The Top Ten

1
Lionel Messi
Are you kidding me 3rd this has to be some joke and why is fernando torres 1st he has been horrible recently and can't compare to messi and ronaldo messi should be frist and ronaldo should be second (the reason I put ronaldo second behind messi is because he has won more than ronaldo recently)
Messi is the all time master of soccer and it will stay the king of soccer the people who say that ronaldo is better are totally wrong his strength might be regular but his skill is amazing in his full strength he can defeat real madrid liver ball chelsea ac millan manchester city manchester united and inter milan. ,.. Etc...
Messi enjoys playing you can see it in his face when he scores! He enjoys playing more than any other player and he is fast, faster than the legendary Diego Maradona, he is the best player right now, but I wont dare call him the best to have ever played football either!

[Newest]Lionel Messi is a great player who is able to score fantastic goals. He can assist to other players as well who will then get some goals themselves.

2Ronaldo
Players like Messi, C Ronaldo, Pele or Maradona would get to touch the ball well over 20 times in a match. They would get numerous deliveries of the ball. Other players surrounding them would involve them in the game. Subsequently, such players would get to score one or two goals per match. However, when R9 played for real Madrid sometimes he would not get to touch the ball for 20 minutes or more. In an entire match he would get to touch the ball only a few times. On the top of that he never got to play a full match, all the time he was at Real Madrid. Therefore, he had to make every touch with the ball count. And boy wasn't he the the most skillful player on the planet to do that! During many matches he would get to touch the ball only two or three during an entire match and he always succeeded to convert at least one of these few touches with the ball into at least a goal. Just imagine players like Messi, C Ronaldo, Pele or Maradona getting to touch the ball only a mere few times in an entire match! Firstly, this is is unthinkable, simply because other players were very keen to involve them in the match. Secondly, none of these players would have the superb ability to covert only a few touches on the ball in an entire match into goals. Only R9 could do that! You just had to pass him the ball only once in an entire match and you could be sure that he would make defenders tremble with fear, dribble pas them and score with pinpoint accuracy. This is why R9 was the hero of L Messi. R9 was the best forward to have ever graced the beautiful game.
Growing up a football fan in the late 90s, I first became aware of R9 when he burst onto the scene at the World Cup in 98. He was sensational. He had the speed, power and skill combined with an incredible eye for goal. No one could match his talent, defenders feared and respected him equally. I hadn't seen anything like it. No disrespect to the strikers of past and present, but to me he will always be and should stay a legend.
he is the best ever to bad injuries killed him what messi just achieved after playing 5-6 years for barca ronaldo did that in 1 year at the age of 19 and he won wc 2 times
[Newest]No matter where history takes football, he is the true "complete striker" n today's best n past best footballers idolise him above any other with no doubt...

3Fernando Torres
EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE OPINIONS THAT TORRES IS NOT ON FORM, HE IMPROVING HIMSELF AT CHELSEA... TOP 3 REASONS WHY HE IS ONE OF THE BEST
1) HE IS NAMED AS THE MAN OF RECORDS... SCORING GOALS IN FINAL & WINNING ALL POSSIBLE TROPHIES.
2) PROVING HIMSELF BY SCORING MORE GOALS THAN MANY STAR PLAYERS.
3) DANGEROUS STRIKER BY TAKING ALL DIFFICULT CHALLENGES WITH GOALKEEPERS AND DEFENDERS WHICH STRIKERS REFUSE.
CLUBS TARGETING FERNANDO TORRES...
1) AC MILAN
2) NAPOLI
3) ARSENAL
4) LIVERPOOL
5) F C BARCELONA

Torres s still one of the best striker in the world... He can prove dis once again in chelsea... He can again explode as one of the dangerous forward in the world...
He is the best he scored 60 goals for liverpool. Why do you think chelsea bought him for 50 million dollars. Without him liverpool/chelsea would never win. He is the best soccer player in the world
[Newest]What is he doing here he is playing crap at chelsea

4Cristiano Ronaldo
#11. Relly. He is 1 of the best players of all time. Can play anywhere. Wing, striker. And not to mention his free kicks. Should be in the top 5. Greatest finisher ever.
at the moment(2010) he is surely one of the best

MatrixGuy

Given his pace and finish he has got to be the best besides his movement is clever and hi tricks are gut wrenching for the defenders
[Newest]He is the best

5Didier Drogba
A physical monster and has a commanding presence on the field.. Such a deadly finisher with amazing technique and nowadays has been assisting goals as well.. A perfect guy to have up front
You guys gotta be kidding me? That Dwarf [messi] above DIdi? He's not even a striker for the heaven's sake, he's a midfielder! He usually plays on the flanks, can be considered a winger... Silly dumb asses voting with eyes closed! DiDi's the killer striker go ask Arsenal about his bullish nature always sabotaging them...
He has very powerful shots, most of the shots and goals are from long range. He is also have the speed, skill and more. Besides that, he is scary for the defender midfield, defenders and especially, keeper
[Newest]Some striker super strong

6Wayne Rooney
Wayne rooney is the best player in the world. He has more stamina than ronaldo, messi or fernando. He runs like a bull. His kicks are just like bullets. For I say rooney is better than all other players. His heads are better than anyone else
Rooney also can play as wing player and he also have powerful kick... I never see other players play like rooney
Wayne Rooney no competition at all
He destroyed MAN City
He is much better than Fernando Torres
[Newest]Best player in the world to me, he has. A. Lot of stamina

7Zlatan Ibrahimovic
You want a guy who is absolutely clinical in front of goal, can score out-of-the-world goals and dribble past you as if you were not there? Well then, it's gotta be Zlatan. The best all-out striker in world football over the last few years, this guy is nothing short of a beast.

GinSan

Nobody can do what zlatan can. He's extremely versatile. He's got amazing physique, good technique for his size, speed, acrobacy and a lot of force behind his shooting.

He is currently the best player.
He is a magician. He creates new moves. He is very strong. If he could use his aerial power in front of goal he would have had no match. Still his crazy moves make him the best of the best.

8Thierry Henry
he is a great striker, a complete striker, he has speed, has a high skill, he should be ranked first!
just legendary the best of all time even if he is at ny red bulls he will bring that team to the top
The best striker ever to play the modern game, he had it all.
[Newest]Why is torres ranked higher than Henry

9Robin van Persie
Robin is not only a great striker, but also very complete, he works hard, and can pass dribble score. Above that he is an outstanding captain.

And comparing him with other great footballers, he is not in the best team.

Therefor he is my favorite. Dennis Bergkamp has been my favorite.
This guy is my favorite player. He is amazing! Robin van Persie jumped over a defender and scored! He should at least be #5 for he is the "Flying Dutchman. "
HE SHOULD BE THE BEST, NUMBER 1. FABULOUS FINISHING, YOU GOTTA LOVE HIS GOALS AND LEFT FOOT
HE IS THE BEST OF THE BEST
[Newest]Robin van persie is a great player scoring amazing goals. Hence he is a great striker having deadly killer instinct. A VOLLEY KING###

10Luis Suarez
Luis suarez is a very good soccer player.
And 2011 he won the copa america. Now he plays for liverpool. When he plays in the field he plays very good he defends and makes goals and that is a good soccer player
omg! luis suarez
35 goals in 33 league games
49 in total last season
he is amazin!

LucasMota

Luis Suarez is the best he scored 31 goals in just 34 matches he is cool. EVERYONE VOTE FOR LUIS SUAREZ
[Newest]He's clearly the best striker in the world right now. Look at what he's done for Barcelona in just his first season

The Contenders

11Pele
I may love Torres, but let's admit it, when Pele's on the field, he's unstoppable. He was and still is, in my opinion, the only player who was born to make football the phenomenon it is now.

kusanagi_sanasara

This is a crazy question.
Needless to say, PELE is GOD KING of soccer for all time and unrepeatable.
They can't realize, please refer to some his clips during Santos and national Brazil team.
What is going on. Why is he tenth. Fernando Torres sucks, he should be at like 50. Pele is the god of soccer.
[Newest]How did he come 10

12Neymar
Neymar plays amazing. I love the way he dribble, attacks, tackles people and shoots. He's simply amazing... !
He was the best striker
Neymar is awesome, plays well

13Sergio Aguero
Torres number 1? , how about Sergio Ag├╝ero? Nuber 59? ,
Very smart and a piece taker
I like wht AGUERO IS DOING IN THIS LEAGUE. It seem to me he is good striker, I hope he will work hard for him to be the best striker in the world...

14Ronaldinho
What?! Are you kidding me?! He is a 2 time fifa player of the year award
winner. Sure he messed up a bit in milan but if you see his performance now in
brazilian league, you would surely want him to be in the top 10.
He is god gifted player and will be always on number 1..
I want to see drogba torres C. Ronaldo and ronaldhino as forwards in one team
Number 1 is number 1

15Gerd Muller
At least 1 goal in each national game he played. Don't think anyone else did that till today. Also still record holder in German ladder for the most goal scored in the ladder and back in his day there where 4 games less a season than today.
He scored 68 goals in 62 international appearances, and had fantastic dribbling ability.
Bit of a joke list if Muller is 51

16Miroslav Klose
He has scored 14 goals for his national team which places him 2nd after Ronaldo

LucasMota

Klose is by far the best striker I have seen. His enormous hunger for goal is the symbol of a great player. As a fan of this great game, I can never forget his goal scoring abilities.
The most fantastic striker in this world
I think he will never stop trying to be the most fantastic striker in this world!
Good luck Klose, I will always support you!
[Newest]The Oldest and the Greatest German Striker, with age comes experience

17Diego Maradona
20? What why is Torres second.
Devine skill, speed & passing ability.
Wins highest cups throughout the carrier without any outstanding supporting player.
Such achievements with average skilled team mates of club & national side simply implied why he is the greatest.

18David Villa
What is Torres doing at number 3, I mean really? I like him as a player but he has not played well since he moved to Chelsea, and his accomplishments as a striker are far less than Villa or Raul, so he is not even the best in Spain. Something is seriously wrong with this list.
Villa is the best spanish striker he is a legend 56 goals in 93 caps for spain and his best career is with valencia 107 league goals in 166 league caps and all tournament 128 goals in 217 caps silver shoe in 2010 world cup, golden boot in euro 2008 bronze ball in 2010 world cup and bronze shoe in confederation cup 2009
I think that Neymar. Jr is the best but Villa gets like no credit and he does a lot of work. So, he definitely deserves to be in the top 10.

19Arjen Robben
He is so good at soccer

20Samuel Eto'o
He is the only player in history to win back-to-back Trebles with different squads. He is one of ONLY 2 players to ever score in two Champions League Finals. He has scored well over 200 goals in his career. He is undoubtedly the greatest African Footballer of all time. Has the player of the year trophies to prove that. Top strikers do not just score goals... they score goals when their team needs it most.
I THINK HE COULD BE THE ICON OF AFRICAN FOOTBALL SOCCER IS ONE OF THE BEST EVER IN THE WORLD JUST CHECK OUT HOW MANY TITLE GRABS BY THIS LEGEND OF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE AFRICAN CUP SPANISH ITALIAN SUPER CUP OLYMPIQUE GAMES
I think eto`o should be in the first 3 because he is the only player I have seen who have changed club but still perform briliantly. so for me, he is one of the best with King Ronaldo.
[Newest]He is the greatest player in the world
