Random players who "answer the call" of their country

Recommended Posts

Aleksandar Mitrović scored his 34th senior international goal for Serbia this weekend at the age of just 25. And only from 55 appearances.

Eduardo Vargas, a bit of a journeyman attacker, has scored 38 goals for Chile from 91 caps. Only bettered by Alexis Sánchez in the all time list for Chile.

Peter Crouch has a better minutes per goal ratio for England than Lineker, Shearer and Rooney. 22 goals from 42 games for England. A goal every 99 minutes.

Stern John, once of Birmingham, Coventry and Southampton, has scored an incredible 70 goals from 115 appearances for Trinidad & Tobago. In comparison, Dwight Yorke scored 19 goals.

Can you think of other freak examples?

Lukaku. 52 in 84.

He has the luxury of not having to do anything but tap in goals for Belgium put on a plate for him by world class playmakers.

Chicharito for Mexico. 52 in 109

On the other hand, Chicharito has a knack for tapping in goals that he has no right to get to.

Lukaku is a good goalscorer, he just stat pads a bit. Never as clinical against elite opposition. So I’m not surprised.

Chicharito has gone to shit in the 2nd half of his career. :(

So far kieffer moore lol 

We made Steve Morison and Darcy Blake play well for a good spell at least way more so than their club level form, the likes of Bale, Ramsey, Allen and so far Dan James seem to light it up and give their all on the regular, Bale above all else
