Top 10 Centre-Backs Who Could Be Centre-Forwards

In honor of David Luiz's well-taken opener against Bolton, I've decided to make a list of the world's top 10 centre-backs who could also function as top-class centre-forwards.

On Saturday, Matt Le Tissier had this to say about Luiz's goal:

It wasn't an easy chance by any means but he took a touch and bent it into the far corner and showed a technique a centre forward would be proud of.

You look at the way he defends and how comfortable he looks when he gets in the opposition box and think he is playing in the wrong position.

While it's unlikely that Chelsea will be changing Luiz's position anytime soon, there are a number of other centre-backs like Luiz who excel in the opposition's box and could surely hold their own as centre-forwards.

Here they are.
