I got Pele and Messi... then got Muller only because I was guessing common surnames. I missed Maradona by one "a", and missed Donovan because scanning the list of countries I didn't see the USA was on the list. Never heard of all but 4 of these guys.

You ought to learn about the history of the game you think you know so much about then... The game has been called soccer since the 19th century, and was just as common a word in Britain for the game as the name "football" for most of the 20th century. Many of the game's top players had the word "soccer" in the title of their autobiographies (e.g. George Best). Watch some old Pathe news videos of matches - the word "soccer" is used a lot.

Marek Hamsik was equalled by Dries Mertens, so maybe accept both?

Level 47
Jun 19, 2020
Dries Mertens (122) has now surpassed Marek Hamsik (121) for Napoli, so this should probably be updated i guess

true, mertens is now on 125

Level 69
Sep 15, 2020
That one does stick out like a sore thumb. The rest all ‘big’ European clubs and or very famous players. Whilst Napoli are a decent side and Mertens is a great player, both are probably a level below everyone else on the list.

Though having looked at some other big clubs, AC Milan and Ajax etc, it looks like their too scorers are less well known.

Napoli used to be on that quiz for the very easy Diego guess.

Now it's a little bit more interesting for the sake of the quiz, but Diego pretty much flooded the newsreel when Dries got the record over Hamšík, as he adores him, so a lot of soccer fans have heard about this.

It might not me as important for most people, but I'd really love it, if you'd write (men) behind the other teams but Brazil. We should either put the women out of this quiz as a whole or call it "men soccer" and "women soccer".

In other sports like the UFC f.e. o in the alpin wintersport like biathlon, it's common to call the mens sport what it is and the womens sport what it is.

Obviously the men sport will probably always be quicker and faster than the women sport, but as an act of equality I believe if you call one by the gender you'd should call both by the gender.

In football/soccer you can always assume the men's team is being referred to if it is unspecified
