Football crap talk

A question that has perplexed me eternally: why (in football terms) is a left-foot cultured or educated? For the linguists amongst you, does this exist in other languages?

Wasn't Carlton Palmer right footed? Guilt by association methinks...
Mentioned again in the Guardian today, re Gareth Bale.

I did a Google search.
"Cultured left foot" - 11,900 results
"Cultured right foot" - 99 results
