Who are the best strikers in the world at latching onto long balls and finishing them? Now or in the past?

Adriano, Drogba, van Nistelrooj currently. Shearer is one of the best ever.

What do they have in common? They can dominate physically.

Batigol should be included in the list, absolutely.
RVN? I don't think so.

Adriano, well against Juve, Stankovic provided 4 or 5 good long passes for him and he failed to make anything out of any of them.

1 bad match,,,,give the guy a break. He has been superb and he is one of the best strikers, at receiving a long ball today.

Oh, so then Recoba has never scored from far away? Am I right?

Yeah....Vieri and Adriano are usually the ones who are just taking off down the field after a ball and who finish it cliniically..martins as well

Recoba on the other hand scores many goals, however he just really makes nothing out of nothing..like he'll get the ball from far away, maybe 40 yds, and he'll just walk around and suddently he'll chip a pass or just launch one and score

thats how he is

thats not long ball

Yeah when Vieri is in form he's one of the best, his ball control is nothing short of spectacular.

Adriano is pretty average in this aspect to tell you the truth, same with Martins. Maybe it's just inexperience... :blind: Good thing both do other things so well though.
