41 Alvaro Recoba

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..

42 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.

He is good, kok bisa gak masuk 10 besar? Laugh out loud
Ayoo vote naik terus bray, zico, bambang pamungkas yes

Yeah, amazing how often he scored when taking a free kick.
The only player I ever saw score TWICE with one free kick.

He did it in club team and in the national team.

43 Zinedine Zidane Zinedine Zidane Zinedine Yazid Zidane, nicknamed "Zizou", is a retired French footballer and current manager of Real Madrid.

though zidane lacks power when passing and doesn't lift the ball high up in the air like beckham, ronaldinho, or pirlo, he still manages to score from an average range. he doesn't have speed like carlos or accuracy like juninho, however he's still fairly better than those regular soccer players you see

He is claim and more released when taking penalties. His targets are serious for the keep to caught.

Zinedine is the best player in the world

48 Nolberto Solano

He's scored greatest goals in Sporting Cristal, Boca Jrs, Newcastle, Aston Villa, West Ham United and the Peruvian national team.

Solano deserves to be ranked in the top ten or maybe at least 11, 12 or 13.

He is one of the best, even Maradona called him "Maestrito"

The best free kicker in the history of newcastle

49 Roberto Baggio Roberto Baggio Roberto Baggio (Italian pronunciation: roˈbɛrto ˈbaddʒo), born 18 Feb 1967, is an Italian former professional footballer who mainly played as a second striker, or as an attacking midfielder. In 1993, he was named FIFA World Player of the Year and won the Ballon d'Or. He is the former President of more.

Baggio should be number 1

The divine ponytail was a player ahead of his time. His touch, creativity and skill were second to none. He scored loads of amazing free kicks at Fiorentina, Juventus, AC Milan, Bologna, Inter and Brescia. I particularly recall a very intelligent freekick he took while at inter. Everyone expected a cross and he fooled them all and passed it into the net. At Brescia he took a corner kick directly into the net during a league game against Leece. A true legend!

43? I can't believe it.Baggio is one of the best free kick takers in the football history...

50 Milan Radovic

Thanks Radovic for your free kick in PERSIB BANDUNG - yunusfauzanapriliatna

51 Francesco Totti Francesco Totti Francesco Totti is an Italian professional footballer who plays for, and captains, Serie A club Roma.

He is just one of his kind.. There's just no other one to compare him with.. Completely versatile with both foot. This is a player that doesn't care of the leg to score or shot with at any given time in sight of goal.. In terms of foot versatility, especially with chips, shots and volleys.. And all sorts of goals, I haven't seen any as accurate as he is. Not even Christiano Ronaldo, Kaka and some others of today are close enough..
He provides passes from anywhere.. In fact just get to watch his bests.. Only that he was unlucky with world best player awards.. Just like my Jay-Jay Okocha..

just have a look at his free kicks as good as any in the top 10. Also, lovely volley and semi volley shots on the run from outside the penalty box. Magico He's a beast

Master of the art. Among the elite. As is Andrea Pirlo.

No totti no party

52 Sejad Salihovic

He's really underrated but has an amazing shot with his left foot, he's one of the best free kick takers in Europe.

Most underrated free kick taker. Look up Salihovic free kick vs. Turkey and dortmund... Or any other ones

Extremely underrated... But will get more prominence after the world cup

54 Alex de Souza

He might not score from free directly all the time. But he assists from them too... He assists 10 goals per season at least from free kicks, scores at least 2-3 from them...

So calm and clean shoot. Keep his nervs in cool mood what ever the pressure of the game is... Consistent delivery with perfect precision and good speed.

57 Darijo Srna

He isn't well known just because he doesn't play for a big club or country but he certainly belongs to this list. He's got great power and accuracy and can score from any angle. He's not only a great but great player as well and one of the best full back in the world.
