Player Tips - Jamie Redknapp

Posted on 25 July 2003  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Jamie Redknapp takes us through the thought process involved in the taking of free-kicks.

1: Have a picture in your mind of what exactly you want to do.
2: Make sure you make good contact.
3: If you are going for power, take a decent run up. If you are looking to bend it, the crucial thing is to get the ball over the wall.
4: There are a lot of mind games with the goalkeeper. If he reads where you are going, the odds are he will save it, so don't give any clues away.

Good luck!
