Harambee Stars captain Michael Olunga is in the midst of elite company, after a social media user compiled a list of all the top scorers worldwide under the age of 29.

Olunga is considered one of the best strikers Kenya has ever produced, in the same category as Dennis 'The Menace' Oliech.

2. Harry Kane - 323 goals

Hot on Lukaku's heels is Tottenham Hotspur's marksman. Kane firmly has Alan Shearer's Premier League record of 260 goals in his sets. His only undoing is that he has yet to win any trophy, but his goal scoring potential remains intact.

3. Aleksandar Mitrovic - 238 goals

The Fulham striker is third on the list, given his exploits in the Championship and this season's Premier League campaign.

4. Kylian Mbappe - 237 goals

At only 23, Mbappe has managed to break numerous records. He is expected to continue scaling up the heights, especially with a couple of Ballon d'Or titles in his mind.

5. Gabigol -222 goals

The Brazilian striker is currently at Flamengo after a short stint in Europe that didn't turn out so well.

6. Michael Olunga - 214 goals

Olunga has dominated the Japanese league, the Qatari League, the Swedish League and has a memorable hat-trick in La Liga. He is currently at Al Duhail.

7. Alvaro Morata - 212 goals

The Spanish striker has revolved around big clubs such as Juventus, Real Madrid and Chelsea. He is currently at Atletico Madrid.

8. Morten Liebert - 203 goals

A surprise name in the list is SV Todesfelde's striker. It's still a mystery why he hasn't moved to a superior league yet, given his impressive numbers.

9. Fabio Lima - 194 goals

The Al-Wasl striker makes the list, having made a name for himself since joining the club in 2014.

10. Memphis Depay - 189 goals

The Dutch striker's career failed to take off in the Premier League with Manchester United, but he was rejuvenated at Lyon. Despite the nation's recent failures at major tournaments, he has also been the Netherlands' go-to person for goals.

The footballers who have the most goals in history

Sports Brief had earlier reported about football's remarkable journey, with the rising of many outstanding strikers capable of scoring goals at will.

Pele, Ferenc Puskas, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are the players who come to mind when talking about the greatest scorers globally.

But which footballer has the most goals in history?
