Vote for the greatest striker since 2000 - Ronaldo wins vote
4 Jun


It's official. Cristiano Ronaldo is the best European striker of the 21st century so far - well, according to you anyway.

BBC Sport journalists shortlisted 32 players, who faced off in a day-long knockout competition until you picked the ultimate winner.

To be included on the shortlist, players must have scored at least 20 goals in three seasons and their international pedigree and success has also been taken into account.

The ties were drawn from a hat and throughout Thursday 4 June, BBC Sport asked people to vote for their winners in this page while running a live text commentary to share the results from each round and people's memories of the strikers, using #besteurostriker.

The final was between Thierry Henry and Cristiano Ronaldo, and it was the Portuguese who took the title.

Rubbish list.

Cristiano Ronaldo isn't a striker. I'm a ronaldo fan. Because he scores a lot of goals doesnt make him a striker... He's not a pure 9

My top 5 European strikers of 21st (based on clinicality and striker awards)

Ruud Van Nistelrooy
Thierry Henry
Gonzalez Raul
Andriy Shevchenko
Robert Lewandowski

Bro if we're talking about pure CF's then I think Henry should be first. Ruud van Nistelrooy was inconsistent, overly flamboyant and had a penchant for simulation.

Not a good striker
