Whenever we think of free-kick goals we cannot help but think of the typical concepts: swerve, position, easiness or technique. But there are times when the footballers know that in order to score they must execute the free-kick with the instep, so that the shot is as powerful as possible. It might be because the distance to the goal is long or because it is the only way to surprise the goalkeeper, but it forces the ball to go fast, reducing the time of response of the keeper.
That is why we are bringing you the five best goals we have witnessed that came after a straight, powerful shot. The authors are players who have always been experts at shooting free-kicks: you have already seen some of them in other TOP5s of free-kicks displaying their skills in this field.
