Writer Mark Ogden set out to produce the perfect attacking player, focusing on key areas such as mind, movement, heading, right foot, left foot, pace and strength.
The brain of six-time Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi was the first attribute selected and understandably so. With his unrivalled vision and awareness, the Argentine genius is in a league of his own and it feels as though his level of thinking on a football pitch is above everyone else's.
To many's surprise, however, it's the left foot of Liverpool's Mo Salah that gets the nod ahead of Messi and Gareth Bale. The feeling was that Salah is able to best combine power and precision on his trademark strikes, ultimately giving him the edge.
Compared to David Beckham for his outrageous deliveries into the box, Kevin De Bruyne claimed the right foot trophy, while Cristiano Ronaldo was surely the only logical choice for heading given his ridiculous aerial prowess.
The freakish strength of Erling Haaland and clever movement of Robert Lewandowski would create a truly unstoppable Bundesliga striker and then you have the lighting quick pace that Kylian Mbappe brings to the table, basically ending any chance of any defender being able to cope.
Fans will have their own way of assembling a complete attacking footballer but it's hard to have too many issues with the strong selections here.
