Top Finishers in World Football

Will Tidey@willtideySenior Manager, GlobalDecember 4, 2012

Who are the best finishers in world football? It’s a conversation that has to start with the game’s preeminent attacking talents, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

We stay in Spain to highlight Atletico Madrid’s Colombian assassin Radamel Falcao, then travel to Serie A in Italy to look at the man they call "the Pharaoh"—Stephan El Shaarawy.

Manchester United’s Robin van Persie deserves a mention, as does his fellow Dutchman Klass-Jan Huntelaar of Schalke in Germany.

And what of Zlatan Ibrahimovic? Anybody who can finish with their back to goal from 35 yards surely deserves a mention here.

In this clip, Bleacher Report Lead Writers Will Tidey and Mike Cummings list some of the best finishers in the game right now.
