Top 10 Best Soccer Forwards

The Top Ten
1 Lionel Messi Lionel Andrés "Leo" Messi (born 24 June 1987) is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Spanish club Barcelona. He is also known as one of the greatest football players of all time. He was born in Rosario, Argentina on June 24th, 1987.

Lionel Messi is absolutely better than Cristiano Ronaldo. He scored more goals than Ronaldo, his passes are more accurate than Ronaldo, he always leads his team and won nearly every match he played. Sometimes, he has chance to score but he passes the ball to his teammate. He also lets his teammate to have the penalty when his teammate doesn't score in that match. He is by far the best footballer in history. I respect Cristiano Ronaldo, but I have to say Lionel Messi is better.

Only played in one system with all great players.

Who cares if Ronaldo is good Messi is better lie they say, to cover Ronaldo you check his right foot but for Messi you pray to god

Yes messi is the best..

2 Cristiano Ronaldo Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro (born 5 February 1985) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays as a forward for Serie A club Juventus and captains the Portugal national team.
