Ranking of the World’s best strikers right now.

Ranking of the World's best strikers right now.

The best strikers in world football have been identified and listed with Juventus specialist Cristiano Ronaldo coming in at fifth spot.

Ronaldo started his career as a winger but is now he is generally seen as an out-and-out striker is Serie A’s top scorer with 29 goals this season. But the man ranked No 1 in football magazine FourFourTwo’s countdown is a player with a record-equalling 40 Bundesliga goals this season: Robert Lewandowski.

The Bayern Munich star is hailed as having “everything in his locker and he’s always a step ahead of everyone else. His finishing is unparalleled.”

Harry Kane comes in second (for now) with the Tottenham striker labeled “a Swiss Army knife” for his expertise to do everything from score to drop deep and set up play. (Note: FFT have ranked forwards such as Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe separately to strikers.)


Dortmund’s Erling Haaland is the youngest player in the top 10 as the 20-year-old Borussia Dortmund striker is already in third spot, havingfound the back of the net 39times in 39 club games this season.

Romelu Lukaku in fourth is deserving of his place after he guided Inter Milan’s rise to becoming champions in Italy. However, there is – perhaps surprisingly – no room for Luis Suarez, despite his goals pushing Atletico Madrid to the top of the table in La Liga.

His fellow veteran and Manchester United Uruguayan Edinson Cavani make into the top 10. Here is the full list.

10. Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton)

9. Andre Silva (Eintracht Frankfurt)

8. Edinson Cavani (Man United)

7. Ciro Immobile (Lazio)

6. Karim Benzema (Real Madrid)

5. Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus)

4. Romelu Lukaku (Inter Milan)

3. Erling Haaland (Borussia Dortmund)

2. Harry Kane (Tottenham)

1. Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich

There is no point of contention with Karim Benzema, who’s dazzled since Ronaldo left Madrid, or the steady Ciro Immobile. Although it’s reasonably a surprise to see Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin sneak into the top 10.

Surprise absentees include AC Milan veteran Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Brazilian strikers Gabriel Jesus or Roberto Firmino (after a season where he’s struggled), or Wolves No 9 Raul Jimenez who may well have been ruled out by injury.
