Footage has emerged showing Santi Cazorla taking free kicks with both feet as he proves he is one of the most two footed players to ever grace a football pitch.
The former Arsenal star nows plays for Al Sadd in Qatar and he showed his class once again as he helped his side win 4-0 against Al Sailiya in the Ooredoo Cup.
Spaniard Cazorla was famed for his two footedness during his time in the Premier League as he often took set pieces with both his right and left peg. This was the case again as he first took a free kick with his left boot in the 42nd minute, which rattled off the post.
In the 75th minute, he switched to his right and found the back of the net as his effort was fumbled by the opposition’s goalkeeper.

In 2015, he told Arsenal’s official website about how he became so two footed.
He said: “I have always preferred the right foot, ever since I was younger. I was a little bit hurt in my right ankle once, and that is when I started to use my left foot a lot more.
“Being able to use both feet is something that came quite naturally to me ever since I started playing.
“However, it is something I continuously work on in a very strong manner to ensure that my level never gets any lower.”
Cazorla added: “Everything comes from a base of hard work. After training sessions I would stay an extra half-an-hour and kick the ball against the wall with my weaker foot over and over again to make sure it becomes stronger and better.
“Players should remember that everything comes from hard work.”
