Soccerlens’ Top Five Strikers Of The Last 20 Years

As the footballing sphere bids farewell to one of it's greatest ever patrons, legendary Brazilian forward Ronaldo, we at Soccerlens thought it high time to compile a concise list of our top five 'strikers in world football' - with the only stipulation being that any nominee must have played 'up top' and have had been in their prime at some point during the last two decades.

Ten Overhead Kicks That Put Rooney’s Derby Shinner To Shame

After Wayne Rooney reminded us all that he used to be a fairly decent professional footballer with his derby day belter against Manchester City last Saturday, the received (Sky Sports-infused) wisdom seems to be that the decidedly off-colour striker's effort was, without need for second thought, the greatest overhead kick ever scored by anyone, anywhere, ever.

Fabio Capello Saddles Jack Wilshere With The ‘F’ Bomb

The nation mourned when Emile Heskey retired from international football last year, and rightly so -for England knew that what stretched out before them was what adulterous husbands tend to refer to as a 'transitional period' when the kids finally ask why Mummy hasn't been home in nearly three weeks. England needed, and still need, a new hero. Step forward, 19-year-old Jack Wilshere.
