Like batsmen score runs in cricket, strikers score goals and win matches for their clubs and countries. Good strikers are hard to come by. They have this unique ability and skill to cut past the defenders and to make themselves available in goal scoring situations. There are various types of strikers present in world football. Some are clinical finishers, sprinters and then there are some who share a high level of athleticism, composure and dribbling abilities. The combo of all these abilities makes a perfect striker. Today, goal striking has been made more easy and coming at a random pace with the light weight footballs and the enhanced training made available to them. Years ago strikers had one strong foot and a weak foot. But world class strikers have shown that strikers have to be two footed to deal with the dynamism of the game.
