  1. It's amazing to see the birthplaces of top scorer players mapped. I can't believe Benzema was born in France!

  2. Nothing to say... Messi has written his name in golden letters between the best scorers in the history of La liga. This year, he became the best top scorer in one

    season with 50 goal (Too far from Ronaldo with 40 or Hugo Sanchez with 38) and currently he's the 12th between the all time la liga top scorers with 169 but he's only

    24 years... I think with this ratio, he needs only two or three years to break Telmo Zarra's record, as the all time la liga best scorer with 252 !!
