Scoring goals is the most cherished aspect of football, captivating not just fans but also spectators. At the heart of goal-scoring in football lies technical proficiency. As a game focused on space, football demands that players constantly exploit gaps in the opposition's defence to score.

To score goals consistently, players need both technical skill and mental toughness. It requires precise execution with the ball at their feet.

During the Indian Super League (ISL) 2023-24 season, several attackers showcased clinical finishing to secure valuable points for their teams. But which players demonstrated the best accuracy?
