Since August 2011 Juan Mata is the player that has scored more goals from free-kick in the English competition, 8 in total. Manchester United and Chelsea have enjoyed his precision. He even explain his method in his YouTube channel.
A brilliant free kick from Juan Mata launched Man U to a tremendous win (3-2) that seemed impossible in the first half. In the Premier League, nobody has scored more free kicks than Mata since the Asturian came to the competition.
Several stadiums have had a big impact on my career (Mestalla, Stamford bridge, Old Trafford, Soccer City, The Olympic Stadium of Kiev, Allianz Arena, Wembley, Amsterdam Arena…) but football has let me travel so I’ve had the chance of meeting plenty more. I’ve located and compiled them so that you can see them on my particular ‘Mata´s wold map’. I hope you like it.
