We are all in one way related to the round leather game of football. Either we play it on the field,as a videogame,watch on TV,support as a fan or sponsor/create platforms for footballers to perform.
Am sticking to on-field performers for today,we have attackers,midfielders,defenders and goalkeepers. All four departments contribute to the success of the team. Though the strikers naturally are the focal points,the stars of the team,they get all the attention. Let’s not forget that some players in other positions have performed so well they get the same respect like or even more than these attackers. Players like Manuel Neuer,Buffon,Sergio Ramos,David Luiz,Kevin Debruyne,Pirlo,Zidane,Cafu and many more. Nowadays it’s more about your impact and contribution in games rather than your position.
Below is my countdown for the current best ten attackers in Football. This list is based on player’s performance over the last 365 days.
10. Edinson Cavani🇺🇾: nicknamed *El Matador*. Plays for Paris saint germain. We all knew the potential of the Uruguayan even when he was overshadowed by Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s presence. He’s an instant finisher when in the box.
9. Antoine Griezmann🇫🇷: The French international currently plays for Atletico Madrid. He’s full of tricks. A key factor for Diego Simeon and France national side.
8. Sergio Aguero🇦🇷: Kun is one of the best attackers in world football. He’s fast,clever and has eye for goal. Aguero was one of the crucial reasons Manchester City won the title last season.
7.Harry Kane: The England captain near perfect record in front of goal is frightening. Last year harry Kane was the highest goalscorer of the calendar year beating the likes of cavani,lewandowski,ronaldo and messi. Kane is very clinical in front of goal.
6. Luis Suarez🇺🇾: Very clever,has teamwork. During his days at Anfield,he and Daniel sturridge formed a deadly duo. At Camp Nou,Suarez alongside Messi and Neymar became the world best attacking trio. At his national side,he’s partnership with Cavani has yielded great results.
5. Robert Lewandowski🇵🇱: Lewy holds the record as the fastest player to score five goals in 8 minutes,though it was against Wolfsburg. Let’s not forget it took Ronaldo two games to get his hat trick against the wolves at the Uefa Champions league. Lewandowski is your complete striker.
4. Mohamed Salah🇪🇬: called the Egyptian Messi. Last season Salah won numerous individual awards including the PFA player award and African footballer of the year. Salah’s performance was so good Liverpool fans forgot Coutinho.
3. Cristiano Ronaldo🇵🇹: 5 time ballon d’or winner Ronaldo has written his name in history books as one of the greatest goalscorers to grace the football scene. Having scored over 50 hat tricks as well as 500+ career goals,that says it all. On a good or bad day,defenders and goalkeepers fear this Real Madrid attacker.
2. Neymar🇧🇷: Samba kid,currently the most expensive footballer. Plays for PSG. Neymar is a very talented player,has eye for goal,loves dribbling and fun to watch. Players like this make football look easy. Its just a matter of time before the former Barcelona man pick up his ballon d’or.
1. Lionel Messi🇦🇷: Probably the greatest of all time. Has one of the deadliest left foot in world football. Also a 5 time ballon d’or winner and the focal point of FC Barcelona. Leo is pure talent and has scored 500+ goals in his career.
