​There are players who are immensely good with both their feet, so much so that it's hard to distinguish the weaker foot from the stronger foot. Santi Cazorla, Luka Modric and Neymar are just a few players who make the grade, with their two-footed nature making their game all the more hard to figure for defenders.


There are, however, quite a few players who have an incredibly weak 'weaker foot', but are still one of the best players on the planet. Let's have a look at five of the best current footballers who are the most one-footed.

1. Paulo Dybala

​Paulo Dybala has one of the sweetest left foots in Europe, as he showed in the Champions League quarter-final against Barcelona last season. The Juventus forward is one of the best young attacking talents in Europe currently, and you would rarely see 23-year-old playing the ball with his right leg. 


In fact, the Argentine has revealed in recent interviews that he is trying to increase his proficiency with his right foot with the help of a very strange drill, writing with his right foot!

2. Gareth Bale

​The Welshman was immensely destructive with his left foot during his time at Tottenham Hotspur, curling the ball into the back of the net from range with ease. His goalscoring touch was one of the reasons that Real Madrid bought him for a then world record fee in 2013. 


Bale has been unlucky with injuries in Spain, but he still possesses a left foot that can do wonders when called upon, which is often.

3. Mesut Ozil

The German assist king is another player whose left foot can weave absolute magic on the football field. Ozil is known for his ability to pick out passes with his left foot that few would decipher in his place, which makes him one of the biggest creative masterminds of the game. 


The World Cup winner has shown plenty of his ability at the Emirates over the years, and it has mainly been through the left foot of his.

4. Arjen Robben

Arjen Robben arguably possesses the best left foot in the planet, evident over the years. The Dutchman's signature move, that involves cutting into his left foot from the right wing and bending into the top left corner, is the biggest example of his incredible ability.


The ex-Chelsea and Real Madrid ​man rarely uses his right leg to control the ball, but that doesn't make him any more predictable in the eyes of defenders, who still can't come to grips with his tenacious dribbling.

5. Angel Di Maria

Angel Di Maria is the second Argentine on this list alongside Dybala, and is also a left-footed player like his four predecessors. But the PSG winger isn't any less of a threat when the ball is in the vicinity of his left foot, as he has shown over the years at Benfica, Real Madrid, Manchester United an now PSG.  


Di Maria is also a set-piece specialist, and is now an important component of PSG's star-studded front three alongside fellow South Americans Edinson Cavani and Neymar.
