Throughout its long history, Serie A has been blessed with an extremely high number of elite strikers.
In terms of out-and-out goalscorers, a lot of the greats have played in Italy’s top flight at some point during their career, blessing fans with a series of superb strikes.
Although the 1990s was considered the peak of Serie A’s position as a superpower in football, with some of the world’s best players plying their trade in Italy at the time, the 21st century has also had its fair share of stars.
A lot of those star strikers have, of course, gone on to win Serie A’s Capocannoniere – finishing a season as top scorer – whether it be helping their side win the Scudetto or simply boosting their own individual profile.
Since the 1999/2000 season, 17 different players have finished as Serie A’s top scorer, with the Capocannoniere being shared on three occasions – in 2001/02, 2014/15 and 2017/18.
This season, Cristiano Ronaldo has his eyes firmly fixed on adding the accolade to his individual trophy cabinet but Ciro Immobile is also very much in the running.
So, how good is your knowledge and memory of Serie A football in the 21st century? Can you name all 17 players to win the Capocannoniere since the start of the 1999/2000 season?
And, more importantly, can you do it inside five minutes without cheating? Here’s a tip: thinking back to the glorious Gazzetta Football Italia days might help you when wracking your brains for the earlier years.
