Ruud van Nistelrooy

A phenomenal goalscorer throughout his career, Ruud van Nistelrooy won Golden Boot awards in three of the four countries he played in, as well as being a three-time Champions League top goalscorer.

As well as boasting an impressive goalscoring record at club level, the Dutchman has found the net 35 times in 70 appearances for his country.

However, despite being fourth on the list of all-time Champions League record goalscorers, the former Manchester United and Real Madrid man has never come close to getting his hands on the trophy.
