Best Strikers of 2012-2013

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.

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!

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

Even an injured Messi scored 46 goals in just 31 games of league along with 8 in UEFA champions league.

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.

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 ...more

I cannot believe he is number 5. Ronaldo would kill all these players. The only reason Messi has "skill" is because he is surrounded by Great players. Such as is you put messi in Argentina what good does he make? Ronaldo is the best striker no doubt. That is why Barcelona lost twice againt Madrid and Argentina will be poor in the 2014 World cup. CR7 is best in the world and will die the soccer legent

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.

I think that Ronaldo is the best striker because he is strong in shoot 100games 100 goals
And freestyle! Good in control the ball, good pass...

3 Luis Suarez Luis Alberto Suárez Díaz (born 24 January 1987) is a Uruguayan professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Atletico Madrid and the Uruguay national team as a striker.

GREAT PLAYER! Everything you need to be a world class player he's got. He can dribble he can shoot he can turn players inside out and he's got one of the cleverest football brains in the game he sees scoring oportunities that other players wouldn't dream of trying and pulls them off LUIS SUAREZ THE FIGHTER THE MAGICIAN THE KING

He is an amazing player, and sometimes he makes defenders look foolish. He scores unbelievable goals from impossible positions for many strikers. He can play as a lone striker, and he has anything one can expect from a striker with the exception of good attitude. I love so much.

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.

A beast. Very gifted and talented player. Could have gotten a golden boot in 2012-2013 instead of Van Persie easily were it not for his action against Ivanovic. Still a world class player and possible slightly better than van persie with more time left to ooze more goals out.

4 Zlatan Ibrahimovic Zlatan Ibrahimović (3 October 1981) is a Swedish professional footballer who plays for an Italian club AC Milan and the Sweden national team for which he is captain.

He is off to psg where he will destroy the French league

Just amazing striker rly strong player and don't afraid to play the ball his way

Zlatan dominates the world as a striker

Without him, world cup in Brazil is nothing.

5 Robin Van Persie Robin van Persie is a Dutch coach and former professional footballer who played as a striker. Regarded as one of the best strikers of his generation, he is the all-time top scorer for the Netherlands men's national team. He is currently an assistant manager at boyhood club Feyenoord in his first managerial more.

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!

Best striker/passer in the game today...much much more than your average goal scorrer. Wonderful technique and movement. Sad to say that most teammates also in the Dutch squad lack the quality to understand how to properly feed him with good pases.

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.

6 Robert Lewandowski Robert Lewandowski (born 21 August 1988) is a Polish professional footballer who plays as a striker for German club Bayern Munich, and captains the Poland national team.

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.

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.

Excelent finisher and has great mobility for a pure striker. Great header and positioning plus great ball control. Has really good power and plays exactly how his position should be played in the dortmund system

Some pure facts:

22 goals in BL 2012/2013
Voted best BL player 2012/2013
23 goals so far 2013/2014 - leading top scorers table
Second at goals + assists in whole BL
10 goals in CL
4 goals against Real Madrid in CL semi fnal
Scored hat-trick against Bayer Munchen
Most important heel (goal)of 2012/2013 season against Bayern Munchen giving BVB the title
And so on.. Ah just about to forget
Scored in 13 CONSECUTIVE BL games- best result in the BL whole history bar legendary MULER in 60's but the still serie still continues

7 Radamel Falcao Radamel Falcao García Zárate, also known as Radamel Falcao, or simply Falcao, is a Colombian professional footballer who plays as a striker for English club Chelsea on loan from French club Monaco, and captain of the Colombia national team.

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

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.

Messi is more of a winger so this has to go to radamel falcao. Just go on youtube and look at his best goals.

8 Sergio Aguero Sergio Leonel "Kun" Agüero is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a striker for Spanish club Barcelona 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

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

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

He's the best one he's has a lot of assist and goals he should at least be in the top 3

9 Fernando Torres

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

Greatest player in the world. Hats of! This man is dangerous in important games. Man who score in such game is a world class player.

No one can compare in winning records

He is trying to get his best reputation again... We must support him so that he will beat messi and cr7 as the world class striker..

10 Wayne Rooney Wayne Mark Rooney is an English professional footballer who plays for and captains both Manchester United and the England national team.

Rooney is the best because you see him scoring goals with any part of his body his not like messi that only scores goals with his feet. He can do awesome bycicle kicks and headers he can do anything you want him to.

Well, who has been loyal to Man u, who scored a bicycle kick, Wayne Rooney, Van Persie is a close second though

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

Manchester united best striker I seen. He scored the most beautiful in the premier league

The Contenders
11 Edinson Cavani Edinson Roberto Cavani Gómez is a Uruguayan professional footballer who plays as a striker for Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain and the Uruguay national team.

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

12 Demba Ba

Unplayable would love to see him at Arsenal or chelsea

13 Neymar Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior, born 5 February 1992, commonly known as Neymar or Neymar Jr., is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Ligue 1 club Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and the Brazil national team as a forward or winger, and is also the captain of the national team. Neymar was born on 5th February 1992 in Sao Paulo of Brazil. He started playing international matches at the age of 17. Neymar salary is 9.18 million Euro. As a result, his net worth is about $75 million.

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

How come this Brazilian wonderkid isn't in the top 25?
He has got extreme skill and also brilliant pace and accuracy..

14 Mario 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.

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

15 Karim Benzema Karim Mostafa Benzema is a French professional footballer of Algerian descent who plays for Spanish club Real Madrid and the France national team as a striker.

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

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

Benzema the striker ever better then any one

16 Didier Drogba Didier Yves Drogba Tébily is an Ivorian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Canadian Major League Soccer club Montreal Impact.

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..

17 Klass Jan Huntelaar

Bad euro championship but over 40 goals for schalke

18 Jackson Martinez
19 Mario Gomez Mario Gómez García ( born 10 July 1985) is a German professional footballer who plays as a striker for German club VfL Wolfsburg, and the German national team. When Stuttgart became champions in 2006–07, Gómez contributed 14 goals and seven assists at the age of 21 and was selected as German Footballer of the Year.
20 Javier Hernandez Javier Hernández Balcázar is a Mexican professional footballer who plays as a forward for German club Bayer Leverkusen and the Mexico national team.

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

21 Burak 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

He was one of the best in this year even in CL maybe the best..

22 Daniel Sturridge Daniel Andre Sturridge is an English professional footballer who plays for Premier League club Liverpool and the England national team.

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

Hot Scooer in time..

23 Safee 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

24 David Villa David Villa Sánchez is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a striker and also serves as captain for New York City FC in Major League Soccer.

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.

25 Mario Balotelli

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.


He is extremely good
