Where did you get this list?

I'm quite sure you're missing players like Litmanen, Pizarro, Scholes, Giggs, Anelka and Elber?

Yep. Example Litamen has scored 23 goals. There is missing many other too.

Don't know about Litamen but the list was missing some answers. I think the source is probably correct now:

Was a little surprised that Kane isn't on the list yet. I know last year he'd become the fastest player to 20 goals in the Champions League (in just 24 matches). Guess he's still at 20.

In keeping with my intent to try every quiz, I gave this one a shot and typed the only names I could think of - Zidane, Beckham, and Pele. Nada, zip, nothing. (Please forgive my ignorance.)

Nothing wrong with that. As an Irishman, I am often surprised by my ignorance of North American sport. But I have guessed a few team names on jetpunk quizzes by typing in random colours/colors, large felines, birds of prey and extreme weather conditions.

How does France produce so many great strikers? About four is the average for proper footballing nations (one if they’re lucky for everyone else) but there are seven froggies on this list…
