That's great that you are improving. By how much are you better, and how long did you practice?

a fast way to improve is to only use you left foot the whole season and it will be as good as you right foot.

I read somewhere that you will improve your bad foot the quickest if you use both foot equaly.

I suggest that you go to a wall once in a while and kick and control with both feet. Dont forget about dribbling to. Its very effective when you change your dribbling foot while dribbling. Also, try to do juggling tricks with both feet.

the foot has got nothing to do with it. unless ur very small, every1 over 12-13 shld be able to whack it if they hit it properly. the ball will not travel nearly as far if u hit it along the ground, so the higher u can kick it, the further u can kick it. is that ur problem??

now that is just stupid. if he uses his left foot in matches, hell get creamed. there is no trick to it, just practice. so many ppl underestimate what 1-2 weeks of practice on a particular thing will do.

I know someone who did that . Just use his left foot and dont care if people talk. Now his left foot is better than his right foot, and I have to say he is the best player I have ever met in my life.

However, using the left foot for the whole season is quite risky. If i were you i would use both depending on what the situation is. If you are in a situation where you need to cross the ball with your left foot go ahead and do it dont hesitate.

i agree it is a huge advantage when u can finally do it, but u can just do it in training, and make it better. ronaldinho, while being capable of using his left, uses his right far more often. in my personal game, it doesnt really matter. im a versatile defender/midfielder ('cept for wing), and i very rarely find myself wishing i cld use my left better. i use it to dribble a bit, but i switch to my rite to pass or shoot. if u play on the left, attacking midfield, or in strike, of course it wld be useful.

Whenever you are learning a new section in algebra class what do you do? You practice learning the solution over and over. How about when you are in the gym lifting weights? You don't get stronger just because you are bench pressing more weight, but because you are doing repititions. Repetition is the only way to master anything you do in life whether that is soccer, school, work, etc. There is no way to just because an instant success with the left foot. You have to make sure that you use the correct part of the foot and everything else that is required in making a proper kick. Once you repeat the kick over and over your body learns to act with the left foot naturally.
