Those goals are Ibra's exclusive!
Even Messi or Ronaldo might be in difficulties as they do not have the martial arts skills he has. And you can see those in full there!

8 consecutive league titles. If he aint in the same class as them then why have Juve, Inter, Barca, AC and PSG all paid so much for him?

Completely different sort of player from Messi or Ronaldo. Falcao is a more apt comparison and Falcao is better IMO.

Than Ibrahimovic? Easily. Performs more consistently in poorer sides and is less reliant on acrobatic goals & skill moves to make jaws drop, though he can still pull off the acrobatics as proven by his goal against America de Cali (which is nominated for the Puskas award this year).

Then Ibra at Ajax times? Didn't he deliver solid performaces for years in a weak team even in the CL?!?!
Falcao has a great goal instinct, as Ibra, but the latter is a way more technical being so a better overall player.
After that they both have acrobatic skills

Falcao has been demolishing teams all season and until the other week, kept Atletico up at the top of the table with a Barcelona side widely recognised as one of the best the world has ever seen during their best ever start to a season. He scored 16 goals in 11 games, including a half hour hat trick against Chelsea. He may not be as gifted a dribbler as Ibrahimovic, but as a pure #9 he is the most consistent, most efficient, most predatory striker out there. He's outperforming Ibra (or at the very least on a par as both have 10 goals so far) at league level in a poorer team (with a significantly less decorated manager) against better opposition.

meh, pretty sure ibra has been producing goals and assists over a longer time then falcao. falcaos is a pure striker, while ibra is much more wellrounded. bad comparison

You may want to read the previous posts more carefully - we're talking about who is the best pure striker. If you want well rounded then Messi and Ronaldo enter the picture and both of them outclass Ibrahimovic.

Both world class, Ibra was off the radar for Milan last season and is doing it for PSG this year, Falcao more of an old fashioned goal machine

hence bad comparison with falcao since ibra is no pure striker.

Ibra for me. Will have to wait and see if Falcao can keep it up for the next 5 years and even then Ibra may still be around and banging them in. Guy is something else.

Love how (english) people don't recognize how good a player is until he destroys engurland. Pirlo was 33 before the media took notice of him and all because he dinked a pen Laughing out loud
