By Alan Ng - Sep 16, 2015

FIFA fans are going to be in shock now, as EA has just revealed who will be the best free kick taker in FIFA 16. It is not going to be Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo or Andrea Pirlo either.

The player that is going to have the best free kick ability in the game is probably someone who most of you will have never heard of – Hakan Calhanoglu, a Turkish player for Bayer Leverkusen.

We can reveal that Calhanoglu will have an amazing 95 stat for free kicks. That is higher than Messi on 90, Ronaldo on 78 and the great Pirlo who is in 2nd place with a 93.
