Top 10 strikers who will play in the 2018 World Cup
Ten of the deadliest strikers expected to make an impact at the World Cup next year...
The World Cup has been blessed with fantastic goalscorers over the years.
Gerd “The Bomber” Muller (West Germany) Paolo Rossi (Italy), Ronaldo (Brazil), Gabriel Batistuta (Argentina), Marco Van Basten (The Netherlands) are among the great scorers who have graced the World Cup at various stages and lit up the global spectacle with their amazing scoring exploits.
Russia 2018 promises to be one of the better ones as a host of sharpshooters will be leading the line for various nations.
Injury and fitness permitting, these ten players should be high on the list for the Golden Boot come Russia 2018.
#10 André Silva (Portugal)
One of the new generation of strikers on the list, Silva will be looking to fill a role that has been a problematic one for Portugal; a top goal-scoring striker.
Ever since the retirement of the last good goal scorer that A Selecção had; Pauleta in 2006, it has been a struggle that has been ameliorated by the out-of-this-world exploits of Cristiano Ronaldo.
In Silva, Portugal seems to have finally found a top goal-scoring striker who can propel the team to victory at crucial times.
With his instinctive finishing abilities, good hold up technique and aerial prowess, he will look to do great things at the World Cup and should be one of the stars of the European Champions (behind Cristiano Ronaldo of course).
He has scored 11 goals in 17 outings for Portugal, though a lot have come against mediocre opposition.
