Top 10: Goalscoring goalkeepers

Rogerio Ceni

The king of goal-grabbing goalies, São Paulo's Rogério Ceni is officially recognised by FIFA as being the highest-scoring goalkeeper in the history of the game.

But unlike many fellow glory-seeking glove-botherers, he hasn't just collected easy goals from 12 yards. Ceni has an uncanny ability to put the ball in the back of the net from outside the box too, notching almost 50 strikes from free-kicks in a remarkable career -“ see this clipreel for evidence.

His combination of balding pate and leggings may not make him as marketable as Becks, but his dead-ball prowess makes him just as dangerous -“ and, to São Paolo fans, just as iconic.
