Welcome to World Class: The 5 best trendsetters of 2020
Over the past few weeks, we’ve treated each other by indulging in the talents of some of the best right forwards on the planet.
Using our unique scoring system, we’ve narrowed them down from the top ten to the bottom five, and now the time has come to announce the final final ranking of the best right forwards on the planet.
We have judged the following players to be the best of the best, players who can truly claim to be “world class” strikers. But enough of all the gossip – it’s time to get down to business.
Who is our number one in the world?
Hakim Ziyech’s qualities have never been questioned, having produced sensational figures during his time with Ajax in Eredivisie and against
The European elite in the Champions League.
If you had to pick a player in the world to unlock a defense with one swipe of their left boot, Ziyech wouldn’t be too far off the top of your list. The Moroccan has really turned crossbreeding into an art form, and he’s already starting to settle in the Premier League with Chelsea.
Some would argue that crossbreeding is not as important in modern football as it used to be – Ziyech proves the opposite.

The majority of the players we have been fortunate enough to recognize in our Welcome to World Class series are at the peak of their respective careers. Of course they are – to think that a player could be considered a truly world-class footballer years before his prime is ludicrous, right? Maybe not.
Jadon Sancho is beyond the stage of being brilliant considering his age, he’s just brilliant, late.
A mix of cunning, creativity and sheer finishing ability, the 20-year-old is well on his way to reaching the top of the soccer world and it’s honestly scary to think of how good he could be once that it will have reached its peak.

It could be a bit It’s a bit of a stretch to call Serge Gnabry’s career a “footballing fairy tale”, but be honest, if you were to write such a book your protagonist would likely be told he wasn’t good enough to play. for West Brom and continue to become a European champion.
The German is currently a vital part of the continent’s best team and he has the medal to prove it.

In a strange way, Mohamed Salah doesn’t quite match the rest of his Liverpool team-mates. While Jurgen Klopp’s side are praised for their selflessness and mutual work, the Egyptian is just a cold-blooded finisher who lives to score goals – and that’s what makes him so brilliant.
Being the best is what drives Salah, and his ruthless nature has propelled him to a level few others in world football can claim to have achieved.
The 28-year-old’s 32 goals in 2017/18 are a record for a 38-game Premier League season, and the numbers he has continued to produce since his incredible first campaign with Liverpool make him truly world-class.

It is absolutely impossible not to consider this man as the best striker in the world.
Even at the age of 33, Lionel Messi is still producing the merchandise at one of the best clubs in the world. Not only is he always brilliant, but he’s there when his team needs him most in the clutch moments, and that’s what separates the good from the bright.
The Argentine recently surpassed Pelé’s record for goals scored for a single club, and it’s hard to imagine that a single individual has ever had such a huge impact on one of the world’s greatest teams for so long. than him.
Messi is world class, he’s been doing it for years and he’s our number one forward.
