World Cup 2018 Set Piece Takers

A list of the expected World Cup 2018 set piece takers for all 32 international teams.

This table details the expected penalty, direct free-kick, indirect free-kick and corner takers for every FIFA World Cup 2018 team. It has been constructed using OPTA statistics for corners, attempts from indirect free-kicks and goals scored from direct free-kicks. This, combined with meticulous research into every single country’s fixture history, creates an accurate representation of who is most likely to take set pieces.

The table has been updated again on June 4th to ensure that all listed set-piece takers are included in their nation’s final 23 man squad.
