Remember Pavard’s goal in the World Cup against Argentina? This is a sidewinder kick in soccer. It’s when you don’t strike through the ball directly but at an angle. You’re not following through and landing on your shooting foot but instead pulling the ball to the side. This puts spin on the ball. Roberto Carlos like spin. Where the ball seems to be going out of bounds but ends up in the upper corner instead.
And it’s not wonder that Bayern Munich signed Pavard after the World Cup. Watch how Pavard pulls the ball as he strikes it on the volley as he seems to fall towards the side when he strikes the ball. Pavard still strikes the ball cleanly, perfectly really, through the center of the ball but puts spin on the ball by falling towards the side rather than forwards.
