Leading Active International Goalscorers, CR7 Miles Ahead Of Messi

With both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi set to take part in major tournaments for their respective nations over the coming month, here is where they rank among the 10 leading active goalscorers in international football!

Click through the gallery above to see the 10 leading active international scorers, according to various sources.

The 2020 UEFA European Championship begins this Friday, where Ronaldo will be hoping to add to his goals tally for his country if he does not already do so in Portugal's friendly against Israel on Wednesday night.

The Juventus star has found the back of the net on an incredible 103 occasions for A Selecao since his senior debut in 2003, making him the leading active goalscorer in football today and second on the all-time list.

There is a fairly big gap between Ronaldo and second place, which is not held by longstanding rival Messi but rather by India's Sunil Chhetri, who climbed up the standing with a brace against Bangladesh on Monday.

Messi, in fact, is not even third on the list, with United Arab Emirates forward Ali Mabkhout having scored one more goal than he has. The Barcelona captain's 72 goals for Argentina are good enough for fourth place, although Poland's Robert Lewandowski closing in on him.
