Best Forward From CONCACAF Region?

Well who do you think it is? It can no longer be Dwight Yorke since his best days are behind him. My thoughts go to Ricardo Fuller. He can create chances for himself and also knows when to pass it off for someone else to score. I've seen him make seasoned international defenders look foolish as he dribbles around them. I heard once during a game he dribbled the ball for 54 seconds straight! Of course Preston are only division 1 but each game he plays there are more and more scouts watching him. It won't be long before he is playing top flight football somewhere. I think the only thing against him is not scoring for his national team(actually I think he has scored 1 goal). He needs to get more of a chance with Jamaica but I believe he will soon be thought of as a world class player.

I guess it is still a bit of wait and see with Fuller, but who do you think the best Forward is from CONCACAF?

I guess no one's heard the fine form that José Cardozo of Mexican team Toluca has had in the last few months.

A MIND BOGGLING 29 GOALS IN 19 GAMES!!!!!!

Who knows if he'll be able to keep his form since it's only half ways through the season.

However the guy's Paraguayan and probably doesn't count. However 1.5 goals/game in a good league like Mexico is impressive indeed.

I go for Mauricino Prince Cadet of St Lucian team VSADC. Just seen him twice playing for this team in the CFU Club Championships in Kingston, Jamaica. They lost 0-5 to Arnett Gardens of Jamaica and 1-3 to Voilette Athletic Club from Haiti (with Carlos Alberto Torres, World Champion of 1970, as their coach). Arnett Gardens meet the Haitians for the final on Sunday.
