The best football strikers ever

In football the striker is the player whose main goal is to score as many goals as possible. There have been many great strikers, but who are the greatest strikers ever?









1

Pel

Pele It is not surprisingly that Pel is our greatest striker ever, if you only look at his statistics you will see why. The Brazilian scored 1281 goals in 1363 games, a number which hasn't been repeated by any player until today. Pel scored goals on several ways, always looking for a possibility to shoot on goal. He was a great header although he wasn't the tallest, he scored several bicycle goals but the way he scored most of his goals was with he's great kick, Pel could shoot very well with both of his legs.

2

Ferenc Pusks

Ferenc Pusks Hungarian player Pusks was a great striker, he had one of the best shots in football history. This helped him score a lot of goals , he scored 513 goals in 528 matches. As a captain of Hungary Puskas scored 84 times in 85 matches, helping them win a gold medal at the 1952 Olympics, and a place in the final of the 1954 FIFA World Cup.

3

Ronaldo

Ronaldo Ronaldo was the greatest striker of the late '90s and early '00s. In this period he was just unstoppable, he could score from any position at any moment. The Brazilian always scored a lot of goals at any team he played with. At the 2006 World Cup Ronaldo scored his 15th World Cup goal and became record holder of scoring the most goals at World Cups.

4

Diego Maradona

Diego Maradona Maradona only on four, surprised? No this list is about the best strikers ever and Maradona was more an attacking midfielder, however Maradona was still a great finisher, he could score out of incredible positions, with incredible shots but he also created a scoring change from nowhere by dribbling past defenders like they were not there. It helped him score a lot of goals.

5

Eusbio

Eusbio Eusbio, nicknamed "The Black Panther" was the first big player born in Africa. He is Benficas all-time top scorer with 638 goals in 614 matches. Eusbio impressed with Portugal at the 1966 World Cup where he became top scorer with 9 goals.

6

Marco van Basten

Marco van Basten Ajax and Milan hero, van Basten was a great striker. He won the European Championship with Holland in 1988, becoming top scorer of the tournament with 5 goals. He was a very talented player but was forced to retire his career early at age 30 due to an ankle injury.

7

Gerd Mller

Gerd Mller Mller won the World Cup with West-Germany in 1974 , he scored a total of 68 goals in 62 matches for the national team. He was nicknamed "Der Bomber" because of his incredible scoring ability. He scored 401 goals in 441 matches as a striker of Bayern Munich.

8

Fernando Peyroteo

Fernando Peyroteo Few will have heard about him, but Fernando Peyroteo is the player with the highest goals per game ratio (1.68). Compare this with Pel who has a ratio of 0.96 goals per game. Peyroteo played as a striker of Sporting during the 40's where he scored 331 goals in 187 games. Although it was a different time without European football, he remains one of the greatest strikers ever.

9

Arthur Friedenreich

Arthur Friedenreich Friedenreich played even before WWI, from 1909 to 1935. There is not much footage of him but his number of goals is amazing. There is confusion about the exact number, some say he scored 1239 goals in 1329 games, while others suggest it were 1329 goals in 1239 games. Friedenreich was nicknamed "The King of Football" before Pel took this title.

10

Romario

Romario He is one of the few players that scored more than 1000 goals. He was the striker of Barcelona's dream team during the early 90's that was coached by Johan Cruyff. He won the World Cup with Brazil in 1994, winning the golden ball for best player.

Thierry Henry is by far the best striker of all time
Ronaldo Messiah    November 5, 2016 at 4:07 am
Pele played in a league with no competition and at a time the opponents weren't so good. Same applies for most in this list. Best player of all time should be between Ronaldo and Messi.

Where is sandor cocsin? He was part of the magical magyars that ruled world football in 1950s. This guy scored 11 goals in 1954 world Cup with 2 hatricks. Many believe he was more lethal than ferenc puskas. He has the best goal per game ratio with 75 goals scored from 68 international matches. Even gerd muller has scored only 68 goals from 62 appearances.

Everyone seems to have forgotten about the LEGEND of Jimmy Greaves, one of the most prolific strikers ever
Da Rula   March 24, 2016 at 3:21 am
Some people here seems to vote for "best overall player", but the question is "best striker". My Top Three Striker is this: (1) Gerd Müller (2) Pele (3) Messi (4) Ronaldo And this is fact when you look at "goal per match" statistics of this players in their career. Then the result can only be this list, all other things are voted by sympathy or voted because voters think: "i come from same country than the player i have chosen"

THE BRAZLIAN RONALDO WAS THE COMPLETE OUT AND OUT STRIKER GIFTED IS A UNDERSTAMENT FOR ME! THE LEGEND RONALDO IS THE NUMBER 1 MAN IN HIS PRIME A MONSTER
Arunesh Mondol   February 19, 2016 at 4:18 am
With due respect to the players in the list,One player I thought could be added is the Argentine Goal scoring machine - The Batigol - Gabriel Batistuta.

god   January 12, 2016 at 7:26 pm
Muller.pushkash.pele.ronaldo nazario.von basten. Are the best real strikers. Messi has done nothing in terms of national hounors so without it he can't be among the top ten
ims   January 12, 2016 at 4:42 am
1-Messi 2-Pele 3-Maradonna 4-Ronaldo 5-Van Basten 6-Cristiano.R 7-Pusks 8-Giuseppe Meazza 9-Eusbio 10-Gerd Muller
sally Ibrahimu   January 3, 2016 at 10:46 pm
Messi is incredible you can't compare with rubbish cr7
Masa    December 20, 2015 at 5:10 pm
The best striker should be weighed against a criteria of club and national as well as individual awards. Therefore this list should be shuffled and allow a critical scrutiny of the end result. Typically, no person in their right minds would say C7 is better than the legendary Pele let alone the meticulous Gerd Muller
leocantbecompared   November 28, 2015 at 8:24 pm
WERE'S MESSI HE IS DA BEST
Ishaan   November 22, 2015 at 10:23 am
Where is cr7 how can he not be there
asx   November 15, 2015 at 3:05 pm
LORD BENDTNER!!!
c.ronaldo   November 15, 2015 at 1:54 pm
C.ronaldo is best player against messi
Stavan   November 13, 2015 at 10:11 am
Yes pele is first but what about messi
Roman   November 7, 2015 at 7:16 pm
It is ridiculous to have Gerd Mller not on No 1. He is by far the best ever. Just look at his striker qualities. He played ten years long as best striker in the world. Nobody scored as often as he did. Basten for example only played a few years on world class level and won only one EC. Mller seems to be underrated, because he was no elegant player.
vivek   October 6, 2015 at 6:09 pm
Wtf where is Rooney! !
Awal Suraj   October 1, 2015 at 11:12 am
Pel as been named as the best player ever but Leo Messi shout be considered in the list.
emadahmed   September 9, 2015 at 4:56 pm
good article.
alfie gibbs   September 3, 2015 at 8:37 am
definately gerd muller
lungsboy   August 18, 2015 at 6:19 am
but CR7 is the best than messi
Jush   August 9, 2015 at 10:17 am
Neither messi nor Ronaldo is total striker. The best total striker ever is undoubtedly Ronaldo #9. If he didnt have that knee injury, he will break many records..
kai   August 8, 2015 at 12:51 am
Cristiano Ronaldo no doubt!!
sex   July 20, 2015 at 7:23 pm
RONALDO 22
julian   July 14, 2015 at 10:18 pm
HENRY SHOULDN't b left out of d best ten.
davson60   July 13, 2015 at 7:38 pm
this list is fake ,messi is the best no doubts.
Thor   June 21, 2015 at 1:22 am
Is this list made by a brazilian or what? Many brazilian players in this list, but lots of good players from other nations was forgotten. Not one italian player in the list and only one german player. But five brazilian players are in the list. This is a joke or what? This is not a neutral list.
