Some years ago Mihajlovic wanted to have a challenge with Roberto Carlos in shooting free kicks...I dont know why, but that challenge never took place.

Well...point is: who do you think is the best free kicks shooter in the world?
(I m not sure that s the english way for saying "tiratore di punizioni"....)

And, especially, Sinisa Mihajlovic or R.Carlos? In my opinion Sinisa can use more shooting options

That's a close call Milhadjovic is better I think but R.Carlos' shot power is tremendous like Zico.

By the way I heard Zidane took 3rd place in a freekick competition. It's old news but just wondering which competition people are talking about.
Do you know?

roberto rivelino was an awesome free kick taker. He had a cannon shot, and mastered the bending free kick. What do you guys think?

I didn't know much about him, I heard of him when I learned the Revilinho trick but didn't know he was a good free kick taker. I learned somthing new today. :)

Nowadays the best free kicks takers are
1- Mihajlovic
2- Beckham
3- Totti
4- Zidane
5- R.Carlos

R.Carlos is worse than Mihajlovic and Beckham by far

Hey Ruud why don't you join us, it's free.

Beckham mastered the inside curve very well but now he is just playing a little bit crappy. R.Carlos isn't that bad but I don't think he deserves to be in the bottom of the list because he is a specialist at doing outside curves and he is one of the few.

Yeah Juninho from Lyon is great actually I've seen some of his free kicks, it was nice. He's 29 I think almost 30 but he didn't make that much impact in soccer. I don't think it's too late for him though

Marcos Assuncao is the best, he can score from any angle.
