Who do you think tops the charts? Find out here as we give you the Top 5 highest-scoring goalkeepers in the world of football.

A goalkeeper has one of the most important and least exciting jobs in football. Simply put, he or she has to keep the ball out of their own net to spare the team of defeat in matches.

It involves little activity during the 90 minutes of a game, unless the opposition completely dominate. Keepers, therefore, are one of the least awarding roles in football.

In fact, there hasn’t been a Ballon d’Or winner for a shot-stopper since the legendary Lev Yashin in 1963.

Not that there has been no memorable moments, with many keepers standing out in history for various reasons. The most surprising one is their goal-scoring abilities.

Seeing them defy all the rules by sticking the ball into the opposition’s net is a sight to savour for all of us.

So here we give you the Top 5 keepers with the most goals in football.
