Let’s be honest, it’s no longer a surprise. Dimitri Payet is probably one of the world’s best free-kick taker at this point.
He’s been nothing short of stupendous for France over the last one year or so, but there’s a special charm about his set-piece executions – they’re almost always accurate, sexy and they also pack a decent punch in them.
It’s precisely why Payet was one of the first names on Didier Deschamps’ French squad for the Euros. Last night, he was given a chance to stake a claim for France’s starting eleven and he produced an incredible free-kick, right at the end, to help them clinch a 3-2 win over Cameroon!
