CR7 & Messi Beaten To Most Goals In Calendar Year For First Time Since 2009

Cristiano Ronaldo & Lionel Messi Beaten To Most Goals In A Calendar Year For The First Time Since 2009

By Kurt Buckerfield - Dec 27, 2017 05:30 PM @KurtLaduma

One of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi has finished as the highest goalscorer in a calendar year since 2010, but that run has now come to an abrupt end.

Click through the gallery above to see the top scorer every calendar year since 2010, according to Transfermarkt!

English striker Harry Kane wrote his name into the history books with his hat-trick for Tottenham Hotspur against Southampton on Tuesday.

His three strikes means he is 2017's top scorer with 56 goals for club and country, becoming the first player other than Messi or Ronaldo to achieve the No. 1 spot since David Villa in 2009. Kane's 56 strikes is, however, the lowest tally since Villa's 43 goals eight years ago.

The most goals ever scored in a single year was 91, which Barcelona and Argentina's Messi achieved in 2012.

The Argentine was leading the way this year with 54 goals until Kane's lethal display in Spurs' 5-2 win over Southampton, while Ronaldo's highest ever tally was his 69 strikes in 2013.

Red-Hot Kane Breaks Two Premier League Records

Kane has already scored 18 league goals for Spurs this season, and is now just four strikes away from bringing up 100 league strikes for the Lilywhites.

Are you surprised by the 24-year-old's achievements? Let us know in the comments section below.

It is amazing how LM10 & CR7 have dominated the sport & set records that will possibly take more than 5 individuals to ever break.

I came to vuka to hel me get my bofriend back I caught him cheating on me and he left me,I naturally was angry but forgave him we worked it out but he vuka put him and I didn’t believe it but it took 7 days I counted and showed up at my job on a Friday as I was leaving work he was very apologetic and told me how much he loved me and begged me to take him back.I called Jay to tell him but it was late and Jay called me back the next day to hear the story he told me that this was natural and expected.It felt weird but I went with it and so far we have been doing great.I want to make things clear and that’s it felt weird cause my bofriend never acted like this before and I know it was because of the spl that’s why am here to thank vuka ”Contact vuka the Great Healer now for your relationship and problems, financial problems i.e win lotto,get promoted/permanent@work,start/ boost your busis,win tenders,win court cases, or whatsapp her your problem now””on zero,,six,,one,,seven,,eight,, seven,,four,,six,,four,,eig

1 thing that has made Messi and Ronaldo special is consistently. The past decade only this two players are consistent. Good promising Players came and go Bt they remained. Just hope Kane can do dis for five years

I'm waiting to hear if Lionel Messi fans are going to say both Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi are finished, because that's what they were going to say if it was about CR7 alone.
