Set piece can come from free-kicks or corner kicks. In this article, I want to list out the 8 defenders that has the ability to do this. 


1 Sergio Ramos: The Spanish defender currently playing for PSG is one of the defenders that made name with set-piece plays. He can defend, his jumping and heading accuracy has helped him a lot to achieve this feat and he has scored so many goals from that spot a lot.
