Top 10 Best Strikers In The World

10. PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG

There is no doubt that Aubameyang's body language for Arsenal in the 2020/2021 season suggests a player who feels he deserved a better club for his talent.

The Gabon midfielder has been Arsenal's marksman for four years after joining the team in 2018. He has registered a total of 64 goals in 114 games for the Gunners.

He has, however, not found his form for 2020/2021, scoring only 10 goals, with two coming from the penalty spot.

Despite all of these downs, Aubemeyang's record as a clinical striker is not in doubt, with the Arsenal captain having registered over 200 goals in his career.

When Luiz Suarez was in the most euphemistic term, being offloaded by Barcelona as excess weight to Atletico Madrid, fans felt one of the most formidable striker ever to play the game was finished.

3. KAREEM BENZEMA

Benzema was at a time thought to be buried after the emergence and dominance of Cristiano Ronaldo as Madrid's main star.

While Benzema continued to register great scoring tally for a striker during those years, most of the media coverage was focused on Ronaldo. 

Even after the departure of the Portuguese, more than a few critics and analysts believed the Frenchman would not turn up to the responsibility.

He, however, didn't take long for the predatory striker to silent naysayers and established himself as a prolific alternative.

In the 2020/2021 season, Benzema scored a total of 29 goals, with 23 coming from Laliga where he gave Lionel Messi, the eventual league top scorer, a run for his money.

2. CRISTIANO RONALDO

Despite being left winger for most of his career, Cristiano Ronaldo has no doubt settled into the role of a marksman since sharing the position with Kareem Benzema during his Real Madrid days.

Ronaldo Not Top Goal Scorer

However, the 36-year-old Portuguese forward has not shown signs of slowing down despite his age and was able to register 39 goals for the 2020/2021 season.

A record that was only bettered by Barcelona ace Lionel Messi and Bayern Munich Robert Lewandowski.

Ronaldo is highly regarded by many as not just a seasoned striker but one of the best players in the world.

He has a total of 5 ballon d or, the highest for any striker, and has won 4 European golden shoes, the highest for any current active striker.

In a recent interview marking his 20th football anniversary, Ronaldo told fans that while he may not be able to give them another 20 years of playing, he would put out his best performances whenever he is opportune to play.

He has been on the top of his game for a long time and does not look to be slowing down anytime soon, with the 32-year-old Poland and Bayern Munich striker still finding the net more times than the number of games he has played this season.

Lewandoski holds the record for scoring the fastest number of consecutive goals in one match after hitting an outstanding 5 goals in 9 minutes against VFL Wolfsburg during the 2014/2015 season.
