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


Chetrri never played in Europe


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


1:Hassan Abdikariim Axmed : 500


Plz help meh

ogundeyi Joseph olakunle aka oniduro 1

I am interested on it


Okay he is really godly good

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.


That is just international team goals.
This list includes club goals as well.
Sinclair is not in the top 50 in this list.


Actually it’s Christine Sinclair 190 goals.


That is national goals only.
She does not have enough total goals to make it on this list.






Bro were is sunil chhetri


Some days ago you wrote that Messi had scored 799 goals. Now you change it to 798 again. Why?


cristiano ronaldo eis the most player ever


Why is messi’s name highlited


Where is Abe Lenstra from the Netherlands?


Lewandowski has passed more than 600 goals. Please give him credit. Wikipedia not a reliable source. Transfermarkt is a 100% safe source for active players


Where is Sunil chhetri?? He is 2nd highest active goal scorer after Ronaldo. You should collect information before posting something bro …


Buscan is in a weak league. Messi played in la ligament and liege a little bit and Ronaldo has played in premier league, la lugs, serie A and Portuguese league for a bit. Both have played in ucl as well and buscan has bad stats for a bad team just in an easy league


Did Ronaldo’s goals at saudi arabia league count?
