Best Strikers of 2012-2013


The Top TenXW

1Lionel MessiLionel Andrés "Leo" Messi is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Spanish club Barcelona and the Argentina national team.

Pace, dribbling, finishing, passes, positioning. Everything is on ***** Barcelona has made the best of him.

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

Obviously he is the best, people please do just see his achievements, record breaking performances, the trophies he has won for his team, his style of play, his no. Of goal, you will be stunned!

Best in the world 4 times!

2Luis SuarezLuis Alberto Suárez Díaz is a Uruguayan professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Barcelona and the Uruguay national team as a striker.

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 RonaldoCristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro, GOIH is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Portugal national team.

Ronaldo is "the perfect player" no matter he is in a difficult position he can score goals in a spectacular angle

Ronaldo is the complete striker and his aerial ability is second to none. He should be regarded as one of the best on all time but because of Messi being around he isn't. For a winger to have scored as many goals as he has, he deserves to be number 1.

Cristiano Ronaldo has proven himself in the Barclays Premier League and is an outstanding player.

His the best not Messi and number 2 should be neymar

4Robin Van PersieDutch footballer from Rotterdam born on August 6 1983. Currently plays for the Turkish club Fenerbahçe S.K and The Netherlands national football team as the number 11. Robin Van Persie is known for playing for Arsenal and Manchester United, though his most notable goal was his header against Spain more.

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!

5Zlatan IbrahimovicZlatan Ibrahimović is a Swedish professional footballer who plays as a striker for French club Paris Saint-Germain and the Sweden national team for which he is captain.

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 - aido17

Without him, world cup in Brazil is nothing.

6Robert LewandowskiRobert Lewandowski is a Polish professional footballer who plays as a striker for German club Bayern Munich, and captains the Poland national team.

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.

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

10Sergio AgueroSergio Leonel "Kun" Agüero is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a striker for English club Manchester City and the Argentina national team.

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

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

He has the perfect skills to be a football player, he has the speed to run, and kicking power

Best chance creator and scorer

13NeymarNeymar da Silva Santos Júnior, commonly known as Neymar or Neymar Jr., is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Spanish club FC Barcelona and the Brazil national team as a forward or winger, and is also the captain of the national team.

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.

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.

He's best defensive striker in world and best in term of headers. Best striker in bundesliga along side lewandowski
