Hi. I’m Chris Murray, and I’m going to demonstrate
to you on how to kick an out swerve in soccer. In soccer, it’s often needed for your to be
able to kick the ball in order for it to get around players to one of your teammates. An
out swerve is when you kick the ball using the outside of your foot, allowing it to bend
off on an angle. You would use this if you had a defender in front of you and you needed
the ball to get around them, or if the goalkeeper was at such an angle that you needed to get
around him to score a goal. When kicking an out swerve in soccer, your plant foot should
be a little wider than it would be if you were striking the ball normally. You want
your plant foot to be wider, because it will allow for your kicking foot to come through
on the outside of the ball. With your plant foot that wide, you strike the ball with the
outside of your right foot, causing it to bend off on an angle. Again I’ll show you.
Your plant foot is a little wider, and your foot comes through on the outside of the ball.
And these are just the basics on how to kick an out swerve in soccer.
