Best Free Kick Takers in Football (Soccer)nemicated
The Contenders: Page 2XW
Just watch his free kicks on you tube, I think he deserves at least 10th place, he had such accurracy and power, few players now have such.
Power, curve, and genius placement: Rivellino scored absolutely classic game-changing direct-free-kick goals against Czechoslovakia and East Germany upon the biggest World stage. Yet, he gunned his shots in while the balls were still heavy and slow. Rivellino must be a top 10 direct-kick specialist of all times; perhaps top 5.
Go watch footage of Rivellino, you will not be sorry. He was the original master of elastico, had a rare close-control dribble mastery in dense traffic. All time greats like Ronaldinho and Maradona are self-proclaimed disciples of his. And as one of the original direct-kick specialists, he introduced shots that few can ever repeat.

Guys! Alex is different from other free-kick takers because he has de ability to fire his bullet shot to his preferred position... and at last the Goal-keeper will not get a chance to touch the ball... that's Allexx
He should have become before. But there is a reason for this because he doesn't take any free kicks at all. He should prctise more and come to the top.
He's one of the best caption and a best legend after his retirement

Leighton Baines is the set piece king without a doubt.
Baines in very consistent because if he doesn't score a freekick, it's gets on target or hits the frame of the goal.V1 Comment

Best free kick taker ever and he has scored the most goals for a goalkeeper
Around 60 goals with perfect technique. This is insane, even for midfielders!
Man Did You See His Five Free Kicks In The World Cup They Were Awesome Did You See There Curve They Were Incredible He Should Be Number 15 Or 10 at least 15 maybe 10 He He Can Score Them When He Wants To
Rivelino's shots had power, curves, surprising placement. He defined free-kick specialist. Scored incredible free kicks on the biggest stage. He did it when the ball was still big, slow and heavy. Ronaldinho and Maradona are self-idenfied disciples.
Maybe the youngsters can't remember how good he was at free kicks.
A physical yet technical Dutch powerhouse center back who scored a whooping more than 240 career goals and his freekicks are very dangerous and very powerful
Hah? Koeman should be the 7th instead... A goal against Pagliuca in 1992?
For me, easy top tenV1 Comment

I'm actually very shocked that Michael Platini, the man who revolutionized the free kick, who reinvented it, isn't in the top 3, but what's worse is that he's not even in the top ten. He had accuracy that only Juninho and Beckham could match, and he put the ball over the wall and under the bar with such pace that few people realized how near impossible it was to take a free kick the way he did. This list is flawed. Platini, then Juninho, then Beckham, the C. Ronaldo and the rest of the top 20 are about even...
He in my opinion is not the greatest ever free kick taker, however he is the inventor and perfecter of the "over the wall, under the bar" free kick and deserves to be number 4 (behind 1. Cristiano Ronaldo 2. David Beckham 3. Juninho) because he revolutionized the art of taking a direct free kick.V2 Comments
Alvaro Recoba is the greatest free kick taker in the world and shooter the first game he played foe inter he scored the best goal I have ever seen even the english commentators were amased at the power of the kick with no run up to shoot.
not only in shooting freekick that even greatest
but he done well also in passing freekick.

He is the best left free kick player in the world
Recoba have a quality passing, can play as striker or play maker..
His left foot strike just be silent of goalkeeper
He's pro free kickerV3 Comments
