South Korean footballer Son Heung-min has ranked sixth in ESPN's global top 10 list of the best strikers.
The U.S. sports network on Tuesday released their top 10 coaches and players in each position.
It says Son is a rare type of a forward whose "work rate and willingness to run at defenders to open space for teammates is unparalleled at the top level."
The Tottenham Hotspur star was seventh last year.
Lionel Messi was number one and Cristiano Ronaldo second.
