|Want to cross the ball like David Beckham? Then follow this advice. Get the ball in early and often, and whip it in with pace. If you cross the ball when you have the space and time three or four times, the next time, when the defense closes you down, you can push the ball past them and beat them on the dribble.
Don’t send in a lofted ball that will get cut out by a defender or the keeper. Cross the ball at pace. Watch David Beckham cross the ball when he played for Real Madrid, see how he picks out Ronaldo. Beckham wraps his foot around the ball and strikes the ball like he’s taking a shot or a free kick. He doesn’t send in a lofted ball. Beckham is the master of the cross. Take a look.
Here’s what former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson said about David Beckham:
“He was extraordinary. When he first came to us he would train morning and afternoon then show up in the evening to join in with the schoolboys. At the start of each season we used to give all the players a bleep test to get a sense of their aerobic fitness, and Beckham was always off the scale.
“True winners are relentless. The very best players compete against themselves to become as good as they can be. They have to be dragged off the training ground.”
