Best real life front 3?

Following the success of the discussion around the best midfield 3 (https://fifaforums.easports.com/en/discussion/541893/best-real-life-midfield-3/p1), it was suggested I start another thread on defenders and forwards. This is the forwards one!

If you could pick any forwards, past or present, to form a front 3, who would they be?

Conditions:
1) this is based on real life performances, not how good they are in Fifa
2) they need to be in Fifa 20
3) they need to compliment each other, i.e. they can't all be target men, or all wingers
4) you can have them in your preferred formation, i.e. you can have a LW, ST, RW combination, or a LST, RST, CAM, as examples.

Mine: Ronaldinho, Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi (works either as LW, ST, RW, or LST, RST, CAM)

Who would you go for?

    If we're talking about how they performed irl for me it was probably be between neymar, suarez, messi or david villa, messi, pedro. Could argue the neymar/suarez/messi duo was better because they didn't have prime xavi/iniesta.

    You can mix and match. They don't have to have played together in real life.

    It's hard to argue with your choices for defence and midfield @Team Sam although I'd probably go with Iniesta over Kaka and Rijkaard over Vieira (Scott Brown just misses out by a whisker :wink:.)

    With your attack, I agree with Ronaldinho and Messi, but I'd definitely drop Ronaldo for Larsson!

    If we're talking at their absolute peak, Ronaldinho - R9 - Messi.

    I'd obviously take CR7 over Ronaldinho career wise, considering longevity and consistency, but Ronaldinho's peak was just a tad higher than anyone probably ever imo.

    Pele counted goals that he scored in his back garden and played in an era with no offside rule.... most overrated player to ever exist lol
