7 best wingers in Football at present
Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have dominated the Ballon d'Or since 2008 and have revolutionized the role of a winger in modern football. It is hardly a surprise if you find out that a team's top scorer these days, is a winger.
Tracking back, crossing the ball and penetrating the penalty area at the right moment in order to bag in the goals - have become a fundamental part of any world class winger's characteristics. In this article, we look to name the seven best wingers who are currently active.
#7 Arjen Robben:
The Dutch international is almost in his mid-thirties, but despite his age and frequent injuries, Arjen Robben is still a deadly force in big games and has the ability to make the difference in the hard situations. He tends to cut-in from the right hand, which has become quite a predictable aspect of his game, yet he still manages to pull it off, almost every time.
It only takes one moment of brilliance from the 33-year old, to deliver a well-placed shot that ends up in the back of the net, more often than not.
In the last two seasons at Bayern:
23 goals in 59 appearances.
Won the Bundesliga 2015/2016, 2016/2017 and the DFB Pokal 2016.
