Gareth Bale free kick tutorial: How to take a “Knuckleball” set piece
As an ambassador for Lucozade, Gareth Bale has produced a rather excellent tutorial video.
Now, he might not get to take many free-kicks at Real Madrid these days, when he is fit and Cristiano Ronaldo is also on the pitch, but Gareth Bale’s free-kicks were one of the highlights of 2013 for many football fans.
When the Welsh forward was banging them in for Spurs, he admitted he didn’t often know which way they would go and its all to do with hitting the valve of the ball with the correct technique.
Really intriguing stuff!
