Free Kicks: Marcus Rashford Versus Cristiano Ronaldo

Rashford Versus Ronaldo

How do you knuckle the soccer ball like Cristiano Ronaldo? Well, Marcus Rashford has learned. And I’m sure Cristiano Ronaldo approves. The knuckle ball skills of Marcus Rashford are nearly as good or equal to the masters. If Rashford can duplicate this for Manchester United in the coming years they are going to be deadly from free kicks. Premier League teams will have to be more careful about fouling near the top of the box.

Rashford is just 22 years old. He’s got a long future at Manchester United. Goalkeepers really have no chance in trying to save free kicks like this when the ball is moving so unpredictably in the air. Take a look.

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 44 goals from free kicks for the soccer clubs he has played for. I honestly thought that would be a much higher number. Marcus Rashford has scored maybe one or two for his club, so it’s still early in terms of just how effective Rashford will be from dead balls. However, the way Rashford struck the ball shows he knows what he’s doing to say the least. This will also give him a boost of confidence, which all players and especially young players need.

Enjoy all the angles of a very special moment as Marcus Rashford’s stunning free kick took the Reds past Chelsea into the Carabao Cup quarter finals.
