The Beckham free-kick

We recall a classic David Beckham moment from 1998/99 and show you how you can recreate it.

David BeckhamFree-kick techniqueDifficultWe take a trip back to Manchester United FC's UEFA Champions League winning 1998/99 season and a memorable moment from the boot of David Beckham. Facing FC Barcelona at Old Trafford on Matchday 1, the England star fired in a trademark free-kick in six-goal thriller, a goal that we recreate to help you to find the net with the precision of Beckham too.
