5 best strikers in the world this season
Everyone is searching for the world's best footballer. Some people are exaggerating up their favorite player so much, that it is hard to find out, whom you should consider as the "goat". In history, some of the well-known strikers include the likes of Thierry Henry and Pele.
Strikers have always been a fundamental part of every team’s attack as they are providing goals for their club.
If your striker is in a bad form or misses his chances, you can see that in a team's point amount. These players can win, but also lose your team titles, so it makes sense to get the best possible attacker in your squad.
This article provides you with the currently best players in this position. (Only players that made their majority of games in this role are considered). The criteria to this list are the numbers this season, individual performance and importance for the team.
Lionel Messi is definitely worth to be mentioned, as he is also an insane striker. However, the Argentinian played most of his games as a right-winger and will, therefore, be mentioned on a slide about this position.
Players that just missed out and should be included in a top 10: Antoine Griezmann, Robert Lewandowski, Pierre-Emerick Aubamaeyang, Edinson Cavani, Luis Suarez.
#5 Harry Kane
Kane is not only the captain of England but also the team’s most expensive player. At only 25 years old, he already managed to find the net over 191 times.
Consistently scoring at least 20 times in Premier League for his club Tottenham over the last five seasons.
A huge number, but his Champions League record looks even more impressive. In the 17 games he played in the competition, he managed to bang in 14 goals and assisted another 3.
His playing style is comparable to a target man. Due to his height, Kane is able to get at the end of crosses or long balls and either lay the ball off or make a great finish.
His positioning is world-class and he seems able to strengthen out nearly every opponent’s defender. Despite his size and clunky appearance, he is also on a very good technical level. Another great aspect is his ambitiousness as he often tries to get through an injury as fast as possible, standing on the pitch even though he might not be 100% fit.
In this season, he can already call 17 league goals to his name, despite missing four games due to torn ligaments. His influence on the team is not only due to his leadership, but also seen on the scoresheet, scoring 30% of the team’s goals.
