According to this, there are some of the best players who have topped the list as greatest strikers in the world including Kylian Mbappe, Robert Lewandowski, Benzema and many more. Let’s take a look at these top best strikers in FIFA.
Top 10 best Strikers in FIFA
1. Robert Lewandowski
It may not come as a surprise for you to see Robert Lewandowski’ name in the list of top ten best Strikers in FIFA this time as he has already been listed as one of the strongest and highest rated players on FIFA 23 with an overall rating of 91. Despite having come in his 30s, Lewandowski has succeeded in maintaining his strength and ability to strike.
Robert Lewandowski is a Polish professional football player who plays as a striker for the La Liga club Barcelona which is regarded as one of the most expensive and popular clubs on the planet. Before joining Barcelona in early 2022, Lewandowski used to play for Bundesliga club Bayern Munich where he had been playing since 2014. But no matter which club he plays for, he always gives a prolific season.
2. Kylian Mbappe
If you are a consistent viewer of football and you like to dig up the information about the well known footballers, you must know that this is not the first list of FIFA 23 that has Kylian Mbappe. Kylian has also been titled as the fastest player in FIFA as well as one of the strongest and highest rated players with an overall rating of 91. Mbappe continues to give jaw-dropping performances and score frequently for Paris Saint-Germain providing he is not a wrong fit for the list.
Considering his outstanding playing skills and his pace of scoring goals, he has been declared as one of the best striker in the world. When he can achieve this level of attention grabbing success at the age of 23 only, it is difficult to imagine where he will be in the next few years.
3. Karim Benzema
Here comes the Real Madrid star, Karim Benzema who is also regarded as tallisman forward of the team. Two up from the rating of FIFA 22 of 89, he has got a rating of 91 in the FIFA 23 for his incompatible eye catching football skills. It shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone who knows what influence the French star had after scoring victory at the Champions league with Los Blancos for the 14th time.
Benzema has made such a hit career for himself given his best 44 goals in the all competitions that his rating of 91 can not be speculated or debated upon.
4. Lionel Messi
The king of kings in the football World, the Argentine, the legend – Lionel Messi. Messi has become the name that is on every child’s tongue who doesn’t even know football. He is the legend of football who has been ruling since the last two decades followed by Cristiano Ronaldo. Though the diminutive Argentine’s rating has fallen two points down from 93 to 91, he remains one of the highest rated and best players in FIFA 23.
Well, if you are considering his dropped rating, then you will also have to consider his low key season following his move to Paris Saint-Germain as the explanation for it. Even, he should be praised for maintaining his strength and style in his 30s. No matter what the ratings suggest, he is a spark in PSG and will always remain one.
5. Cristiano Ronaldo
As I mentioned above, Messi is the legend of his generation since the last decades followed by the Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo. Cristiano ranks second after Messi as the greatest footballer in the world and with an overall rating of 90, he has been declared as one of the best strikers by FIFA 23. He can not be speculated as he earned it with 24 best goals in all competitions last season.
The Manchester United player has found himself repeatedly on the bench as the new manager, Erik ten Hag has shown up. Seems like the Dutchman made a bold move.
6. Mohamed Salah
Mohamed Salah is one of the best and most popular South African footballers in the world. He has been getting better day by day on the pitch. Considering his hard work and playing techniques, he is given an overall rating of 90 marking a jump from 89 in last year’s game to 90.
Salah is a Egyptian professional footballer whose full name is Mohamed Salah Hamed Mahrous Ghaly. He plays as a forward for the Premier league club Liverpool and serves as captain for the Egyptian National team. There’s no doubt that he is chosen as one of the best players in FIFA 23 as he has played for clubs like Chelsea and Basel in past and now is getting paid 1.82 crores GBP by Liverpool.
7. Neymar Jr.
Neymar Jr is a Brazilian professional footballer who carries on the legacy of Brazilians being the best players in the world. Even though his ratings have dropped from 91 last year to 89 this year, he remains one of the best players in FIFA with undeniable talent. Yet, he has a few injuries hit during the games as an explanation to this decline.
Just like I said, Brazilians are just incapable of letting it go. They always remain at the top with Brazil being five times winner of the FIFA World Cup. Providing Neymar is still capable of brilliance which just didn’t get him in this list but also in the list of most favourite ones because of his five-star skill ratings.
8. Harry Kane
Harry Kane, the traditional striker. You should know that he is one of the most traditional strikers existing today who strike this list. His methods and playing techniques are just unique which make him the most reliable player for any team. The 29-years-old English striker is still in tune to give hits for Premier league club Tottenham Hotspur.
He might not have the same speed as his peers but he has power and accuracy which is needed to defend against in FIFA 23. His regularity with scoring goals for Tottenham is just mind blowing and it also contributes to his overall rating of 89.
9. Son Heung-min
With an overall rating of 89 and being the teammate of Kane, the South Korean footballer plays for Tottenham Hotspur. He is amongst the most popular and greatest strikers in the World. His season at Spurs marked his significance as he scored a total of 24 goals in all competitions.
The 30 years old Son deserves all of it because of his achievements with previous clubs including Premier League Golden Boot, FIFA Puskas Award, Premier League Player of the Month, and Best Footballer in Asia. His team number at Tottenham is 7 and he has also played for teams like Hamburger SV and Bayer Leverkusen.
10. Erling Haaland
Last but not the least, Erling is the tenth top striker in the world on FIFA 23 with an overall rating of 88. Lately, he joined Manchester City which rarely had any positive impact on his ratings as his last year’s rating is unchanged. Considering this move a turning point in his life, it feels like it’s a very low rating for him.
But he and his incompatible legacy remains untarnished as he reached 10 premier league goals after just six games. He has also won plenty of hat-tricks.back to back which sometimes make us feel like a grown up man is playing a children’s game. However, if he continues to keep scoring at such a rate, he will soon become the greatest and top footballer in the world leaving Messi and Cristiano behind.
