Bend it Better than Beckham

The Magnus Effect in Soccer

Ever wondered Why or How a Soccer Ball moves in the air when it is kicked a certain way?

I remember watching one of the most outrageous free kicks of all time by a little Brazilian called Roberto Carlos. He kicked the ball from 35 yards out, with the outside of his foot, bent it around the wall and in the back of the net.....Still makes my jaw drop even today.

Check out the video below as it shows you the Magnus Effect and by kicking the ball in the right way will have you curling the ball in the air better than David Beckham and as good as Roberto Carlos.
