FIFA 21: The 10 best free kick takers

Not everyone can pull off the perfect free kick in FIFA titles. But something that makes it a whole lot easier is using players with high free kick accuracy ratings. Thankfully, EA has released a list of the best free kick takers in FIFA 21.

Here’s a look at who they are, and what makes them so good at pinging dead balls on to heads or ideally straight into the top corner.

FIFA 21: The 10 best free kick takers

Ruslan Malinovskyi is a Ukrainian midfielder who plays for Atalanta in the Serie A. He’s known for being a set-piece specialist capable of doing powerful and accurate shots with both feet, so it’s no surprise to see him as the first name mentioned on the list with a solid free kick accuracy rating of 88.

9. Robert Skov (89)

Robert Skov is a Danish left-wing back who plays for 1899 Hoffenheim. He played for Copenhagen in the 2018-2019 season and scored 29 goals, which was a new record in the league, and quite a few of them were world-class free-kicks. His free-kick accuracy on FIFA 21 is 89 points, making him the ninth-best free-kick taker in the game.


8. James Ward-Prowse (89)

It’s hard to believe that James Ward-Prowse is still only 25-years-old after making 232 appearances for Southampton. The English midfielder has only scored 22 goals in his career, but some of them have been speculator free kicks. That’s probably why he has a free kick accuracy rating of 89 points, which puts him right up there with the best in the world.

7. Neymar (89)

Neymar is one of the biggest names in the footballing world, and for a good reason. The Brazilian maestro has been sensational for every club he’s played for, and among his many qualities and skills is the ability to take a remarkably accurate free kick. For that reason, EA has given him a free kick accuracy rating of 89 points in FIFA 21, which makes him the seventh-best free kick taker in the game.

6. Shunsuke Nakamura (90)

Shunsuke Nakamura is nothing less than a Celtic legend. It might be a surprise to many but the 42-year-old Japanese midfielder is still plying his trade at Yokohama FC, and although he’s slowed down quite a bit, his free kicks are as lethal as ever. Nakamura has been given a free kick accuracy rating of 90 points, and it’s sacrilegious to think he deserves anything less.


5. Sebastian Giovinco (91)

It’s been a while since Sebastian Giovinco has played in a top-tier league. But the former Juventus attacker has been around the world, playing for Toronto FC and now Al Hilal, and he’s still one of the most accurate free kick takers in the world. EA has shown their respect and given him a 91 free kick accuracy rating in FIFA 21.

4. Enis Bardhi (91)

Enis Bardhi might not be the biggest name on this list. But the Macedonian-Albanian midfielder has made quite a name for himself at Levante and shown that he is one of the best free kick takers in the world. It’s no surprise then that he’s snatched the fourth spot on the list with a free kick accuracy rating of 91 points.

3. Miralem Pjanić (92)

Miralem Pjanić has been a reliable midfielder for both Roma and Juventus in his long and successful career. The Bosnian veteran has moved on to Barcelona, where he’s hoping to find still more success. He is a talented and creative playmaker, but he’s also scored many goals from free kicks, and that’s why he’s been given a 92 free kick accuracy rating and earnt the spot of third-best free kick taker in FIFA 21.


2. Daniel Parejo (93)

Daniel Parejo has been one of Valencia’s best players for the better part of nine years, where he’s made 282 appearances and scored 54 goals. The Spanish midfielder recently moved to their local rivals, Villareal, on a free transfer. However, his lethal free kicks will still rock the world for quite some time, and that’s why he’s considered to be the second-best free kick taker on FIFA 21 with a free kick accuracy rating of 93 points.

1. Lionel Messi (94)

Lionel Messi is by far the best free kick taker in the world and has been for quite some time. His prime years might be fading, but his free kicks are still as good as ever, and he thoroughly deserves the 94 free kick accuracy rating he received on FIFA 21.

And with that, we have our complete list of the best free kick takers in FIFA 21. If you’re interested in our other lists, be sure to check out our articles on the Top 10 Most Improved Players and Top 10 Five Star Skilled Players.
