We are being graced with a generation of all-out attacking football, which has dramatically increased the quality of the world's average striker.
30-goal a season footballers are no longer a rarity, in fact you may well find more than one in a single league. Some may put this down to a lower standard of defenders compared to a decade a go, however I'm a believer that higher competition and better training methods have increased the average striker considerably.
Here we assess the world's best and most prolific strikers.
