The Greatest Left Footed Football Players

Football is the most popular game globally. Every fan knows that feeling and rush of blood supporting a club, team, or country. This sport is a religion in its own and there’s no denying that. The number of left footed footballers since football came into being is few. This space is dedicated to the greatest left footed football players.

There is a mystical element that adds uniqueness to a left footed footballer. The charisma, grace and dynamism a left foot brings to football are unmistakable. Over the years footballers with that special left foot have left fans speechless. Leg speed, control,

pass, dead ball situations, and penalty’s,  predominantly left footed football players have been involved in every scenario that has proved vital in match wins. While some believe that being a left footer has its disadvantages, majority are of the opinion a left footed footballer is more deceptive and unpredictable with moves than their right counterparts. Left footers are able to create unimaginable angles and make through passes more effectively because of their unconventional movement and direction with the ball.

Teams with Left footed players taking corner kicks increase their chances of scoring significantly because of aerial angles created. Goal Keepers don’t have it easy, especially so when a left footed footballer is about to take a free kick. The 20-30 yard distance free kick taken by a left footed footballer is a nightmare for every goal keeper. The best goalkeepers dread angles left footed players create. Needless to say a left footed kick goes past the wall more frequently than right footed kicks. Most times goalkeepers are unable to reach the ball taken from a free kick by a left foot player; this because a left footed football player’s angle on elevation combined with drift and deviation leaves the goalkeeper unsighted. Yes, it’s true, in a dead ball situation; a left footer causes panic in the opposition. Sit back, relax, and dwell in the mastery and mystery of left footed wizards.
