We look at the social influence of forwards
This is the fourth and final part of our series looking at players social influence by their position on the pitch. You can find the first part on World Cup Goalkeepers here
, the second part on World Cup Defenders here
, and our look at World Cup Midfielders here
in our third part.
Beyond the Ballon D’or-starring triumvirate that is Ronaldo, Neymar and Messi, the dominance of Argentina
is clear to see in this table, with half their attacking options making the grade. Lionel Messi
and Sergio Aguero
are of course household names, but Paulo Dybala
was more of a surprise, both because of his age and the fact that he plays in the Italian league. Clearly his Instagram account proves to be a wise investment, with almost 17m followers of his exploits.
strikers are noticeable by their absence once again, although Harry Kane
would have appeared at number 21 if we had shown a list of that length.
