coach Jared Montz former pro and founder of OnlineSoccerAcademy.com. Today we are learning
how to bend soccer ball with the outside of your foot. This is what soccer crossing looks
like. [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] Description:
Bending the ball with the outside of your foot is a technique that can be used for passing,
soccer cross and shooting. I love the outside of the foot bend ball! There are many different
techniques for using the outside of your foot to kick it like beckham. In this Online Soccer
Academy training video we are going to learn how to cross and pass with the outside of
your foot. This can work for shooting too but this technique I’m going to show you
is not usually used for outside of the foot shooting with power. I will have a different
video for that one day. Key Points:
1. Stand about 5 steps straight behind the ball.
2. Place your plant foot an inch or two behind the ball and to the side.
3. Lock your ankle and position it so the outside of your foot is exposed. Angle it
so your big toe is almost pointing up to the sky. (show what to do and what not to do)
4. Hit the lower outside part of the ball with the outside of your foot; close to the
base of your toes. 5. Follow through high, lean back and curl
your foot to cause the ball to have that upward, downward motion. Things to Note:
If you follow through high that helps the ball get in the air, over the defenders and
then dip down. If you follow through low the ball will still have curve on it, it just
won’t go high. Both styles will work, it just all depends on the situation. Sometimes
the situation calls for you curving it low and sometimes it needs to be high. Remember too that your ball may not curve
much in the air but if the ball has good outside spin on it from your technique when it hits
the ground it will curve a lot on the ground. An example being you play the ball over the
top to your teammate running down the wing, the ball looks like it is going straight towards
the goalie, but when it hits the ground, the ball curves away from going straight at the
goalie and right into the path of your winger running on to it. That’s what you call a
great pass! Equipment Needed: Ball, 4 cones and a trashcan. Exercise Player Can Do:
Start off taking a few light swings without the ball to practice your outside of the foot
technique. When you are ready practice hitting dead balls. Set up your ball about 30 yards
away from your target. Your target is your four cones you made into a box. Cross the
ball into the box using the outside of your foot. Then repeat. Do this for 5-10 minutes. If you are feeling really confident set up
a trash can and try to hit it using the outside of your foot! [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Soccer Skill] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Foot Soccer] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] What Player Could Be Doing Wrong:
If you are hitting your plant foot or not feeling comfortable then make sure you don’t
have your plant foot to close to the ball. Remember your plan foot is an inch or two
behind the ball and to the side. You need room for your kicking foot to kick the ball. If your ball is not getting height then you
are striking the wrong part of the ball. Hit the lower outside part of the ball and follow
through high. If you hit it in the middle or top part of the ball that will decrease
your chance the ball will have height on it. Bonus Tip!
Once you believe your technique is sharp then practice bending the ball with the outside
of your foot from a dribble and hit your target. So dribble a few steps, get your head up,
then cross the ball to your target with the outside of your foot. This will make it more
game like. Hope you enjoyed this Online Soccer Academy
