Opinion: The 4 most underrated strikers for the past two decades.

Underrating is a common thing in every career in life. There are some individuals who are recognised for their impact in a career while some aren't really recognised even after their impact in that field of life. The latter category of people fall under those who are underrated.

Football isn't an exception to this and for the past 20 years, we've come across numerous excellent players (strikers to be precise). Few have been praised, many have been underrated.

So, in no particular order, here are the 4 most underrated strikers in our current generation of football:

1. Karim Benzema.

Karim Mostafa Benzema is a striker for the French professional team and Spanish club, Real Madrid. Born on 19 December, 1987, Benzema has scored 266 goals for Real Madrid and 27 goals for the French National team.

He started getting little recognition when his former teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo, left for Juventus.


2. Ciro Immobile.

Immobile is a striker who plays for the Italian National team and the Italian club, Lazio. Immobile was born on 20 February, 1990. He has scored 144 goals for his current club, Lazio and has scored 10 goals for the Italian National team.


3. Olivier Giroud.

Olivier Jonathan Giroud who was born on 30 September, 1986, is a forward for premier league club, Chelsea and for the French National team. Transferred to his current club in 2018, Giroud has scored 39 goals for Chelsea and 44 goals for France.


4. Mario Mandzukic.

Mario Mandzukic who was born on 21 May, 1986, is a Croatian professional footballer who plays as a forward for Serie A club, AC Milan. Although, he is easily the least recognised based on what we've seen, he still comes up with impressive stats. Having played only 5 matches in his current club, he has no goal for the club. He's scored 33 goals for the Croatian National team.

Is there any other striker missing on this list?
