Most footballers aspire to be strikers as children. Scoring goals is the most exciting aspect of the game, and you can’t blame them for thinking that way because the game favors offensive play in the end. Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, two of the finest players of the contemporary era, are both fantastic goal scorers.
