Harry Kane, England's captain and a goal-scoring machine himself, recently took on a fun challenge which was to create the ultimate striker by picking the best players for various skills. This exercise emphasized the specific qualities of having a gun forward. 

Kane selected Edinson Cavani for his movement. The Uruguayan is known for his intelligent runs off the ball and his knack for being in the right place at the right time. Cavani's movement creates scoring opportunities not just for himself, but also for his teammates. Unsurprisingly, Cristiano Ronaldo was Kane's pick for pace. Ronaldo's blistering speed has been a hallmark of his career, allowing him to burst past defenders and create chances in a flash.

Here is the video:

Peter Crouch, the towering former English striker, was Kane's choice for aerial prowess. Crouch's height dominance in the box was legendary, making him a constant threat. His ability to win headers creates goals and disrupts the opponent's defence. In terms of finishing, Kane remained humble yet confident, selecting himself for the last touch. His clinical finishing ability, honed through years of practice and a natural eye for goal, makes him one of the deadliest strikers in the world.

Didier Drogba, the former striker from Ivory, was Kane's pick for strength. Drogba's ability to hold off defenders and shield the ball is unmatched. Kylian Mbappe, the French prodigy, received Kane's nod for dribbling skills. Mbappe's pace is complemented by his exceptional dribbling ability. 

Wayne Rooney, the former Manchester United and England legend, was Kane's choice for link-up play. Rooney's vision, passing ability, and understanding of the game made him a complete forward. Finally, Kane chose Jude Bellingham, the young English midfielder, for his work rate. While not a typical striker attribute, a tireless work ethic is essential for modern forwards. Bellingham's relentless pressing, ability to cover ground, and high energy levels would make him a valuable asset in Kane's ultimate striker.

This combination of skills paints a picture of a near-unstoppable forward. Kane's choices highlight the importance of balance and versatility in a modern striker. The days of a one-dimensional forward are fading. Today's top strikers need to be well-rounded, and capable of scoring, creating, and contributing to the overall attacking play.
