    Robert Mueller, the German exchange student on our high school soccer team was left footed. Funny, he did not even play soccer in Germany but in our po-dunk conference, he was All Conference.

    Stoichkov was definitely left-footed as well as Riva. Along with Puskas, he has arguably the most powerful left-foot ever. When he was playing for Cagliari, his shot was so powerful, it broke a child's arm.

    Martin Palermo, but he would've probably had better luck with his right.

    Gio van Bronckhorst, Philip Cocu, Matthijsen, Ramon Zomer, Robbie de Wit (who unfortunately had to quit his career following a stroke) Richard Witschge I believe; with anyone who plays on the left for Holland, it's 90% certain that he's a leftie as that's the way the Dutch like to play, with lefties on the left.

    I think it'd be more interesting to name the players who are 100% two-footed, i.e. just as capable with their left as with their right foot. Wesley Sneijder is the only one I know in that category.
