Best Answer

The way your foot hits it and where are big reasons. Focus on locking your ankle and striking through the center of the ball if you want to get rid of the bend. If you practice hitting the ball with different parts of your foot (i.e. outside or inside) on different spots on the ball you will be able to curve it.

Do they put helium in soccer balls?

No, soccer balls are filled with ordinary air If they were filled with helium, they would float into the skyHelium filled soccer balls would certainly not "fly into the sky"!

But the helium (having a much smaller molecule than those that comprise air) would leak out of the bladder more quickly. In addition Helium is much more expensive than compressed air.
