Croatian HEAD and Shoulders Above Messi and Ronaldo

CroatiaIt’s a goal scoring record that not even Ronaldo or Messi owns. Nobody from the top five football leagues in Europe (England, Spain, France, Italy, Germany), has scored more goals in the last two years with their head than Croatia’s Mario Manđžukić.

Manđžukić has scored 42 goals in Germany’s Bundesliga, with 20 coming from his head. Nearly every second goal the striker scores is off his noggin. Manđžukić again found the back of the net last night in Bayern Munich’s Champions League 1-0 win at Viktoria Plzen with his head to continue his fantastic run. For Croatia the tall, tattooed marksmen has found the back of the net five times with his head, against Latvia, South Korea, Turkey, and twice against Ireland.
