2 Lionel Messi Lionel Messi Lionel Andrés "Leo" Messi is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Spanish club Barcelona. He is also known as one of the greatest football players of all time. He was born in Rosario, Argentina on June 24th, 1987.

Messi is way better than Ronaldo at free kicks. Messi deserves number 1 in this ranking list. Ronaldo is all show but Messi is actually good at taking free kicks. Anyone else agree with me that Messi is better than Ronaldo and he should be number 1?

He's has had a lot less free kicks than Ronaldo this season and still has scored more free kick goals than Ronaldo he deserves to be number 1

Looking at the number of free kicks he has converted and on target, he deserves to be number one

Should be 1 ronaldo Is Just Overatede

He played for Manchester United, Preston North End, Real Madrid, Milan, LA Galaxy, Paris Saint-Germain and the England national team, for which he held the appearance record for an outfield player until 2016.

Best free kicks ever

He is just a Tank

His freekick are way better

He's just THE LEGEND

5 Gareth Bale Gareth Bale Gareth Frank Bale is a Welsh professional footballer who plays as a winger for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Wales national team.

If it was a poll conducted now, he would win going away. Keepers are diving the wrong way or not diving at all right now. I'll bet he has the highest free kick to goal ratio.

He has pure shots and almost all of them ends up in the back of the net like its nothing

In My opinion, Gareth Bale is one of the best free kick taker, he should at least be rank 5...

He should be above messi

6 Luis Suarez Luis Suarez Luis Alberto Suárez Díaz is a Uruguayan professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Barcelona and the Uruguay national team as a striker.

6 free kicks scored form 17 attempts. More than Messi, more than Ronaldo. Not even in top 10. Kidding?

Whenever he is going to take a free kick, you just can't say it cannot be in.

One of the best free kick takers ever

Suarez suarez suarez is better free kicks than Ronaldo

7 Juan Arango

Is you go to statistics, you will now why this man is the best. But of course people are really fans of Ronaldo or Messi and think they are the best, even going to the bathroom...

Best free kick taker of the past two years in my opinion, and he is not just pure show like Cristiano Ronaldo. Arango is currently me personal favorite!

The accuracy in arango is just amazing, there is a high chance that a free kick from him will end in goal

Best Left leg kicker I ever seen. !

Man more skilful at a kick than him doesn't exist.

9 Frank Lampard Frank Lampard Frank James Lampard is an English professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for New York City FC in Major League Soccer.

He is the best free kick taker beacause he has a very strong foot

10 Robin van Persie Robin van Persie Dutch footballer from Rotterdam born on August 6 1983. Currently plays for the Turkish club Fenerbahçe S.K and The Netherlands national football team as the number 11. Robin Van Persie is known for playing for Arsenal and Manchester United, though his most notable goal was his header against Spain more.

I'm telling you, Robin Van Persie's free kick is so powerful but more to his accuracy. HE should at least be ranked at number 5. Look at his recent free kick against Man City, he was confident. Robin Van Persie is a perfect player so please vote!

Best and always will be

You;re the best dad

11 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.

I think that he can be the world best free kick taker because of his power and accuracy he aims where he wants to and the ball goes right there. It is delightful to watch him take free kicks

Look at the precision with which he kicks the ball.
They're not speedy or curvy like the ones by Ronaldo and becks respectively.
But he gets the ball where it needs to be, in the goal

He is best than c Ronaldo and worst messi

People can say what they want but Rooneys the curving is perfect..too

15 Steven Gerrard Steven Gerrard Steven George Gerrard is an English professional footballer who plays for Major League Soccer club LA Galaxy.

He is a perfect free kick taker. His accuracy is a class if he was young then he could easily compete Ronaldo and come to number 1 position

Gerrard has been amazing through the last 10-13 years, people say he's tenth but I personally think he's 3

17 Juninho Pernambucano Juninho Pernambucano Antônio Augusto Ribeiro Reis Jr., commonly known as Juninho or Juninho Pernambucano, is a retired Brazilian footballer.

Juninho Pernambucano rules the free kick world!
No 2 ways about that. Can you change that? It's not a NO!
It's a NEVER! He will be the best free kick taker in history!?!?!

New generation, watch him first. He scored close ranges and long rages, directs and indirects. He was by far the best free kick taker.

Juninho is the best freekick taker and will always be the best one, he can score a freekick from 40 yards out while other famous Freekick takers like Beckham will never score a goal from the distance, his accuracy and shot power and shooting technique where the ball moves right and left and dips well are an incredible combination which can beat and goalkeeper in the world, even Casillas, Juninho already scored against him when he was in Lyon, from about 35 yards out.

Best ever. The god of free kicks
