Igor Angulo of FC Goa takes the 2nd place in this list. The spaniard had a wonderful season with FC Goa as he finished as the joint top goal scorer of the ISL alongside Roy Krishna by scoring 14 goals. The Spanish striker played 21 out of 22 games for FC Goa under Juan Ferrando, he had 52 total shots in which he scored 14 of them with a conversion rate of 27%. His clinical finishing ability definitely played a very crucial role in taking FC Goa to the top 4 of the ISL. It was a memorable debut season in India for Igor Angulo as he bagged the prestigious Golden Boot award.

Despite scoring the same number of goals as Roy Krishna, his goals per game ratio helped him win the golden boot which was 0.67 compared to that of Roy Krishna which was 0.61. Angulo played alongside Ortiz in a 4-4-2 formation and as a sole striker in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Whichever formation he plays in, Igor Angulo guarantees positive impact.

1.Roy Krishna

Finishing at the No.1 spot in the best foreign strikers list this season is none other than Roy Krishna of ATK Mohun Bagan who scored 14 goals, giving 8 assists. His goals per game ratio made him miss out on the golden boot this season. Despite finishing 2nd in the golden boot race, Krishna was directly involved in 22 goals this season. Roy has played all the 23 games for ATK Mohun Bagan this season and was very clinical in the attack alongside his partner in crime David Williams.

The Fiji international has finished this season with incredible stats. He has played 2062 minutes in 23 games and scored 14 goals, gave 8 assists, had 65 shots, 653 touches and made 491 passes. The Fijian played an important and crucial role in taking ATKMB to the finals of ISL and in securing the AFC Cup spot for its next edition. Scoring 14 goals in Habas’s team with defensive tactics is not easy but Roy Krishna has made it possible.
