Top 10 Highest Goal Scorers in the World 2022
Highest Goal Scorers in the World 2022 : Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi may be nearing the twilight of their illustrious careers, but for the time being, they are still netting goals at an alarming rate.
During the previous season, Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo extended his incredible run, scoring a spectacular hat-trick in a 3-1 victory over Cagliari in March. It increased the 36-year-career old’s tally to 770 goals, three more than Pele’s record of 767 goals in OFFICIAL matches throughout his illustrious career.
Pele congratulated Ronaldo on his achievement, but he insists that his actual number is in excess of 1,200. Such assertions have been heavily criticized. Despite the fact that the magnificent Ronaldo has risen up the all-time scoring records in recent years, he and his great opponent Messi continue to trail behind Austrian-Czech legend Josef Bican.
Whatever the case, one thing is certain: the superstar combo who are still on the field today are among the best to ever do so.
They still have a few years left in them before they can retire, and they both intend to work hard to move up the rankings even further. Messi passed Germany legend Gerd Muller in April to climb up to sixth place on the all-time list, while Ronaldo has moved up to second place after surpassing Romario’s goals.
Both will need to maintain their high levels of productivity for some time to catch up with Bican. These are the Top 10 Highest Goal Scorers in the World 2022.
