Top 10 Forwards in Football 2021

  • Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar all make it to the list but who comes out on top?
  • All these forwards have enjoyed a great year in front of goal.

The ultimate objective of any footballing side is to score goals and win games. As such, no football team is complete without a proper striker who can find the back of the net on a regular basis.

When we rank the best forwards of 2020, we are not strictly looking at just their goalscoring rates. We’re looking at centre-forwards or number 9s who have led from the front for their respective sides and been effective at their jobs.

It’s a year where we haven’t had the chance to see who gets the Ballon d’Or and as the year draws to a close, it is imperative that we honour the finest footballers from the calendar year. On that note, let’s take a look at the 10 best forwards in 2020.

#10 Erling Haaland

The 20-year-old Borussia Dortmund sensation is surely one of the next big things in football. Viewed as a direct successor to the lion Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Erling Haaland is a relentless goalscoring machine.

It’s a rare thing to see a 20-year-old striker who is so assured and sorted in his ways. He can physically dominate oppositions and his finishing is elite. It looks like he is having fun on the football pitch every time he breaks into the final third and has been nothing short of an inspired signing for Borussia Dortmund.

Ever since joining Dortmund in January, he has scored 23 goals in the Bundesliga alone. He has scored 10 goals from eight appearances so far in the league this term.

Haaland has been virtually unstoppable in the UEFA Champions League as well and has scored a total of 16 goals in the elite European competition over the last two seasons from across 10 appearances.
