Compilation Of All Of David Beckham's Premier League Free Kick Goals

David Beckham is the greatest free kick taker in the history of the Premier League, and a compilation of all his goals from set pieces shows just how good he was.

It wasn't all glitz, glamour and haircuts when it came to Becks, and though the former Manchester United winger might not have been the quickest winger he was still something special.

Few players could cross a ball as well as DBeck, either from open play or a set piece and when the set piece was anywhere in shooting range he really came to life.

The former United ace was so good at scoring free kicks that the phrase 'Beckham range' was coined and it's been modified for others since, but he was the original and best.

A compilation of all 18 of his free kick goals during his time at Old Trafford shows just how special he was.

The former England captain knew how to curl one into the corner under some of the most extreme pressure as well, which just added to his brilliance.

Of course his most famous free kick goal was in England's World Cup qualifier against Greece in 2001, for the 2002 World Cup, when the Three Lions needed a goal in the last minute to go through, with the former Real Madrid Galactico delivering at Old Trafford.

But it wasn't the only time, the first free kick in the video is from the first game in United's famous Treble winning season of 1998/99.

Beckham had just come back from the 1998 World Cup as a villain, due to his red card against Argentina, but he scored to earn his team a point in the last minute against Leicester City, with Sir Alex Ferguson's going on to pip Arsenal to the title by one point.

With 18 Premier League free kicks, the former LA Galaxy player is well out in front when it comes to the all time greats in the English top tier in the modern era.

Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola is second on the list with arguably the best player in Premier League history, Thierry Henry, with both men on 12 free kick goals.

Southampton's James Ward-Prowse has become a modern specialist at set pieces and the England international is currently on 10 goals.

Of course everyone who has played in England pales in comparison to arguably the greatest free kick taker of all time, former Lyon star Juninho Pernambucano!Juninho Pernambucano!
