Argentina v Portugal - International Friendly
Perhaps the greatest rivalry of all time

Every year, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo score quite a few goals. This has been happening for so long that I can’t really remember the last time who, apart from the two won it… until Harry Kane did the unthinkable last year.

The Englishman scored 56 goals in 2017, finally putting an end to the Messi-Ronaldo duopoly in this regard—and there is no reason to believe why it won’t happen again. And here are the 5 players who could break it!

#5 Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Real Madrid CF v Borussia Dortmund - UEFA Champions League
Auba is a goal machine

The Gabon captain has been one of the most consistent scorers in the world for a long time. It is actually quite astounding he is still at Borussia Dortmund when most of his best team-mates have tasted the delicacies of foreign shores, only to return back to the Gelsenkirchen.

Aubameyang, however, has stayed put. Or, rather, has been forced to stay put due to the fact that most clubs seemingly have the strikers they want. This is also coupled with the fact that the price tag over the former Milan man is quite steep.

However, none of this changes the fact that he is one of the most lethal players in the world. At 28, he is enjoying the peak years of his career and it shows. With 21 goals from 23 games this season, he ended 2017 on a high and it is only a matter of time for him to pick up from where he left off.
