Most free kicks in soccer originate outside the box so the ball has a chance to go high and above the goalkeeper's reach. However, kicking from inside the box gives you more precision if not height. If you're willing to make this tradeoff, then follow Liverpool FC's Steven Gerrard's lead. Gerrard's side-foot free-kick is a football technique that guides the ball swiftly into the net, its success dependent on making sure you kick the nose of the ball for the greatest force. Learn how to do your own Gerrard side-foot free-kick in this UEFA Training Ground tutorial by Paul "Woody" Wood and friends.
