#5 Arjen Robben's left footed shot to the top corner

Arjen Robben
Arjen Robben's shot to the top corner has been a feature of his game.

The flying Dutch winger has terrorized defenders for more than 15 years. Whether at PSV, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Bayern or with the Dutch national team, he has been one player that rival managers have had to make plans for.


Arjen Robben's pace, dribbling, understanding of the game and a hammer of a left foot have been a threat to the opposition in a career that has seen him win 11 domestic league titles, the UEFA champions league, cup competitions and a multitude of individual awards.

Robben's trademark goal is the left-footed curled finish into the top corner from the right wing of the final third. Opposition players all know its coming, they come prepared to combat it but somehow the ball inevitably nestles in the top corner where he envisaged it.

With Robben leaving Bayern at the end of the 2018/19 season, the Bavarians will miss his absolute screamers from the right wing. Replacing such high calibre efficiency may prove difficult for the German giants.
