We take a look at five great free-kicks from English football.
On this day in 1991, Paul Gascoigne netted a long-range free-kick in an FA Cup semi-final with Arsenal.
It was a goal that befitted his reputation, and one that is commonly considered as one of the greatest free-kicks in footballing history.
It was just one of many great strikes that Gazza scored, and he is just one of many great free-kick takers to have graced the shores of England.
From the long-range power of John Arne Riise and Steven Gerrard, to the technical plays of Matt Le Tissier and the straight up devilry of Cristiano Ronaldo, some of the greatest ever free-kick takers have played in England.
Matt Le Tisser - Southampton
Cristiano Ronaldo - Manchester United
Laurent Robert - Newcastle United
John Arne Risse - Liverpool
Christian Ziege - Tottenham Hotspur
Not strictly in the top five of all time, but there has to be a place for Paul Robinson’s long-range kick against Watford. Aided by the wind and some strange bounces, the ball went flying over Ben Foster’s head, and led Spurs to a victory over their local rivals.
