Strikers are the players who play nearest to the opposition’s goal, so they are mainly responsible for scoring goals. This advanced position brings with it limited defensive responsibilities, but strikers still require intelligence, as well as speed of execution and thought, to perform well in their role.
Boots for Scoring Goals!
Preferred by the likes of Edinson Cavani, Daniel Sturridge and the legendary scorer of five goals in nine minutes Robert Lewandowski - the Hypervenom Phantom II showcases as the ultimate striker's choice. Boasting a super thin and soft NikeSkin upper which moulds to your foot delivers a natural and controlled strike while the studs and split toe design enhances agility and acceleration.
The Puma ONE 18.1 and Future 18.1 might not be the most popular models on the boot market but the attack-minded Puma silos are headlined by two of the best strikers in world football Sergio Aguero and Antoine Griezmann respectively.
adidas also offer their X 17 range for strikers through their X 17+ Purespeed and X 17.1, worn by Dybala, Salah, Son, Suarez, Morata, Jesus, and Benzema. The X is a boot designed for quick movements, enhanced acceleration and deadly agility to help create chaos on the pitch thus making it the perfect silo for the forward positioned player.
The Hypervenom isn't the only football boot made for scoring goals by Nike, the Mercurial Vapor XII and Superfly VI is worn by arguably the most deadly strikers including stand-outs Lukaku, Martial, Mertens, Sanchez, Vardy, and lets not forget about the greatest goal scorer of all time Cristiano Ronaldo.
