Legendary football magazine FourFourTwo has ranked the top ten best strikers on the planet… in their opinion.
Being a striker is still the hardest job in football, and the most rewarding. At the end of the day, they win the games, so you can understand why they both cost and get paid the most.
In tenth place is a rather surprising choice, given his drop in goalscoring over recent years at Real Madrid. But Karim Benzema’s role at Los Blancos has changed a lot and he has grown into a very good link player.
Manchester United man Romelu Lukaku, scorer of 27 goals last season and four at the World Cup for Belgium this summer is ninth, with Inter skipper Mauro Icardi, Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino and PSG’s Edinson Cavani make up the bottom five.
After Manchester City’s Sergio Agüero, Harry Kane of Tottenham, who won the Golden Boot in Russia, and Bayern Munich man Robert Lewandowski, Luis Suarez of Barcelona came in second.
Unsurprisingly, given his records in front of goal despite his age, is Cristiano Ronaldo. After years of winning trophies at Real Madrid, the Portugal star moved to Juventus in the summer. Though he is yet to find the net competitively in Serie A.
