1. Pele was not a pure striker (AM, CF, Support striker)
2. Maradona was more of a midfielder ;)
3. Cruyff and Di Stefano where all overir the pitch; this is why I don't consider them strikers
4. Tostao, Charlton, and Baggio were not true strikers either.

Pure Strikers:

1. Ronaldo
2. Van Basten
3. Romario
4. Eusebio
5. Puskas
6. Muller
7. Seeler
8. Cubillas
9. Kempes
10. Batistuta

Very subjective. In no particular order, other than Pele first.

Pele and Romario. Puskas and Kocsis. Greaves. Van Basten. Eusebio. Muller. Law. Fontaine?

(Maradona, Best, Di Stefano, Charlton, Cruyff...they don't really fit the description 'striker').

Van Basten was top scorer in serie a twice
1989/1990 and 1991/1992

Ronaldo broke serie A rookie goal scoring record. He scored 25 goals in his debut season, but unfortunately outscored by Bierhoff, who scored 27 goals.

Van Basten was twice serie a's top scorer with milan .....most of the guys that were already mention here arent exactly ppl who i have seen but i know they are the best that have been ..but right now do u guys consider shearer and vieri as the great strikers? Shearer has been doing his club great deal with his consistency in goal scoring and if he is not retired yet im sure he would have start along owen or rooney for england. While Vieri has his goals to speak for himself ...a single season in LaLiga which saw 24 goals in 24 games and when he became Serie A's top scorer with Inter in 2002-03 it was 24goals in 23 games .....and he has a ratio of 1 goal for 2games with the NT. This 2 are among the best i ever seen.
