Best Strikers of 2012-2013


The Top TenXW

1Lionel 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

Best in the world 4 times!

2Luis 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.

The best striker... no argument needed!

3Cristiano Ronaldo

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!

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

His the best not Messi and number 2 should be neymar

4Robin Van Persie

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.

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.

Skill and Shoot is AWESOME!

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

The most comprehensive forward nowadays. Best ball holding ever.

7Radamel Falcao

His finishing ability is class, great in the air and a success everywhere he goes, easily the best striker in the world!

This guy is quick, cunning, and puts the ball where the goalie can't get it easily the best striker on this list.

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

There is very little that can do what he does

8Fernando Torres

High mentality. Still passing to other teammate even other teammate doesn't pass to him. He need other team. Just not chelsea.

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..

Improved his football skills excellently
A hard working player

No. 1 will be perfect for him.

9Wayne Rooney

Rooney is a hard worker, he works very hard for goals. He is a team player. He is all time payer.

He works so hard scores goals and gets assists - aido17

He gets anywhere at any time for the ball specially when he wants a header.

Wayne rooney is a very good striker and a very good soccer player

10Sergio Aguero

Really amazing. I think he has to win the best player of the year. A very special player namely Sergio Kun Aguero

Won the title with man. City - aido17

Kun is my favourite. He needs more speed, shot power and height to level V. Persie

Best chance creator and scorer

The Contenders

11Edinson Cavani

One word - amazing! He's got everything including pace, work rate, heading ability and his finishing is phenomenal.

12Demba Ba

Unplayable would love to see him at Arsenal or chelsea


He is my favorite soccer player because of his ball control his amazing goals and especially dribbles

It's not only his scoring, his passing, his vision, but with Messi and the Barcelona team this kid is destined to be one of the best all around player in the game.

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

He is class and he is very skilful

14Mario Mandzukic

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.

Simply amazing, my idol

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.

15Karim Benzema

Not the best, but certainly one of the best... He scores lots of goals and also racks up assists... A complete player...

Very strong, good passer, good finisher, good sprint speed, good player, what a amazing striker Karim Benzema! He's one of the complete strikers of the world.

Very strong, good header of the ball, very good finisher, can dribble in and out and surprisingly very good passer as well

He is the best striker in the world 2011/2014

16Didier 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..

17Klass Jan Huntelaar

Bad euro championship but over 40 goals for schalke - aido17

18Javier Hernandez

He has the best goals per minute ratio in the premier league. A hard-worker who always gives his best and easily the deadliest striker in europe.

Pacey agile and natural goal scorer he is the Mexican Ruud van Nistelrooy he will be the best next season just watch he is the Little Pea

19Jackson Martinez

He is a good striker in a bad team needs a move to the epl

20Burak Yilmaz

Burak was the best in the champions league. No one can score 8 goals in 8 matches

His finishing shoots, his passes are very dangerous. He came to galatasaray he wa

Top scorer in CL and turkish league so far

One of the best striker around.
