Bending ball with inside of the foot is a popular and commonly used shot technique in football.
Crooked kicks are easier than other more difficult free kicks.
Doing free kicks in an arc is not only a preparation for standard kicks, but it can also be used to break goal outside penalty area with a curved ball. Of course, a good game in steep also requires a lot of practice and a real fight!

Whether it's a three-step approach or a four-step approach,
As you learn how to kick, you will gradually discover the optimal distance to approach.
When you run at an angle to ball, it helps you arch when you hit.

If you hit a curved ball from a passing position with inside of your foot, height of ball will be very different.
When hitting ball, ankle is blocked,
And lift your toes slightly.

When hitting ball, apply force to buttocks, and hips should drive calves.
The supporting leg is about 20 cm away from ball,
