10 of the best: Champions League goal records (1)

Published 8 Comments

Jermain Defoe created a small piece of history last night when he smacked his penalty kit into the roof of the net.

The England forward is now, thanks to his goal last night, Tottenham's greatest European goalscorer, overtaking Martin Chivers with his strike at White Hart Lane last evening.

While Defoe now has 23 strikes on the continent to his name he has someway to go if he wants to catch up with the greatest goalscorers Europe has ever seen - the likes of Gerd Muller, Lionel Messi and a host of others have their name etched into the annals of football's past.

Ever want to know who has the fastest hat-trick in Europe? Or the youngest ever scorer?
