Having a powerful shot is a useful tool in football.
Every football player depends upon some of his strengths. None could have it all to be a perfect player. Some have powerful shots through which they capitalize. A player, known for powerful shots standing behind the ball to take a free kick, is the worst nightmare of a goalkeeper and the defending wall.
Here are the top 5 players with most powerful shots in football history. Some players among the list are popular worldwide and have a big fan following. Whereas others couldn’t rise high in their career, but their shots deserve to be on the list.
Here are the Top 5 Players With Most Powerful Shots in Football History:
5) Zlatan Ibrahimovic:
On the 5th spot of our list of top 5 players with most powerful shots in football history is the Swedish international Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Zlatan started his career at Malmo FC and went on to play for elite clubs like Ajax, Inter Milan, FC Barcelona, AC Milan, PSG, and Manchester United.
His current form in England doesn’t show any signs of him retiring any soon. He has height, strength, and techniques for being a perfect poacher. His shot power is something to admire and is a regular free kick taker for his team.
4) Paul Pogba:
The French international was once declared unnecessary by Manchester United and sold to Juventus for free. But the same Manchester United bought him again for a world record fee of 89 million pounds. The young talented midfielder Paul Pogba is one of the best players in the world and is still improving.
Along with skills, passing, and vision, Pogba has a sensational shot power and has scored a number of goals from distance. He is in the 4th spot of top 5 players with most powerful shots in football history.
3) Steven Reid:
The 35 years old Englishman retired in 2015 after playing his last spell at the Burnley. Steven didn’t score a lot of goals in his career. But whenever he did, he makes sure it was a screamer from a long range.
He is known for his strike from long range which was struck at a speed of 189km/hr.
2) David Luiz:
Another defender on the list is Chelsea FC’s defender David Luiz. David Luiz is a strong defender with stamina and ability to read the game. He has been in a great form since he has returned to England from the French League 1.
Although David Luiz is a defender, he often takes free-kicks for his team. He has great power along with the technique and the curve and has scored a large number of goals throughout his career.
On the first spot of our list is another Brazilian. Hulk is a 30-year-old forward who is playing in the Chinese Super league and earning loads through his contract.
He has immense power in his left foot and his long range strikes don’t give goalkeepers enough chance to stop the ball going in the back of the net.
