first of all all you illiterate men, read the title, it is that Juninho is the best freekick taker in the world, i doubt the thread was started to compare his play on the field with zidane, beckham, okocha, pirlo and all.

when it comes to free kicks, i've always been a beckham fan but men,
juninho is just sick when he steps up. like was previously mentioned, #$%$ the spot where the ball is, #$%$ the angle, that cat will bend it in, smash it in, tuck it in, whatever it takes to get the ball in from a free kick. and whoever said he doesnt perform it on the international stage fails to remember that brazil has a ton of excellent free kick takers,
ronaldinho, adriano, ze roberto, kaka, roberto carlos. but lately when juninho plays he seems to be getting his fair share of free kicks.
The only person on his level is Sinisa Mijhailovic. Remember this is the only dude to score a hat trick of free kicks. Sinisa was absolutely lethal in the 90's and before he moved to Inter a couple of years back.

The guy is not that good of a freekicker, adriano, Okocha, beckham, Ronaldinho, Zidane are better than him.
Juninho has scored more goals on free kicks over the past few years than all the guys above!!!! he is a better free kicker that zidane and than beckam. he has various ways to shoot them unlike beckam for example.

Your boy hasn't really played any big games, he hasn't really done much to proclaim him the best freekick taker in the world.
Champions league games vs real de madrid or italian sides are not "big games"?

He's very good no doubt. I thought he was always targeting the left post until I saw the last kick in the top video.

I couldn't access the 2nd video due to region restriction
