For some, it’s difficult to be equally as effective with their weaker foot as they are with their stronger one, while some footballers make you question which foot is actually their strongest.
Being two-footed has great perks, as it helps these players release the ball quicker, rather than shifting the ball onto their preferred foot every time.
The Fan Park Crew lists who we think the best two-footed footballers are.
We see it so often from Arsenal’s Spanish play-maker. It’s not only a few simple passes here and there with his ‘weaker’ foot, but its corners and free-kicks too. We’re not exactly sure which foot he would consider as his weaker one, but we do know he is dangerous with both.
Its common knowledge that Ronaldo has one of the most powerful right foots in world football, but how many times have we seen Real Madrid’s superstar strike a rocket in the top corner with his left? The skill of being dangerous with both feet makes him unpredictable for defenders and goalkeepers.
As a defender, you’re taught to get your attacker on his weaker foot, however, it’s dangerous to allow Hazard this kind of freedom. The Belgian is one of the biggest upcoming stars in Europe, and his ability with his left and right has seen him make fools out of the best defenders.
The Dutch midfielder’s ability to distribute a football with either foot makes him difficult to read. He knocks a 30-yard pass with his stronger right foot, and five minutes later he’ll be doing the same with his left. We’ve also seen corners from the former Inter Milan player with both feet, as well as free-kicks – a true technical talent.
The Italian has donned the central role in midfield for years, and his passing ability has always been praised. He too can be seen distributing the ball with either foot and has become one of the most elegant players in world football.
