List of top international association football goal scorers by country

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
  (Redirected from Top international goal scorers)
Jump to: navigation, search

This page lists the top all-time male goal scorer for each national football team where the top scorer has a minimum 20 goals in official international matches for his country. Players who are currently active at international level are indicated in bold type.

This list is not an all-time top international goal scorers list, as some country's second-top scorer could have scored more than another country's top scorer. It lists only the top scorer for each country.

This list is for Men's association football only.

List of players[edit]

As of 3 April 2017

  • Statistics for the top scorers of Malaysia (Mokhtar Dahari – 125 goals, 167 caps),[123] Morocco (Ahmed Faras – 42 goals),[124] and Qatar (Mansoor Muftah – 53 goals),[125] have not been verified and therefore are not included in the list.
