Bend It Like Beckham

Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning of the movie after Jess and Pinky have finished shopping, there's a shot of the guys playing football in the park. If you look closely, the end of a microphone is shown leaning into the top left of the screen. The microphone moves a little, and then is moved back. (00:06:40)

Continuity mistake: In the scene of the football game in which Jess and Jules are not talking, if you watch closely, you can see that Jules' headband changes from a black fabric headband to a crisscross plastic headband.

Question: What does it mean to "bend it"? I'm assuming this is a soccer term...?

Chosen answer: It means that the ball curves when in flight - typically after a free kick is taken. During a free-kick, the defenders will form a wall between the kicker and the goal. So instead of kicking the ball in a straight line, spin is added so that, hopefully, it curves around the side of the wall.
