== == == == To curve a soccer ball, you have to approach the ball at an angle, while placing your planting foot (the left, if you're right-footed, or vice-versa) facing the target. When you kick, kick with your big toe or instep and the ball will spin. Combining this with a well-placed loft and power will make it curve. David Beckham has been playing for 15+ years and his beautiful curves are due to his amazing skills with a dead ball (direct/indirect free kick, penalty shot, etc.). He has a kick, dubbed "the Beckham" in which he lifts the ball over the "wall," sends it towards the far post, but bends it back to the near post. This confuses the goaltender and the ball just dips under the bar for the goal.

To be a good midfielder, you must past the ball to your teammates and try to get the ball to the goal. Good examples of players like this are David Beckham and Xabi Alonso.

This is not religious. It is referring to David Bekham, a famous MLS soccer play for the Los Angelos Galaxy. He invented the curve ball, that "bends". It is a difficult skill to maneuver, but the object is to kick the ball so it curves around opposing players as you are passing, or the goalie when you're shooting.

To curve a soccer ball you need to kick the ball on the right side towards the bottom of the ball. The follow through is judt as important. Kick the ball the follow through pulling your leg over the ball ur foot should touch ur left knee:)

The soccer ball will move in the direction of the force applied to it. If it was not kicked squarely, so that the kick imparted a spin on the ball, then its path will curve in the air.

The forces in soccer occur when someone kicks the ball. When you kick the ball the forces that occur on the ball cause it to change shape, change speed, curve and slow down.

To curve it right to left, hit the ball with the inside of your foot on the bottom right hand side of the ball. To curve the ball left to right, hit the ball with the outside of your foot, on the bottom left of the ball. Yes that's correct,but if you want more power hit it with the tip of your foot.

you kick the ball on the bottom side with the upper inside of your shoe for a ball to curve right you hit it on the bottom left and follow through to the left and to make it curve left you kick it on the bottom right and follow through towards the outside. Adidas also claims that with their cleat, the predator powerswerve, you can curve the ball better

Yes, but only by shooting a curve ball.

By kicking the ball slightly to the left or right of center, creating a clock-wise or counter clock-wise spin of the ball.

You hold the directional button the way you want to swerve it. It is kind of simple!

Yes, the curve ball curves. This is because of the way the ball is thrown, which is a kind of a spin/jerky fast motion.

A cross between a fast ball and a curve ball is called a slider.
