No other player has breached the 100-goal mark, with former Spain international striker Raul languishing some way behind in third place on 71 goals. The majority of his return came during his time with Real Madrid, although he also featured for Bundesliga side Schalke in the tournament. 

Zlatan Ibrahimovic comes in at 10th place with 48 goals to his name.
