One of the most spectacular views in football is the direct penalty kick. Successful punishment requires talent, goodness, and stability. As a result, there are some footballers who have acquired this ability and their names are listed below.
10. Cristiano Ronaldo
The 36-year-old is widely regarded as one of the greatest players in the history of the game.
Ronaldo's free kicks are hard to defend because of their speed, slow pace and unpredictable behavior.
Ronaldo scored 32 free kicks for Real Madrid and 13 for his current club Manchester United.
9. Lionel Messi
Like Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi has scored more than 50 goals for his club and country on penalties.
The seven-time Ballon d'Or winner's penalty shootout is a further addition. Messi has scored exactly 50 free kicks in club football, all eight for Barcelona and eight for Argentina.
8. Marcelio Cariyoka
Former Brazilian attacking midfielder Marcelio Cariyoka is one of the few players in his career to score more than 50 free kicks. He was nicknamed "Angel Foot" because of his ability to score a penalty kick. During his career he scored a number of impressive free kicks but was no less famous than he won the Corinth State Cup in 1995.
7. Ronald Cuman
Comman is a brilliant free kick expert who has scored 60 free kicks for clubs and the country.
Ziko is one of the greatest players in the history of the game. He has scored more than 500 goals for clubs and country, including more than 60 free kicks.
6. Diego Maradona
Penalty penalty specialist Diego Maradona is often known as one of the greatest players in the game.
The late Argentina was a sorcerer with a ball on his feet. During his career, the Napoli icon recorded a number of impressive free kicks.
Maradona's penalty kicks were based primarily on technique and accuracy. He is also credited with mastering Messi's free-kick skills.
5. David Beckham
He was one of the few Englishmen to master the penalty kick.
He was not a goal scorer but a penalty shooter for Manchester United and England.
The penalties were speed, curve, and accuracy.
This list was provided by Ronaldinho, another South American free kick expert.
His handling of the ball has led many of the world's most defensive fools to follow suit. He won the 2002 FIFA World Cup and scored a stunning free-kick in Barcelona during his impressive career.
Ronaldinho used a number of tricks and techniques in his penalty shootout. The magician can do everything from throwing the ball off the wall to jumping under a crowd of players.
3. Victor Legrotaglie
Although one of the most famous players on this list, Victor Legrotelli is one of the best free kicks in the game. But he has more penalties than his team-mates such as Diego Maradona and Lionel Messi.
Despite his modest stature, Pelé has produced many strong and tall defenders.
Three-time FIFA World Cup winner has scored a number of goals from free kicks.
Pelé's free kicks are usually a mix of great technique and speed, but he has nothing to lose. Goalkeepers often dropped the ball, guessing which direction it was going.
1. Juninho Pernambucano
Although there have been excellent free-kicks for years, Juninho Pernambukano is undoubtedly the best.
The penalty kick technique was based on the distance and angle of the post. The people closest to the box were a little faster and more crooked.
A.D. He has conceded 44 penalties for League 1 club.
