Some of World Football's most dangerous strikers in the last 25 years have the advantage of being left-footed.
Obviously, being left-footed alone is not enough to make a player dangerous. Other attributes, such as composure, skill, power and aerial ability play their part as well.
Still, the fact that left-footed players, never mind left-footed strikers, are a rarity in World Football gives these players a quality that sometimes makes them harder to defend than their right-footed counterparts.
The strikers on this list use, or have used, their left foot to damaging effect throughout their careers. While two players in particular were noted for their inconsistency or inability to live up to their potential, when they were on form they were hard to stop.
Players who are predominantly left-footed are the only ones who make the cut and those who didn't play beyond 1987 were not considered.
