World Football: Top 50 All-Time Goal Scorers

As a Featured Columnist, I was asked by Bleacher Report to compile a list with the 50 best goalscorers of all-time.

To be honest, I'm not exactly the biggest fan of top-50s of this nature, by two reasons: on the one hand, such a long list will inevitably mix legends with not-so-legendary players (to say the least). This is probably the only list where Pelé and Raul can appear together. On the other hand, such a long list makes it quite easy to forget/leave out some players.

That said, I tried to do my best, even though I'm aware that I might have forgotten some worthy players.

I hope you enjoy this list, and please don't refrain from suggesting which other players could/should be here.

Note: This is not a ranking, just a list. In this list, players are judged solely by their ability to score goals, hence why some great players with not-so-great scoring skills might have been left out. Only players with at least five seasons at an acceptable level were considered.
