Chelsea join Barcelona as World Cup goalscoring leaders – 101 Great Goals


On Thursday evening, a view was given of the clubs best represented in terms of goalscorers in the last edition of the World Cup.

The latest round of matches on international football’s biggest stage, of course, ended recently.

After Morocco and Croatia booked their respective places in the knockout rounds of the competition at the expense of Belgium earlier in the day, Spain and Japan did the same tonight, sending Germany through to the group stage for the second World Cup competition.

Despite their eventual elimination, however, Germany at least managed to grab a three-point shot, courtesy of a Costa Rica comeback.

And it was a Chelsea man who was the star of the show for Die Mannschaft, in the form of Kai Havertz.

Introduced in the afternoon from the bench by Hansi Flick, Havertz quickly opened his account in Qatar, before closing it with a second just over ten minutes later.

This in turn took Chelsea’s World Cup goal-scoring representatives to an impressive five, the joint-most of any club, along with Barcelona.

All told, the Blues have now seen Havertz, Christian Pulisic, Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly and Hakim Ziyech as favorites in their respective countries over the past few weeks.

Barcelona, ​​on the other hand, has been represented in the goals department by Frenkie de Jong, Gavi, Ferran Torres, Robert Lewandowski and Andreas Christensen.
