Messi, Ronaldo, Salah: The players with the most left-footed goals since 2000

Cristiano Ronaldo is the greatest goalscorer of all-time.

The Portuguese forward has scored an incredible 807 goals in his professional career, which is more than any other player in history.

The vast majority of Ronaldo’s goals have come via his favoured right-foot.

But, while he’s predominantly right-footed, he’s also more than capable of hitting the back of the net with his ‘weaker’ left-foot.

In fact, Ronaldo has scored an impressive 109 goals at club level with his left-foot.

But how does that compare to some of the best strikers of the 21st century?

PopFoot have listed the 20 players that have scored the most left-footed goals at club level since 2000.

Ronaldo, despite being right-footed, features in the top 10. View the full list below…



Only five players have scored more goals at club level this century than Ronaldo.

That is quite incredible given Ronaldo is predominantly right-footed. It just goes to show that Ronaldo can score all types of goals.

In fact, Ronaldo may possess a better left-foot than some of the other players on the list!

Ronaldo’s tally is impressive but he still finds himself more than 300 left-footed goals behind eternal rival, Lionel Messi.

Messi has scored a quite ridiculous 424 goals at club level with his left-foot, which is 284 goals more than second placed Mohamed Salah.

Antoine Griezmann, Lukas Podolski and Arjen Robben are the other players who have scored more left-footed goals than Ronaldo.

The 37-year-old will have his eyes set on surpassing Robben’s tally. The Dutch legend has already hung up his boots.

Ronaldo is just one of two players that are right-footed and feature on the list, the other being Robert Lewandowski.

The Polish striker has scored 76 club goals with his left-foot and is currently 18th on the list.
