London, United Kingdom, November 25, 2018 : Former England forward Wayne Rooney named Ruud Van Nistelrooy the best penalty spot-kick taker he has ever seen during his match centre appearance on Viacom18 Sports FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 presentation, referencing the famous draw between Arsenal and Manchester United in 2003, where Nistelrooy missed a penalty in the stoppage time.The foul on Nistelrooy, who gave away a penalty, sparked a lot of discussion at Arsenal, who was forced to sign a second booking, resulting in a red card.I would have to say Ruud Van Nistelrooy, who missed a great foul against Arsenal, was a bit of commotion after that.Rooney said it was amazing how he would use to hit his penalties and goalkeepers couldn't get close to him in training, while ex Portugal star Luis Figo named Spaniard Gaizka Mendieta the best spot-kick taker.

Ex players also revealed their picks for the best free-kick takers to have played the game of football.Figo picked Serbian Sinisa Mihajlovic and Brazillian Roberto Carlos as two players with outstanding free-kick skills.Inter Milan's Sinisa Mihajlovic or Roberto Carlos-both styles.Brazilian Juninho Pernambucano and English legend David Beckham were named as the best free-kick takers by the former Manchester United striker, not just in games, but when we trained in conditioning sessions.
