Messi 762 goal in 967 game – 762/967 = 0.78

-.- you guys are everywere


I would take Pele over anyone. When you start playing more games in a season by the time you are done with your career you will naturally score more than others from earlier times. Hence Pele scored just about a goal a match. American football has that same thing going

Josef Bican is just amazing playing 530 matches and then scoring 805 goals is really incredible and still in the second place as compared to C Ronaldo who has played 1120 matches leading him by some little goals


Joest Bican played in weak league
Critiano played in England,Spain,Italy league and he is the top scorer of UCL


Well… none of them could beat England (where football was invented) at home. Only Puskás could.

Hello, Lewandowski is at 616 Goals as of 29th of August 2022, now at 620 or 622. So its a lil bit wrong.

Thank You that sounds right


Olvidaron a Fernando Peyroteo, que marcó 558 goles en 354 apariciones con el Sporting de Portugal y la selección portuguesa y paró de jugar con tan sólo 30 anos.

Sunil Chhetri from India has scored more goals than many on the list. Add him also


Who is Sunil Chhetri ?

Dr. Awesome

Classic Chhetri! After Ronaldo & Messi, Chhetri placed third in Top Active International Goalscorer- KreedOn Banter


It’s crazy how overlooked Lewandowski is because Messi and Ronaldo are from the same era

ogundeyi Joseph olakunle aka oniduro 1

Change it to Men, because there are multiple woman soccer player that have scored well above Cristano Ronaldo. For starters Christine Sinclair has scored 190 goals compared to Ronaldo’s 118. So if you could recognize women in this list that’s would be inclusive and accurate or just change it to men’s highest international scorer in football.


Actually it’s Christine Sinclair 190 goals.
