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.

Although many dispute that Pele scored as many goals as he says, his impact on the sport cannot be denied.

Ronaldo, meanwhile, is still active and has 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.

Since the turn of the year, he's netted eight goals in five games for Juventus as their Serie A title race with Inter Milan hots up.

Juve boss Maurizio Sarri recently joked that he shouldn't receive praise for the 34-year-old's performances, but his mother should for 'creating such a specimen'.

Who do you think will go down as one of the world's best goalscorers.
