Jesuriya (AS Roma) 3 years ago
Babayaro at 16 years. The younger one of babayaro brothers remember then both playing for nigeria. Not like botang brothers facing each others. Lol
Sam (Juventus) 3 years ago
Jesuriya on the money.... Celestine Babayaro is the right answer.
Won a gold medal at the 1996 Olympics with Nigeria.
First played in the champions league with Anderlecht, and became the youngest player to receive a red card in the UEFA Champions League when he was sent off in a match between Steaua Bucuresti and his club Anderlecht (1-1) at an age of 16 years and 86 days
Sam (Juventus) 3 years ago
I began my playing career at Corinthians in Brazil as a defender.
I moved on to Sporting Lisbon in Portugal, where I made 37 appearances.
I only scored 1 goal while at Sporting; however what was unique about this goal was that it remains the fastest recorded shot in history.
I now currently play alongside my brother in Germany.
Who am I?
Somere (Portmore Utd) 3 years ago

I hold the record for most goals scored in all competitions in one season.
I was the first player to wear the number "9" in club football.
I had more goals than appearances for my national team.
The club for which I had the most appearances erected a statue of me outside their stadium in 2001.

Donnchadh (Liverpool) 3 years ago
Name a player who has a goal scoring ratio of over. 75 for their country.

Who has the most clean sheets in international footballing histroy?
Pragathish (AC Milan) 3 years ago
Ronaldo(not the hairgel abuser)    By "who" you mean country or player? (sorry I had to ask!)
GreatScot (Rangers)(Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
I'll go for Kluivert of Holland and i'll guess at Pagliuca former Italy International(and one of my all time favourite keepers!)
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Puskas?
Kimaway17 (Liverpool) 3 years ago
Erm Ali Daei? And no clue with the clean sheets

Rockerr (Liverpool) 3 years ago
Gerd Muller
Jesuriya (AS Roma) 3 years ago
Donnchadh revel the answers...
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 3 years ago
Sorry boys I have been off for quite some time

For the .75 goal ratio there are a few answers. Puskas is one 84 in 85 appearances dumb really haha, Gerd Muller is another he had a ridiculous goal scoring ratio for West Germany of 1.09. Ali Daeli has the most international goals scored at 109 but a ratio just under the mark at .73, many guessed Pele which is correct .84 77 in 92 matches. There are also two Scandinavians with ridiculous goal scoring records Poul Nielsen of Denmark has 52 in 38!? And Sven Rydell of Sweden has 49 in 43. There are probably others, these are all I could find. I think it may be some time before a player for his country has this kind of prolific record again. The game is becoming more defensive, especially at the international level.


Going with that trend I believe it is two modern goalkeepers who hold the most clean sheets for their country. Edwin Van der Sar has a ridiculous 71 clean sheets for the Netherlands. Casillas may be up there too, he had kept 52 clean sheets as of 2009. I am pretty sure Van der Sar holds that record though. Much harder to find these kind of clean sheet records than goal scoring records haha. Peter Shilton is up there too with 66, and shares a record with Barthez(really Barthez haha) of having kept 10 WC clean sheets. If you can do some research and find someone with more than the 71 of VDS I would love to see it. Thomas Ravelli may be one to look into, as well as getting an updated number for Casillas. Most of my numbers I got from this awesome list.

p.s. Prag and Greatscott Ronaldo has 62 in 98 caps, while Kluivert has 40 in 79 both wonderful tallies, just harder to score goals in the modern international game. Look at the best player in the world right now I don't think his ratio can be above 2 in 5 for Argentina. Though he doesn't really play in that pure goal scoring role, especially for Argentina (Maradona has 34 in 91 Messi has 17 in 60). I am surprised that the leading dutch goal scorer is Patrick with 40 so many legends, Cruijff, Neeskens, Rep, Van Basten, Gullit, Bergkamp, Van Nistelrooy, Van Persie
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Not sure on the clean sheets. But looking at caps wise I am sure Zoff, Maier, and Zubizarreta can probably bring some good numbers
Pragathish (AC Milan) 3 years ago
Which foreign player(non-Italian) in Serie A has scored the most number of braces over the past three calcio seasons?    
Kimaway17 (Liverpool) 3 years ago
Are you serious?
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 3 years ago
Sammy Eto'o mayhap
ManUK (Manchester United) 3 years ago
I'm thinking Ibrahimovic or Eto'o as well
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 3 years ago
But Eto'o has only been in serie a for two seasons I believe so that probably isn't right. Is it Pato?
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 3 years ago
Haha nice Kaden reminds me of the good old days when you would go to post something and there is something above because someone posted first the instant responses hahaha
Pragathish (AC Milan) 3 years ago
Donnchadh gets it right, it is Alexandre Pato!
Pato has an uncanny routine of scoring stunning braces and getting injured the very next match leaving us Milan fans debate whether we must accept that 50M offer from Chelsea
ManUK (Manchester United) 3 years ago
Haha yea Donn, I remember when everybody would post two seconds after each other. It got confusing
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 3 years ago
Bit easier: how many times did George Weah win the African player of the year award

Bit tougher:how many goals did Johan Cruijff score in his time with Ajax in how many appearances, and how many did he score for the Netherlands in how many appearances
Pragathish (AC Milan) 3 years ago
1) 3 times African player of the year and 1 time player of the century!  2) Dude!  
GreatScot (Rangers)(Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
1) 3 times    2) Absolutely no way I can guess that without the aid of google so I'm just going to pass on that one! Lol
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 3 years ago
Ya that one is super tough, hoping someone like Jeroen may stumble upon it and give it a crack. To give a hint they are ridiculous goal scoring ratios for both club and country. In the mean time though, here is another piece of Cruijff trivia that may be a little more realistic for people to know. What club did he score, what the Catalans call the "gol de imposible" against? Back heeling it into the net from a tight angle with his right boot above his head, while he played for Barca of course
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
@ the Cruijff one. It was Atletico I believe
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Man, I've been missing out for sure. I haven't been on footytube on a regular basis and if I was, I was on the Barça chat.

As for Johan:
I know he's 'only' gathered 48 caps for Holland, but he did score 33 times. I'm not sure about his Ajax and Barça stats (nevermind the short spells at the American teams he's played for, his second spell at Ajax and then at Feyenoord). But here's a guess:
Ajax (first spell): 250 games, 185 goals?
Barcelona: 150 games, 75 goals?

Edit: just checked, I'm almost spot on for the Ajax one, but he's scored a meagre 48 goals in 140 games for Barça. Johan, I am disappoint.
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 3 years ago
Haha nice Jeroen, I knew you would be close no the Ajax tallly. What a ridiculous ratio that is 190 in 240 appearances that's getting it done. 33 in 48 also very impressive, whenever he scored Holland never lost
