The Highest Scoring Players In Every Position Have Been Named

A list of the highest scoring footballers in every position has been revealed following Cristiano Ronaldo's record-equalling goal.

It means he'll have a change to break the record when Juve return to action on Wednesday against Genoa in the Coppa Italia.

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 Barcelona 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.

While Ronaldo inched ahead of Pele a few weeks ago, the Brazilian legend's social media team seemed to disagree.

The three-time World Cup winner's bio suggests that he has scored 1,283 goals, which is a dramatic increase on the 757 goal haul linked to his name.

"I was accused by the press of having changed my Instagram bio to overshadow these big stars that are breaking my records," Pele wrote, roughly translated.

"The bio text has always been the same since I joined the platform. None of this should distract us from your incredible achievements."

Who do you think will go down as football's greatest ever goalscorer?

Sound off in the comments.
