The Top Ten

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
[Newest]Best in the world 4 times!

2Cristiano 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
[Newest]His the best not Messi and number 2 should be neymar

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.
[Newest]The best striker... no argument needed!

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.
[Newest]Skill and Shoot is AWESOME!

5Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Zlatan dominates the world as a striker
A beast. At this age and still deadly
He is off to psg where he will destroy the french league


[Newest]He can do everything 😁

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
[Newest]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
[Newest]There is very little that can do what he does

8Wayne 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


He gets anywhere at any time for the ball specially when he wants a header.
[Newest]Wayne rooney is a very good striker and a very good soccer player

9Sergio 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


Kun is my favourite. He needs more speed, shot power and height to level V. Persie
[Newest]Best chance creator and scorer

10Fernando 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
[Newest]No. 1 will be perfect for him.

The Contenders

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

12Edinson Cavani
One word - amazing! He's got everything including pace, work rate, heading ability and his finishing is phenomenal.

13Didier 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..

14Demba Ba
Unplayable would love to see him at Arsenal or chelsea

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
[Newest]He is the best striker in the world 2011/2014

16Mario 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.

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


18Mario Gomez
No external
Force has ever dominated him

19David Villa
Spain's hero none can match him he is the best should be in top 10
Best striker ever seen.
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.

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
[Newest]One of the best striker around.

21Daniel Sturridge
Who is sure to be as good as this guy. He scoring form is almost unbeatable. So deserves a spot on this list. Works so well with his teammates, couldn't ask for more in a striker.
Simply class. Pace, skill, finishing, true striker!
Real go getter..has pace, strengthand confidence can really push liverpool towards top 4 finnish

22Safee 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

23Jackson Martinez
He is a good striker in a bad team needs a move to the epl

24Stephan El Shaarawy

25Mario Gotze

26Carlos Tévez
No one can score a goal like tevez in 2011 that was incredible

27Javier 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
The little pea


28Christian Benteke
Strength, pace, the ability to finish his chances, he was able to become a standout player in his first season in the premier league. One of the best strikers in the world, maybe ever

61Bobby Gonzales
The local top scorer in malaysia league but still did not call up by rajabebal

62Marouane 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.

63Rodrigo Palacio

64Hamza Younés
He live in islamabad house noI

65Mpeli 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.

66Diego Milito
Best player in Internazionale
193 goals in his career, compareable to that of kliuvert and bierhoff, and still not considered to be in the top 100 strikers?

67Papiss Cissé

68Nicklas Bendtner

69Dimitar Berbatov

70Mohamed Salah
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
Greatest striker of all time, sometimes he's that good, he misses on purpose in respect for the opposition

72Miroslav Klose

73Nahki Wells

74Graziano Pellè

Best striker for west ham played for Liverpool also played in the English international team
