The Top Ten

1
Lionel Messi
Pace, dribbling, finishing, passes, positioning. Everything is on ***** Barcelona has made the best of him.
What is messi should be number 1
He is the best and no one can beat him. Cr7 maybe the best player in the world but messi is the best player in universe. He got speed, best skill and talent. No defender can stop him to score

2Cristiano Ronaldo
The two best strikers are Cristiano and Messi, with a lot of difference with the rest.
Messi scores more goals every year, but the truth is that Cristiano is the most complete striker: passes, heads, shoots from long distance, volleys, dribbles, free kicks, heel-kick, he uses both legs,... He's scored against Barcelona and in every important match.
Cristiano plays for a team whose style isn't ball possession, so he constantly makes 50-60 meters runs with/without the ball, he defends the winger, defends corner kicks, aerial balls...
Messi plays with players like Cesc, Xavi, Busquets, Pedro, Iniesta with a lot of quality in passing, and they all play for him. He also plays very close to the area so he is in the best position to score. Obviously he is fantastic and he is the best playing between lines, and dribbling in short distances, but he recieves a lot of help from the team. He never defends so he doesn't waste energy on it.
Talking about defenders, they defend Cristiano much harder, with agressions. Everything against him is allowed because newspapers say "he is arrogant".
Finally the media is always looking for false conflicts between Cristiano and his club, mates, coach... While Messi is always receiving praises.
Many football professionals admit that, even when Cristiano plays better than Messi, he's not gonna win the golden ball because the advertising around him is not as powerful as it is around Messi
Ronaldo is "the perfect player" no matter he is in a difficult position he can score goals in a spectacular angle
East or west.. CR7 is the best!

3Luis Suarez
The goal machine
Over nutmeg master
Pure skill dribbler
Immense player
Amazing player he's the premier leagues top goal scorer enough said even the goal keepers are just left amazed they don't stand a chance he's to good
He's currently the best striker in the world counting his recent form. His goals and skills speaks for himself. He might be a defaulter off field but on field he's a top player, you definitely want a player like him in your team.
He sends chills down the spine to all the defenders in the epl.

4Robin Van Persie
He is one of the best in the world. Probably 3rd best striker. He won the goldon boot last season and wn the player of the year award. He is top scorer this season 10 goals for Manchester unite everyone fights for him. He works hard get paid socres and has respect for every team especially Arsenal and Feyenoord his formal team.
Robin van Persie is an incredible striker and has already proved his worth at one of the biggest clubs in the world. He and Rooney have led United to the title this year. He is surely the top striker in the premiership and possibly world too!
He is the main reason why man utd won the league this year. Hit the ground running from his first game, has made Rooney look average.

6Robert Lewandowski
Amazing ball control, amazing hold up play... This guy is pure quality! He's one of the only strikers on this list that can actually play without the ball by opening up space for him self and others.
Great Player, All the big teams want him like Munich and United but I think he should stay at Dortmund. He can head the ball, he's fast and can also dribble past defenders, his first touch is amazing, lots of power while holding the ball, running or shooting and a very clinical finisher.
Pure sniper, rarely misses an opportunity
More comments about Robert Lewandowski

7Radamel Falcao
His finishing ability is class, great in the air and a success everywhere he goes, easily the best striker in the world!
I think h e is very talented player he is good finisher and team player I think he can be very successful in bigger team like barceona, and chelsea
This guy is quick, cunning, and puts the ball where the goalie can't get it; easily the best striker on this list.

8Fernando Torres
He is hard working and will do anything for his team.. He will never give up. He can be the best if he has the right push..
High mentality. Still passing to other teammate even other teammate doesn't pass to him. He need other team. Just not chelsea.
Improved his football skills excellently
A hard working player

The Contenders

11Neymar
Neymar can beat any defender that you put in front of him. He's got speed, accuracy and perfect timing. All he lacks is strngth but other than that he should be top 10
How come this Brazilian wonderkid isn't in the top 25?
He has got extreme skill and also brilliant pace and accuracy..
He is my favorite soccer player because of his ball control his amazing goals and especially dribbles

13Demba Ba

Unplayable would love to see him at Arsenal or chelsea


14Didier Drogba
He can shoot the ball from a every far distance.. His shot is very powerful. Keeper are afraid to catch the ball but they only blocked it..

15Mario Mandzukic
Simply amazing, my idol
Best striker in the world in terms of headers, he's also the best defensive striker. He plays the ball on both sides of the pitch.
Maybe not the best striker but definitely the most underrated. Very fast for his height and can find the ball with his head in any situation.

17Klass Jan Huntelaar
Bad euro championship but over 40 goals for schalke

aido17


18Mario Gomez
No external
Force has ever dominated him

19David Villa
He is not a old fashion striker as Lewandowski or Zlatan, he is more of a wing man but he is deadly comming from the wing, penetrating the center and shooting with an assassin precision. He can use both of his legs, has speed, class, precision... And I think Barca made a mistake when they sold it to Atletico Madrid."El guaje" is and alwasy will be a top class wing-striker.
Spain's hero none can match him he is the best should be in top 10
Best striker ever seen.

20Mario Balotelli
HE SUPPOSE TO BE AMONG TOP 10 BEST STRIKER IN THE WORLD WITH IS CURRENT FORM.
This is a joke balotelli is the best penalty taker in the world I don't understand how he is not top 10 yet hunterlaa and Torres are, he's a monster and can do defenders for fun...
At least top 10. More like top 5.

21Safee Sali
Has yet to prove himself as the best striker in ASEAN football like he used to 3 years ago. Call him what you want, you just can't deny he's the best. Don't forget his spectacular performance against Liverpool where he scored a brace in a matter of 4 minutes...
This guy has totally worked for malaysia. Please vote

22Burak Yilmaz

61Marouane Fellaini
Hasnt Played in Europe since out classing everton single handedly for S. Bucharest, so basically transformed into a £30million rated striker at a much tougher pace bit in excellent style... Belguim isn't an easy team to break into never mind be a star performer... Manchester United at Home this season was easily 1 of the best single petformances of recent years and carried it on all season long and a safe bet to be a big contender for the best attacking midfielder in the Prem next season.

62Rodrigo Palacio

63Hamza Younés
He live in islamabad house noI

64Mpeli Mwakibinga
He is more than Messi and Ronaldo combined. He is fast, pressurising and can give you a pain in the neck if you know what I mean. His dream is to play for the England first team and Liverpool also getting as many trophies as he can as a professional footballer.

65Diego Milito
Best player in Internazionale

66Papiss Cissé

67Loïc Rémy

68Nicklas Bendtner

The Egyptian star the 4th pyramid is now shining for Egypt and basel a probable move to atletico or liverpool will hopefully help him get the potential to be recognized as one of th e beststrikerrs in football

71Emile Heskey
