Obviously, the simple answer would be a player with a high free kick attribute. But surely there are other factors that take effect when someone takes a free kick. There are players that do better than others even when they have the same free kick rating. Any suggestions on how to seize the scoring opportunity?
Composure is key to scoring penalties and free kicks but I have found that creativity and players able to use either foot work better for me. High finishing stats can help too
i have noticed that players who have "free kick from long range" as a preffered move have a higher chance to score from a free kick even if that FK is just outside the box
Van der Vaart, he makes a good free kick taker

Jep, he's one of the best
best look for free kick, long shots, composure, creativity, passing and decisions i would think as not all free kicks are shots.
Anyone know players under £5m that are great freekick takers ?
Try getting Jádson from Shakhtar. Good way to buy is paying in 48 installments.
Try to buy joona toivio from Djurgarden really good to take freekick and its easy to get him and he is cheap.
Possibly Technique as well, I use that and a higher % of the free kicks took actually go in. Although that could be coincidence as only experimented with that recently
