Top 10 Best Football Strikers in The World
Lionel Messi (Argentina, Barcelona)
Argentina international footballer and very high profile Barcelona’s forward Messi is at no:1 position in our list.
in the age of 29 years he deserves every bit of praise and recommendation that comes his way throughout the remainder of his career, Messi has changed world football forever, and reshaped the way in which we thought goals could be scored. Not content with the record-breaking season of last year and the 5 Ballond’Or’s that he’s picked up, also he operates in Barcelona’s front three and in the 2011-12 campaign he set a new world record by scoring 73 times in a single season. Messi has scored a staggering 39 goals and nine assists in 26 games in this season, and he doesn’t look like slowing down either. A true champion of the Soccer and without any doubt, truly the best striker in world football. Messi is Also set to take over.
Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal, Real Madrid)
The Real Madrid striker have always been in the business when it comes to grabbing the game from the opponents in the eleventh hour. It is hard to decide it in between Ronaldo and Messi, but keeping CR7’s current form in notice. It won’t be wrong to say that Portuguese stars sits back on the 2nd position after arch rival Messi on the top. Ronaldo is known for his positive attitude and aggression on the field, which overshadows the star player from the opponents, regardless of whoever he is. The Real Madrid star has four FIFA Ballon d’Or awards to his name along with the four European Golden Shoes.
Gareth Bale (Wales, Real Madrid)
After kicking off his career with Southampton as left-back, Bale went on to get recognition as the free-kick specialist. With several transfer and moves, the Welsh star currently plays for the Real Madrid, which is one of the best football clubs across the globe. Not to forget that he was the part of the recent Real Madrid side, who went on to win La Liga (2016-17) and UEFA Champions League (2016-2017).
Luis Suarez (Uruguay, Barcelona)
At number 4 in our list we have Luis Alberto Suarez Diaz, he is a Uruguayan footballer who plays for Premier League club Liverpool and the Uruguayan national team. (Will Play for Barcelona after worldcup 2014) that Liverpool’s Luis Suarez has been in career-best form for the Reds this year.
No other player in the Premier League has scored more goals than the Uruguayan this year, 21 goals in 27 appearances, and his combination with Daniel Sturridge will be something that many Reds fans will be very excited about looking forward. His ability to fire against the big name teams and in big games this year simply he is the big match player, especially this year is a very strong year from Suarez.
Radamel Falcao (Colombia, Atletico Madrid)
Colombian international Radamel Falcao Garcia Zarate, commonly known simply as Falcao, a name given to him by his father as a tribute to the Brazilian coach Paulo Roberto Falcão. 31 years old Colombian footballer Radamel Falcao is at no:2 in our top 10 list, Atletico Madrid done this year is even more incredible than the year before, when he seemingly announced himself as one of the greatest players in world football at the moment.
Falcao had scored 21 goals in 23 games for Atletico Madrid last year guiding them into the Copa del Rey cup final and above Real Madrid on the La League points table in the process.
Yet the fact that he’s done it on an average of just 3.5 shots per game (compared to the 5.4 of Lionel Messi, the 7.0 of Cristiano Ronaldo and the 5.8 of Luis Suarez), those numbers are truly incredible and show just how deadly he is in front of goal post.
Robin van Persie, (Netherlands, Manchester United)
Robin van Persie is a Dutch footballer who plays as a striker for Manchester United and the Dutch national team. he is at no:5 according to our list.
Manchester United would not have the lead in the Premier League that they do were it not for Robin van Persie, with the Dutchman bailing out United time and time again this year.
He has been a dominant attacker and has threatened every opponent he’s come up against, 19 goals and eight assists in his credit in just 25 appearances speak volumes of that success. His inclusion as a top-five striker was an absolute no-brainier. Not in the slightest.
Wayne Rooney (England, Manchester United)
In a role that’s changed dramatically with the arrival of Robin van Persie to Manchester United, Wayne Rooney has been incredibly impressive for the Red Devils this year. Rooney is the all-round player. Superb awareness, long-range passing, hold-up play and a never-say-die spirit combine to make a precious asset for club and country.
Injuries have kept him from the regular appearances we’ve come to expect from the England international, but his 20 showings so far have still produced 11 goals and nine assists in the Premier League—as well as a goal and three assists in the Champions League.
United are cruising in the English competition and potentially on course for a league/cup double-largely due to the success of Rooney throughout 2013. he is at No 10 in our List of “Best Football Striker“
Rooney is Also the One of Richest Soccer Player in the World
Mario Mandzukic (Croatia, Bayern Munich)
Mario Mandzukic is a Croatian international footballer who plays as a striker for FC Bayern Munich in the German Bundesliga, he is the no: 8 best striker of the world according to our list the Bayern Munich striker is a genuine top-10 attacker in the world right now. With 15 goals in just 18 starting appearances (on just three shots per game also), Mandzukic has been huge in the Bundesliga race for Bayern this year, giving them a huge lead domestically and is also a key reason why the Germans are so highly thought of in the Champions League. Definitely a dangerous player to watch in the back half of both competitions.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Sweden, Manchester United)
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a Swedish professional footballer who plays as a striker for Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain and the Swedish national team for which he is captain
Swedish international footballer and Captain of National team Zlatan Ibrahimovic at 9th place in our list. He currently plays as a striker for Manchester United. The things Zlatan Ibrahimovic does simply astound people more and more with every passing week, and the Swedish international has continued his success again into the 2013 season.
Currently 35 years old , he channels as a god as well as an idol for his fandom .
Edinson Cavani (Uruguay,Paris St. Germain)
Edinson Roberto Cavani Gomez is an Uruguayan footballer who plays as a forward for PSG and the Uruguay national team. A very prolific goalscorer, Cavani is well known for ability to score impressive goals and his tireless work-rate. He is at no: 4 in our list.
Cavani has been immense in Series A this season for Napoli -netting 18 goals from 24 appearances and doing everything he can to keep his side from slipping even further. On 16 July 2013, Cavani was transferred to Paris Saint-Germain for a reported €64.5 million, making him the most expensive signing in French football history.
Without much behind him, Cavani has sparked attacking chances and scored goals that only few others have done in world football this year, and with several strong seasons behind him now, he must be included as one of the top strikers in football arena at the moment.
