Didier Drogba Reveals Who He Thinks Is The Best Striker In The World
Didier Drogba has had a look at some of the best strikers in the world during the World Cup and the former Chelsea man thinks he knows who the best in the world right now is.
When it comes to knowing about being a good striker there aren't better equipped people out there than Didier Drogba. At his best the former Chelsea man was as good as anyone else in the world.
During his time in the Premier League the Ivorian notched 104 league goals for the Blues, won four Premier League titles and scored the winning penalty in the Champions League final shoot-out against Bayern Munich. He pretty much did it all.
Now Drogba is in Russia for the World Cup as a pundit for the BBC so he's the perfect person to take a look at the strikers at the competition and decide on the best.
Speaking after Portugal's 1-0 win over Morocco on Wednesday afternoon the former Marseille front man revealed he rates Cristiano Ronaldo as the top striker, saying:
"He's the best striker at the moment in the world. He is complete, he can score headers, he can score left foot, right foot, free-kicks and he is always in movement.
"I think for a defender it's very difficult to defend against a player who is always moving and it's easier for a midfield player to find a guy who is always in movement."

For a long time Ronaldo wouldn't have been considered a conventional striker and even now a lot of people would have included Harry Kane above the Real Madrid front man in the list.
But during the tournament the five time Ballon d'Or winner has won all four of Portugal's points for them. He scored a hat-trick in their 3-3 draw with Spain before his goal won the game against Morocco 1-0.
The 33 year old has scored all types of goals in his four so far. He scored a penalty, a long range shot, helped by David de Gea's mistake, and a free kick against Spain and followed it up with a header from a corner in the second game.
It's difficult to argue with Drogba right now or even see past CR7 to win the Golden Boot in Russia. Can anyone stop him?
