Colombian forwards are making a name for themselves in world football. The International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS) recently released a list of the top scorers in South America during the 21st century, and two Colombians made the cut. Radamel Falcao García and Dayro Moreno are among the top 15 attackers in South America, with 343 and 326 goals respectively.
Falcao, who currently plays for Rayo Vallecano, is in twelfth place on the continental ranking and seventh among active footballers. He has scored 225 goals in national leagues, 23 in national cups, 59 in international tournaments, and 36 with the Colombian National Team. Moreno, who plays for Once Caldas, has scored 285 goals in leagues, 23 in cups, 15 in international tournaments, and 3 with the national team.
The top spot on the list is held by Lionel Messi with 821 goals, followed by Luis Suárez and Edinson Cavani from Uruguay, Neymar and Sergio ‘Kun’ Agüero from Brazil. Other notable names on the list include Fred, Ricardo Oliveira, Óscar Cardozo, Gonzalo Higuaín, Luis Fabiano, Hulk, Vágner Love, and Magno Alves.
In terms of recent performance, Falcao has played four official matches in 2024 with his Spanish club but has not yet scored. Moreno, on the other hand, has played a match with Once Caldas in the BetPlay League and scored a goal that contributed to the team’s victory against Boyacá Chicó.
Moreno is just seven goals away from surpassing Sergio Galván Rey as the top scorer in Colombian professional football (FPC). Both Falcao and Moreno have made significant contributions to their respective teams and national teams, showcasing their scoring abilities and talent on the field.
