The Big Show-Men

We're sticking with the goal categories as we continue our Americas Abroad career count updates, this time getting more specific to tally markers from the top continental competitions around the globe. Normally, I'd just deal with UEFA cups and call it a day. No more.

I have combined our version of a Champions League and South America's always thrilling Copa Libertadores into one category, as several of the players you'll see listed played in both tournaments during their time with Mexican clubs. It just seemed right.

All of the charts below are for the tournments proper. No qualifying goals are included, only group stage and beyond (or an equivalent from back in the day before group stages). Guys sporting an asterisk are still active in the region where they're listed.

UEFA Champions League

4 DaMarcus Beasley
3 Christian Pulisic*
2 Fabian Johnson
   Jermaine Jones

Tied w/1: Tyler Adams*, Maurice Edu, Jovan Kirovski, Sacha Kljestan, Weston McKennie*

12 Hérculez Gómez

And just so you don't think we left any relevant bases uncovered...
