Players with most pokers in XXI century
In connection with Cristiano Ronaldo's recent poker (4 goals in a game) in a Saudi Arabia league match, we publish for the first time the ranking of players with most pokers in XXI century (only top level games are considered).
It was 11th poker in CR7 career; this amount is made up of 8 pokers in national leagues, 1 in Champions League and 2 for Portugal. he scored 4 goals in a single game 9 times and 5 goals twice.
There is only one man with more such feats: Ali Ashfaq. The prolific striker from Maldives managed to score 4+ goals in 18 games for his clubs and country!
In the table, players with at least 5 pokers in XXI century are ranked. Two of them (Lloyd Williams and Gruznov) made few pokers also in XX century (they are indicated in brackets).
The total number of pokers is broken down by competitions and by “size”.
The right column (7+) mean 7 or more goals in a game (12 for Ashfaq, 7 for Bounedjah).
Tie-breakers: 1) most international pokers (ICC+NT), 2) most national league pokers (NL), 3) aggregate “size” of pokers (sum of goals in consideration).
Active players are taken in bold.
