At just 20, Bayer Leverkusen attacking midfielder Hakan Çalhanoğlu (pronounced ha-kan chal-ha-no-lu) has already established himself as one of the best free-kick takers in European football, matching, we daresay, Italian free-kick specialist Andrea Pirlo in the quality and flair of his technique. The German-born Turkish No. 10 has scored three dead balls already this season. More will come. Watch his delightful free-kick goal against Köln on Sunday below.
