Kirsty Wigglesworth

With Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud recently scoring a superb goal that showcased power and finesse in his side’s 3-1 victory against West Ham United, it drew into question which other strikers can be as fierce as the Frenchman while also showcasing a deft touch that belies their powerful stature and general play.

For his goal, Giroud brought the ball down dead with his favoured left-foot before rocketing an effort through the legs of the West Ham ‘keeper with his right-foot. In the space of just a second, the 27-year-old showcased gorgeous control matched with a lethal strike, but who are the 10 other strikers who can balance a silky touch with powerful play?
