23 Alex

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

24 Juan Roman Riquelme

The more creative midfielder that soccer have right now. His free kicks are just too accurate. For me the best with Nakamura.

Man He Is Good Fit For Bayern Munchen Ill Tell You That He Is Good Free Kicker Good At Curve

25 Wayne Rooney Wayne Rooney Wayne Mark Rooney is an English professional footballer who plays for and captains both Manchester United and the England national team.

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

He is the best free kicker in the world

27 Leighton Baines Leighton Baines Leighton John Baines is an English professional footballer who plays as a left-back for Premier League club Everton and the England national team.

54? You can't be serious, he is better than all of these minor league players in the Middle East above him, if you don't believe me, watch clips on YouTube!

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.

30 Rogério Ceni

Best in Brasil even according to Juninho Pernambucano

Goalkeeper for Sau Paulo who scored 65 free kicks in his career. 25 more than Juninho

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!

31 Frank Ribery

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

32 Roberto Rivelino

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.

33 Ronald Koeman

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 ten

35 Michel Platini Michel Platini Michel François Platini is a football administrator, who served as the president of the Union of European Football Associations from 2007 until 2015, after which he was banned for 8 years following an ethics investigation by the FIFA Ethics Committee on 21 December 2015, and formerly a French football more.

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.
