Torres and Drogba:  Ranking the Top 25 Strike Partnerships of All Time

The signing of Fernando Torres has been the source of much debate in the previous two weeks.  One of the questions asked is whether they are the two best strikers of all time to play together.

To further look into it, here we give you the 25 best strike pairs to play together.  While modern tactics have went away from the traditional pair of forwards, we have included on this list two players who played in three-man forward lines.  This allowed pairings such as Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo to be considered despite not playing in a traditional 4-4-2 system.

The 25 pairings on this list all played in markedly different styles, but they had one thing in common.  They were a nightmare for defenders to handle, and if the opposition focused heavily on one player, the other was sure to punish them.

Feel free to add your own favorites in the comments section, and debate where you think Torres and Drogba will fit into this list when all is said and done.
