Practice Makes Perfect in Soccer

Practice until you’re perfect. Train often. Train smart. Train hard. Here’s David Beckham working on his free kicks until he gets it right. Beckham didn’t become an expert free kick taker overnight, it took hours and hours of bending the ball on goal until he got it right. If it works for Beckham then it seems like wise football advice to follow.

And don’t get discouraged if things you’re working on don’t come as fast as you want. Early on the ball might not go just how you want it to but keep working at it. Practice makes perfect performance in soccer! How many repetitions did it take Beckham to master bending the ball on a free kick? Probably thousands.
