Scoring goals with free kicks is a very common yet an unusual feat in the round leather game. It actually takes free kick specialists to convert five out of every ten set piece opportunities given in the ninety minutes of play. In taking free kicks, it is not something every player can do. It takes someone who is advertently skilled at it to pull stunts with it. 


In this article, TechLord has decided to bust some myths about how that people feel that Ronaldo and Messi who currently play for the Old Ladies of Juventus and the Spanish giants, FC Barcelona respectively, are the best free kick takers. And in he same vein, shed a good measure of light on some incredibly talented players who were uncommonly skilled at converting free kick set pieces right into the bottom corner of the goal post. 

Interestingly, from Andrea Pirlo down to a man like Pele, here are fifteen remarkably talented players who have scored most free kicks in football history; 

1. Andrea Pirlo
