Hi, I'm Nick Webster, and I'm here today to show you how to shoot a knuckleball. The reason we want to learn how to shoot a knuckleball is it's so hard for goalkeepers to read. But, it's one of the most difficult skills in all of soccer. That's why you see only the greatest players in the world, someone like Cristiano Ronaldo, attempting a knuckleball shot. Striking the knuckleball in soccer is one of the hardest skills to develop. We're gonna break it down into five distinct components. The run up. You wanna be straight on at the ball and really attack it. Number two, standing foot placement. Make sure that you're non-striking foot is as close to the ball as possible. This may seem a little uncomfortable to begin with, but you'll soon get the hang of it. Number three, the strike. What you want to do is hit the ball as hard as you can with the top part of your laces, and the top half of the ball. This is gonna give the ball the topspin that will get it over the wall and dip down and deceive the goalkeeper. Number four, the follow-through. You want a short, abbreviated follow through. This will generate more power on the ball and give you the topspin that you need. And, number five, practice is king. The more you practice this most difficult of skills, the more you'll become proficient. And, one day, you'll be striking the ball like Cristiano Ronaldo.
