Chinese term or phrase: 球队的前锋线射手
I would assume this is what the British would call a "striker on a football team," and Americans would dub "a forward on a soccer team". Comments?

Striker on a soccer team
Explanation:

I myself would call it a "striker" too coming from Australia, plus I think it is more descriptive of what the Chinese actually refers to.
