These players have been one of the best goalscorers for their clubs.

A few of the top football players around the globe play for European clubs in the UEFA Champions League. Just the best clubs from Europe’s leagues compete in the continent’s premier club competition. In the competition, English players have had great success and have assisted their respective teams in bringing home the championship. They have made a significant impact on the Champions League’s past and are still doing so today.

The top 10 English players in terms of goals scored in the UEFA Champions League are shown below:

10. Peter Crouch (M34 G13)

Between 2005 and 2010, he received 42 caps for the England national team, collecting 22 goals for his country, and participating in two FIFA World Cup competitions. He sets the record of scoring the most headed goals in Premier League history and is among the 33 players with 100 or more goals in the league. Crouch has 13 goals in 34 games throughout the Champions League and the Premier League combined.

9. Theo Walcott (M59 G15)

During most of his career, his manager Arsène Wenger used him on the wing due to his quick pace and ball crossing. During the 2012–13 campaign, when he was Arsenal’s leading scorer, Walcott has been used as a forward, and he has more than 100 goals to his name.

Although he never won the Champions League with Arsenal, he does have a respectable record there with 15 goals in 29 games.

8. David Beckham (M107 G16)

One of the best and most renowned playmakers of his generation as well as one of the greatest set-piece experts of all time, Beckham has repeatedly been praised. He became the first English player to have won league championships in four different nations: France, England, Spain, and the United States.

Beckham is also praised for being among the finest Manchester United footballers of all time and one of the best English footballers throughout the history of the game due to his talent and accomplishments for both club and nation. Despite playing in the midfield, he has scored 16 goals in the Champions League and has also won the title once, in 1999, when Manchester United defeated Bayern Munich in a stunning comeback.

7. Andy Cole (M48 G18)

With 187 goals, he is the fourth-highest goalscorer in Premier League history. He also holds the records of having the most goals scored in a 42-game season (34), being the quickest to reach 50 goals (65 matches), and being the first player to lead both the Premier League assists and goalscoring charts in the same season, in 1993–94.

Nevertheless, the English Premier League isn’t the only competition where he has had an impression; with 18 goals and a trophy to his credit for United, he also has a strong record in the Champions League.

6. Harry Kane (M24 G21)

Kane is recognised as one of the top strikers in the world since he scores goals frequently and plays well with his teammates. He is jointly the top goalscorer in history for both Tottenham and England. He also has the third-most goals scored in the history of the Premier League.
Kane has a strong record in the Champions League despite playing just 24 times overall. He has scored 21 goals. In the 2018–19 season, the 29-year-old also advanced to the tournament final but fell to Liverpool.

5. Steven Gerrard (M73 G21)

From 1998 until 2015, Gerrard was a member of the Liverpool team and won nine medals with them, along with the UEFA Champions League, two FA Cups, and three League Cups. At the 2005 UEFA Champions League Final, in which Liverpool overcame a 3-0 lead to beat AC Milan on penalties, he was named Man of the Match.

The former England player contributed significantly to Liverpool’s ability to overcome the deficit and win the trophy. He also scored 21 goals in the Champions League.

4. Frank Lampard (M105 G23)

His tenure at London, Chelsea is what made him most famous. With 211 goals scored in all competitions throughout his thirteen seasons at the club, Lampard became Chelsea’s all-time greatest scorer. Lampard enshrined himself as a prodigious midfield striker.

Lampard, a midfielder, had the dexterity to score goals because he still holds the record for most goals scored in the Champions League with 23.

3. Paul Scholes (M124 G24)

Scholes was a member of Fergie’s Fledglings, a group of youngsters signed by Manchester United while it was led by Sir Alex Ferguson, and he graduated through the club’s youth programme. He eventually made 718 matches for the team, which is the third-highest total of any player.

With Manchester United, Scholes collected 25 trophies including 11 Premier League crowns (the most of any other English player) and two UEFA Champions League titles.

2. Raheem Sterling (M71 G27)

Sterling has played for three Premier League largest clubs and remains second as the best English goal-scorer in the Champions League. The England international recently joined Chelsea. Despite having only scored 27 goals so far, Sterling is still four goals away from breaking the record for most English goals in the Champions League.

1. Wayne Rooney (M85 G30)

Wayne Rooney is one of the best United players ever. He scored 253 goals for the team overall, making him the club’s all-time leading scorer. His 183 Premier League goals for United rank third among all players for any one club. Rooney is the second-leading scorer in the history of the Premier League with 208 goals.
