Top 10 Free Kicks
Yogan (Chelsea) 7 years ago

There's been curves, bends and blasts but they are all free kicks - Question is, which one was the best? The top 10 is posted here by me. Feel free to reply and give your verdict on my choices.

10. Ronaldinho (Brazil) vs England

This was Ronaldinho at his best. He is past his best days now, nut I am so willing tosee him to try to take another free kick like this from the right wing. I'm sure most players would have thought to cross the ball from that position on the right wing but with his talent, he had trick up his sleeve.

9. Riquelme (Formerly Argentina) vs Bolivia

Another peach of a free kick from the former Argentina midfielder. 25 yards out, and with that it doesn't look like he can ever miss a free kick.

8. Juninho (Olympic Lyonnais) vs Sedan

The Brazilian with another absolute belter in the French League. A classic one which bares the question - how does he do it? 37.2 metres away. What a stunner.

7. Cristiano Ronaldo (Formerly Manchester United) vs Portsmouth

The Portuguese magician with another of his superior free-kick. The ball didn't move in the air and was always in the same position as it swerved it's way past the stranded David James into the top corner of the Portsmouth net.

6. Nakamura (Formerly Celtic) vs Manchester United

Another cracker from Japan. The curve on the ball was incredible, and Edwin Van der Sar didn't even think to move, because the ball travelled so fast. Are Nakamura's left-footed benders save-able?

5. Aliev (Ukraine) vs Turkey

An insane 40 yard free kick from the Ukrainian. Again the Turkish Goalkeeper didn't have to move as the ball hammered off the crossbar and flew down into the back of the net. Arguably, but not in my opinion, the best ever free-kick.

4. Lampard (Chelsea) vs Ipswich

A brilliant free kick 5 minutes from time. Could be compare to Ronaldinho's but the speed he ball went at meant the Ipswich goalkeeper could try but coudn't have even imagined to save it.

3. Cubillas (Peru) vs Scotland

An incredible angle to score a free kick from. Not alot of people can score a free kick with the outside of their boot like Cubillas does here. A blast from the past.

2. Roberto Carlos (Brazil) vs France

Roberto Carlos with another amazing free kick. The run up seemed longer than how far the ball was fro the goal but he wasn't tired and he struck it so sweetly past Barthez he had no chance.

1. Beckham (England) vs Greece

Probably the best ever free kick. In that situation in stoppage time and in Qualifying for a major competition, an amazing goal, with stunning curve, and England went to the World Cup because of that magic moment by the free kick master

IMO.... Are. Carlos should be in the no. 1
Franboy (Barcelona) 7 years ago
Yess carlos is most beautiful but it's friendly match. The free kick of beckam is most important ! ! !
Amayel (PSG) 7 years ago
No, Juninho free kicks here?  He inspires [C.] Ronaldo, deserves to be in the top ten !

Ant (Liverpool) 7 years ago
Hey Yogan, excellent post and obviously a lot of effort, but would you say that there is already a decent chat about the best free kicks going on over here?


I won't close off this topic because it's a great compilation, and also because you were aiming for a blog spot.

However, discussion and arguments on other freekicks needs to go into the original and huge "Best freekick" topic

Adamaus (Manchester United) 7 years ago
Hahaha I see you met robbie like you said you wanted to
Pocketg99 (Arsenal) 7 years ago

Franboy (Barcelona) 7 years ago
I prefer the first of rosario, terrible kick
Docdre99 (Barcelona) 7 years ago
The free kick of de rosario is wonderful !
Seantoon (Newcastle United) 7 years ago
DD Rosario's freekick is almost UnReal!
Incuteration (Everton) 7 years ago
Porcello and De Rosario's ones is just real belter. How did they bend it so much? More bend than a stretchable rubberband
Juno (AC Milan) 6 years ago
De Rosario one is really nice. Haha, 11 months late. The Juninho spinless freekick is also unique
Franboy (Barcelona) 7 years ago
!Sinisa Mihajlovic Hatrick By 3 FreeKicks!

Sinisa Mihalovici has scored 3 free kicks in a single game. The not lucky but talented
Indeed Mihajlovic is one of the few players with the French Michel Platini to have scored three kicks in one game

Incuteration (Everton) 7 years ago
Wow! Magnificent free kicks! Hat Trick of Free kicks! That's unbelivable. Although the first one was kinda lucky as it deflects off the wall
Docdre99 (Barcelona) 7 years ago
Incredible ! 3 wondeful free-kick in the same match ! They are different !    I prefer the third !
Docdre99 (Barcelona) 7 years ago

Yeah Ant told me that he didn't lock it because I had spent a long time on it and it was a submission for a blog.... If it hadn't been a submission he'd probably have locked it.... Oh well
Franboy (Barcelona) 7 years ago
