    Details on FIFA Rulings

    Olympic Matches

    FIFA decided in 1999 that while all Olympic matches from 1908-1952 (bar those involving Great Britain or countries with a professional league who sent amateur squads, e.g. Austria in 1936) are full internationals, all matches since the sixties are not at all recognised, while for the intermediate part additional analysis will be made. Ten years later, no such analysis appears to have been forthcoming. Most Eastern European and Scandinavian FAs (to whom the issue is most relevant) have ignored the ruling, and the relevant countries have the totals as recognised by the responsible FAs included in the list. Japan recognised most of its Olympic matches as official in 2015.

    FIFA and Continental Representations

    In January 2001, FIFA deleted all matches against FIFA XI's or continental representations. However, most FAs (including those of Brazil, England, France and Italy) did not follow this ruling and keep the relevant matches in their records.

    The above list therefore ignores this FIFA ruling.

    Notes:
    
     [ 1] Puskás scored all his 84 international goals in his 85 appearances 
          for Hungary; in his 4 internationals for Spain he did not score.  Note 
          that Puskás had a match vs Lebanon played in 1956 recognised as official
          by the Hungarian FA in May 2002 (!).  Puskás scored 1 goal in that match.
     [ 2] Woodward scored 29 goals in 23 matches for the official England team
          between 1903 and 1911 and 44 goals in 30 matches for the England 
          Amateur side between 1906 and 1914; all matches for the Amateur side
          were considered full internationals for their respective opponents.
     [ 3] Includes Daei's cap but not his goal on October 27, 2003, against
          North Korea; the match was abandoned and later awarded 3-0 to Iran.
     [ 4] Suker scored 45 goals in 69 matches for Croatia and 1 goal in 2 
          matches for (former) Yugoslavia.
     [ 5] Previous official Polish records included unofficial matches.  Earlier 
          records included: Lubanski 50 goals in 81 matches, Lato 45 in 104, 
          Deyna 45 in 102, Pol 40 in 49 and Szarmach 36 in 64 (now 25 in 55).
     [ 6] Ulf Kirsten scored 14 goals in 49 matches for East Germany and 20 
          goals in 51 matches for Germany.
     [ 7] Iuliu Bodola scored 30 goals in 48 matches for Romania and 4 goals 
          in 13 matches for Hungary.
     [ 8] several players had Olympic matches (and possibly goals) deleted
          from their records - or not.
     [ 9] several players had matches (and possibly goals) against FIFA or 
          continental representations deducted - or not, see below. 
     [10] Ernest Wilimowski scored 21 goals in 22 matches for Poland and 13
          goals in 8 matches for Germany.
     [11] This total includes 1 goal in 1 match against an East Germany
          olympic team in a match which the Bulgarian FA insists is official.
     [12] Note that Tichy had a match vs Lebanon played in 1956 recognised 
          as official by the Hungarian FA in May 2002 (!).  He scored two goals 
          in that match.
     [13] Note that Sarosi had a match vs Portugal played in 1933 recognised 
          as official by the Hungarian FA in May 2002 (!).  He did not score in
          that match.
     [14] This includes goals from Olympic and other matches recognised by
          the Bulgarian FA (but not by FIFA) as official.
    

    Details on FIFA Rulings

    Olympic Matches

    FIFA decided in 1999 that while all Olympic matches from 1908-1952 (bar those involving Great Britain or countries with a professional league who sent amateur squads, e.g. Austria in 1936) are full internationals, all matches since the sixties are not at all recognised, while for the intermediate part additional analysis will be made. Ten years later, no such analysis appears to have been forthcoming. Most Eastern European and Scandinavian FAs (to whom the issue is most relevant) have ignored the ruling, and the relevant countries have the totals as recognised by the responsible FAs included in the list. Japan recognised most of its Olympic matches as official in 2015.

    FIFA and Continental Representations

    In January 2001, FIFA deleted all matches against FIFA XI's or continental representations. However, most FAs (including those of Brazil, England, Frane and Italy) did not follow this ruling and keep the relevant matches in their records.

    The above list therefore ignores this FIFA ruling.

    Potential Candidates for the Thirty Goals Club

    The following players may have more than 30 goals for their country (numbers indicated are not yet official and under investigation) or may reach that total in the near future:
