The most interesting name on the list is Brazilian goalkeeper Rogerio Ceni.
He started taking set-pieces for Sau Paulo in 1997 and continued to do so until his retirement in 2015.
He played over 1000 games in his 25 year career and his record will likely never be matched.
Current Netherlands manager Ronald Koeman features in defence, with over 200 goals.
One prolific season came in the 1987/88 season when he scored 26 goals for PSV from centre-back.
It comes as no shock that Pele and Ronaldo are at the top of the goalscoring charts considering their reputations.
Pele's goalscoring record has become an urban legend among football fans but his legendary status cannot be questioned.
Ronaldo, meanwhile, is still active and begun 2020 in scintillating form.
The Portuguese international had a poor 2019 and came third in the Ballon d'Or rankings behind Lionel Messi and Virgil van Dijk.
But he rebounded in 2020 and saw his side locked in an intense title challenge with Lazio before coronavirus halted the football season.
Juventus are currently one point ahead of Lazio in Serie A.
