between the inside of your foot and your laces to strike the ball. This will give you the power you need to get the ball over the wall and past a goalkeeper. [One shot]

Hit the lower edge of the ball, with your foot following through upward as you strike [one or two shots]. Really try and practice this low to high motion. This will give you a spin that somewhere between side spin [one shot], and top spin. This will create the curve you want, but also help your shot dip under the cross bar. [clip]

Game Tips

Before you begin your run up, look at the goal and decide where you want to shoot. Visualize your strike, and imagine it flying into the top corner.

Make sure there’s an angle between yourself and the ball. This will help you put curve on your shot [One shot]

Aim for curve. Remember that your shot is going to curve, so if you aim to for the corner your shot may end up going wide. Instead, aim for a spot that’s a little more central, and trust that the curve will take it where you want.

Try to place the ball in a spot of grass or dirt that’s slightly higher than the surrounding area. This will make it easier to get underneath the ball and over the wall. [One shot]

Watch the goalkeeper to see if they’re cheating toward the near side of the goal. Sometimes the best option may not be over the wall, but to the far corner. [One shot]


The most important part of learning free kicks is practice. It takes years to become great at this technique. So the best way to learn, is to go out every day, and do it yourself. [Various shots]
