Question by Steven: How can I chip like Wayne Rooney did against Porto at Old Trafford?
The one Rooney did from the edge of the area that just got tipped over the bar by the keeper. What are the main techniques and points to executing the chip. Tips for ways of striking the ball would be very good. Thanks

But, instead of following through like a regular kick, once you get contact with the ball, you pull your foot back or leave it where the contact occurred.
Here is a good tutorial:
