TOP 10 top scorers in the Club World Cup

It’s already the grand final of the Club World Cup! This Thursday February 11 at 7 p.m., Bayern Munich challenges the Tigers, to offer themselves a new trophy. The Bavarian club should be particularly wary of André-Pierre Gignac. For his first participation in this competition, he made a sensational entry into the top 10 scorers in the history of the Club World Cup.

Many players have scored three goals in this competition. We still chose to keep Karim Benzema in tenth place in this ranking. It must be said that the Real Madrid striker has won the Club World Cup four times.

Playing nearly eight games in the competition, he scored three goals and delivered two assists.

The other players with three goals in the competition:

It is already very strong. Became a legend with the Tigers, André-Pierre Gignac continues to impress with the Mexican club. Already a great architect of the CONCACAF Champions League coronation, the French striker has not given up on his first participation in the Club World Cup.

Author of a decisive double against Ulsan Hyundai and the winning goal against Palmeiras, APG has already made a sensational entry in this ranking. He’s also three goals away, but it’s not over yet! The Tigers now face Bayern Munich in the final, where the former OM player will try to find, once again, the loophole.

You could say he’s a regular at the Club World Cup. Mohamed Aboutreika has competed in this competition almost five times. Playing more than 270 games with El Ahly, the attacking midfielder has had enough to score many goals throughout his career.

Egyptian international 105 times, he notably scored 38 goals with his national team. For the Club World Cup, between his first participation in 2005 until his last in 2013, he found the fault almost four times in eleven meetings.

In recent years, we are used to seeing Tsukasa Shiotani in the Club World Cup. With Sanfrecce Hiroshima and then with Al-Ain FC, the defender had time to play three editions. Yet playing much lower than most players in this ranking, he managed to settle in the top 10 of the best scorers in the competition.

In nearly nine games in the Club World Cup, the 32-year-old has offered himself four goals. A very good performance which allows him to make a place for himself in this top 10.

He played for many clubs during his career, but it was with the Pohang Steelers that Denilson spent the most time. The 44-year-old Brazilian striker was one of the great architects of the South Korean team’s third place in the competition, in 2009-2010.

Author of four goals in three matches, he was very prolific for his only participation in the Club World Cup.

In this top 5, we find a certain César Delgado. The former CF Monterrey winger was particularly convincing in the Club World Cup. In three appearances with the Mexican club, he had enough to play six games in the competition.

Although he was never able to make it past the semi-finals, he was often prolific. In addition to his five goals, César Delgado also offered two assists. Now retired, the former OL player has something to smile about when remembering his great career.

How not to find Lionel Messi in this ranking? The six-time Ballon d’Or still won the Club World Cup three times with FC Barcelona. Always very decisive in all competitions, it has not changed its impact in this planetary event.

Despite only five matches played in this competition, the flea managed to score nearly five goals. We certainly expected no less from a player who is one of the sport’s greatest legends.

He has only played one Club World Cup in his career. However, Luis Suarez did not need more to settle on the podium of this classification. As we know, the Uruguayan striker has always known how to be one of the most prolific scorers on the planet. And he demonstrated it during this 2015-2016 edition.

In just two matches, Luis Suarez has offered himself five goals in the Club World Cup. He first scored a hat-trick against Guangzhou Evergrande (3-0) then a double in the final against River Plate (3-0). One of the great architects of FC Barcelona’s success that season!

Put in the closet at Real Madrid last season, Gareth Bale remains one of the great architects of recent Madrid success. Already the author of several decisive goals in the Champions League, the Welsh winger has also always been at the rendezvous at the Club World Cup.

Despite two games less than Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale has offered himself six goals in six games in this competition. A very good record that allows him to settle alone in second place in this ranking.

With his four club World Cup victories, Cristiano Ronaldo has had time to play in this competition. In high-stake matches, the five-time Ballon d’Or always knows how to respond. It is therefore not surprising to find him at the top of this ranking.

During his stints at Manchester United and Real Madrid, the Portuguese striker had time to register seven goals in this competition. A total that allows him to be at the top of this ranking.
