Andrea Pirlo: 'I Stole Beckham's Ideas To Improve On Free-Kicks'

Andrea Pirlo has admitted to stealing "secrets" from David Beckham to help improve his already world-class ability on free-kicks.
Pressed by L'Équipe on how he honed those skills, Pirlo said:
"When I was a kid I'd take a small foam ball and try to get my shot over the couch so it would finish in the corner of the window.

"At Milan we had [David] Beckham, Ronaldinho, [Clarence] Seedorf… a lot of good kickers. We talked to each other, we watched each other and we stole each other's secrets.

"I used to watch Juninho's free-kicks without being able to figure out how he hit them. I tried and tried, until eventually I came up with my own way to strike them."
