List of players with the most goals in an association football game

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of players with the most goals in an association football game. The list only includes players who have scored the most multiple goals in first class or fully professional matches for country or club.

The current world record for an international is held by Archie Thompson who scored 13 goals against American Samoa in Australia's 31–0 victory during the 2002 FIFA World Cup qualification. In the same match David Zdrilic scored eight goals.[1]

In the most prolific European football leagues, the Premier League and the Football League First Division before it, La Liga, Serie A and the Bundesliga, the top scorers per game have much lower tallies, seven in England and Spain and six in Italy and Germany. The last player in these leagues to score seven goals in a match was László Kubala in 1952 for FC Barcelona.

List[edit]

The players are listed by number of goals scored in an individual game. Players on equal goals are listed in chronological order with the earlier ones on top.
