Takes the most shots per game than any other player from the top 5 leagues in Europe. Not sure why people think him being a winger hinders him. The whole team plays around him and he has little defensive duties so he stays up field the whole time. No CR7 doesn't score 30 goals as striker in the EPL. You can't be a top 10 striker if you don't even play striker.
