Soccer Game Tips : How to Do a Bicycle Kick in Soccer

Hi, I’m Chris Murray, and I’m going to demonstrate
to you,on how to do a bicycle kick in soccer. In soccer, there are many times when the ball
is up in the air, and you have to get it down, or try to shoot it first time, out of the
air. By shooting the ball first time out of the air, offers some kind of a surprise to
the goalkeeper. Often at times, the ball is so high, that it’s above your head, causing
you to use some kind of acrobatic move, to get up in the air, and to strike the ball
at the goal. This is where the bicycle kick comes into play. The bicycle kick is done
when the ball is above your head, and you can’t reach it, or jumped to head it. Doing
the bicycle kick is very difficult at times, because you have to get the timing just right.
The bicycle kick is done by throwing your leg that’s not going to be striking the ball,
up in the air, to get your bodies momentum going up towards the ball, and bringing your
other foot through, to strike the ball, when it’s just at the right position, in the air.
Again, first you throw your one leg, your nonstriking foot up in the air, to get your
bodies momentum going, and at the same time you bring your kicking foot through to meet
the ball, at the right position, and that’s just how you do a bicycle kick.

  8. Erik Mørk says:

    fuck this. it's called an over-head kick. you know why? because you kick the ball over your head.

  9. Erik Mørk says:

    yeah, maybe in USA were they have to make up a name for everything. no mate, I live in England and here it's called overhead-kick, and the original name is from a Brazilian word which I can't remember right now…

  10. Erik Mørk says:

    Ok, got it. It is originally called "Pele kick" (you know, the famous Brazilian player and a legend in football). He was the first person to perform this type of kick, but a lot of other Brazilian players adopted this "move", and therefore the name was changed to "the Brazilian kick". Other players outside Brazil started to do this move as well, and they wanted common name for the kick. They ended up with overhead-kick. A scissor kick is not the kick shown in the video, but shown here

  11. Erik Mørk says:

    this is a scissor kick: watch?v=nzgxThtwUHM

    you see that he jumps and kicks sideways, and form a scissor with his legs. but it's not called a scissor when you do an overhead-kick.

  12. Erik Mørk says:

    you're probably right there, but it is possible to do a scissor-kick by staying in one spot. that looks actually cooler, since then you have placed yourself perfectly according to the ball. you can then time the kick more precise and put some extra power in the kick. Rooney did exactly that against Man City even tough it was a overhead kick. But I love this goal by Negrete. Pure skill 😀

  13. Erik Mørk says:

    not good bro, not good

  14. gomenaros says:

    Bicycle kick is not something that should be analysed or taught. Just get the ball over your head and try to jump and kick it backwards without thinking the falling part.

  76. Mike Ramish says:

    Yeah, really. Don't cave into the Americans version of it. Their "Football" is you pad yourself with a bunch of equiptment and slam into each other, when the real version of THAT is rugby. They think it's so big and think soccer is nothing when only america and canada play their football and our football is played and respected worldwide. The REAL FOOTBALL is your foot and the ball.

    his bicycle kick went upwards which is not recommened what

  89. DannyTheBeast420 says:

    Why are YOU bitching when its an Americans video? He's obviously going to call it what it is known mainly as in the USA. So hop off his/our dicks for calling it soccer. Its a word, bro… I think you can be a little more mature than that

  90. Jonathan Nordqvist says:

    i bitch about it becouse its my opinion! even if its an american video its still stupid why they call it soccer but its not this guy's fault! dont mean to hate dude! but this is how i think its should be! peace bro!
