I agree. When I was a kid I spent years practising kicking a ball against a brick wall at my home in an attempt to make my weaker left foot match the abilities of the right foot. If only modern players had the same determination to improve.
Eventually I succeeded and I learned to kick as well with my left foot as my right. Didn't alter the fact that I was crap with both feet of course.
And I reckon I could cross the ball with my left foot to a reasonable standard. Certainly wouldn't keep coming back on to my right foot as most modern players do.
Drives me nuts because if I could do it why can't these guys, who are, after all, doing nothing else but play and practise football?
I'm sure they grew up practising two footed too and could run rings round all the two-footed Hob Nobbers while wearing a barnacle-encrusted clog on their right foot. But it's about fine margins, and I guess they'd often rather be accurate with their right foot than risk a lower accuracy level pass or shot with their left. But there was definitely one glaring opportunity for Swift to shoot with his left which he frustratingly declined.
OK, I know even the mention of a female footballer will drive the cavemen on here nuts but Fara Williams has excellent ability with both feet. I've seen her score some great goals with both feet as well as being completely happy to strike a dead ball with either foot depending on the situation.
