Ferenc Puskas, often known as 'The Galloping Major,' was a major member of two of football's best teams: Hungary's 'Magnificent Magyars' and Real Madrid's European Cup-winning side in 1960.

He was tiny and muscular, and his right foot wasn't very strong; but, his left was a cannon, and it was with it that he scored the majority of his 746 goals in just 754 games.

4. Cristiano Ronaldo

Surprisingly, despite the passage of time, he has shown little symptoms of slowing down and continues to hit with Juventus at an astonishing rate: 763 goals to date.

Jose Bican is the most prolific scorer in football history, but few people are familiar with his name. He was a star in Austria throughout the 1930s and was a member of the squad that reached the World Cup semifinals in 1934, but he continued to play until 1955 when he retired at the age of 42.

Bican, a talented striker with both feet and a sprinter's speed, had scored 805 goals by that point.
