Luis Suarez He entered soccer history after scoring his 500th career goal. Not many forwards can boast of that merit. Actually, Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi They are the maximum exponents of these figures, but who was the first?
Imre Schlosser was the pioneer. The historic Hungarian footballer became a legend of continental Europe in 1927, when on April 3 he scored in the victory of Ferencvaros in view of Budai (3-0), at 38 years and 69 days, thus achieving his 500 goal. He did not score many more, since his retirement came soon after that milestone, leaving the score at 504. Of all those goals, 411 were scored in the Hungarian league, where he still holds the record. The rest of the goals are divided into 6 in the Austrian league, 17 in the Hungarian Cup, and a goal in the match to be decided in the final of the championship in his country. The rest of the goals were 10 in international tournaments and another 59 that he scored with his national team.
