His name was last to me as well, from the moment he decided not to celebrate. Had a couple of near death experiences as a 14 year old that dayI remember a Scotsman scoring a back-heeled goal in the penultimate league match of the 1973/74 season.
Can't remember his name, though.
As was Dixie Dean. He scored 349 in 399 games for Everton alone in 12 years, including 60 goals in one season, still a record.Interesting, never realised that many players had scored 200+ goals.
Jimmy Greaves' record of 357 in 516 (English First Division) is truly astonishing.
There are so many minnows in international football particularly in Europe these days that goal tallies since circa mid 90s should have an asterisk next to them.Ronaldo 101 in 165 matches for Portugal is incredible too given how average Portugal are. 450 in 499 league games too.
