The World Cup is just around the corner, and fans eagerly anticipate which players will take to the field and score some spectacular goals. If you’re looking for players who could potentially light up the tournament, here are five strikers who are in great form and could make a significant impact.
Lionel Messi has been in red-hot form for PSG this season, scoring an incredible six goals in just ten appearances. The Argentine superstar is widely regarded as one of the best players in the world. And he will be looking to lead his country to glory at This year’s World Cup.
He is in splendid form on the National Team. Last Two matches for Argentina, Messi scored a brace.
The Barcelona striker has been in red-hot form over the past few months, scoring an incredible 34 goals in 32 appearances across all competitions. He also netted a hat-trick in Poland’s opening World Cup Qualifier against Latvia, as they cruised to a 5-0 victory.
Lewandowski is one of the most dangerous strikers in the world in their current form. And will be looking to continue his scoring spree at the World Cup next year. If he can stay fit and firing, there’s no reason why he can’t lead Poland to a deep run in the tournament.
Karim Benzema has been in scintillating form for Real Madrid this season, scoring 19 goals in 21 appearances. The Frenchman has been a critical player for Los Blancos as they look to defend their La Liga title. And he will be crucial if they hope to win the Champions League for a third consecutive year.
Benzema is a superb striker who is equally adept at scoring goals and creating them for others. He has excellent technique and is a ruthless finisher in front of the goal. His movement off the ball is also perfect, and he always looks to get on the end through balls or crosses.
The 31-year-old has been one of the best European strikers over the past few years, and he would be a great addition to any team at the World Cup.
Cristiano Ronaldo always puts on a show no matter what team he plays for. The Portuguese striker is currently lighting up Premier League with Manchester United. There is no reason to believe he couldn’t do the same at the World Cup. At 36 years old, Ronaldo is still in his prime and will be a force to be reckoned with in Qatar.
With England’s all-time leading goalscorer Wayne Rooney retired from international football, the Three Lions need a new talisman. Step forward, Harry Kane. The Tottenham Hotspur striker has been in scintillating form over the past few seasons. And he looks poised to lead England’s charge at the Qatar World Cup.
Kane has proven himself a prolific goalscorer at the highest level, having won the Premier League Golden Boot in both 2015/16 and 2016/17. He also has experience playing on the big stage, having represented England at Euro 2016 and the 2018 World Cup.
The 26-year-old is enjoying his best-ever season for the Spurs, scoring 28 goals in 32 appearances across all competitions. He has also chipped in with seven assists, proving that he is not just a goal-getter but also a creator.
With Kane leading the line, England has a real chance of going deep into the Qatar World Cup and potentially even winning it.
