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.
We have put together some of the best and most popular boots with professionals for playing up front below.
