“When you are 4-0 up you should never lose 7-1.” Lawrie McMenemy

Winning 7-0 is only possible with extremely talented forwards (strikers) in a team which are arranged specifically to score the goal. They are the main strikers when it comes to the net of opponents. Due to their ability to score, forwards are the most expensive players of a team. Let’s have an insight into the list of top FIFA strikers:

2006 FIFA World Cup (Germany)

• Hernán Crespo (Argentina)
• Thierry Henry (France)
• Miroslav Klose (Germany)
• Luca Toni (Italy)
