Even though the 2022 season is coming to a conclusion, the players have been reliable throughout, scoring goals and winning titles. They’ll finish the year hoping to add to their goal totals and honour their clubs and nations.

The international governing body of football, , has never released a list of the top goal scorers and does not maintain official data.

Interestingly, Cristiano Ronaldo, the all-time leading scorer with a record where he scored his 819th goal, is not included in the list due to his poor form during the 2022 season.

Despite a sluggish start at his new club PSG, Lionel Messi won the World Cup in 2022, he made the list and has been a fixture in front of goal.

However, here is the top 10 players in 2022 with the most goals for the club and nation.

10. Mehdi Taremi – 34

Taremi was a revelation during the World Cup, but he has been a wonderful player for Porto, even if the World Cup was the first time the world saw his goal-scoring exploits, as he helped beat Wales and kept the dream of reaching the final rounds intact. Taremi, scored 34 goals in 50 games for club and country in 2022, is still one of Porto’s best strikers.

9. Sadio Mane – 34

The ex-Liverpool player joined Bayern Munich and started to score. The 2022 season was one of Sadio Mane’s best performances. He led Senegal to the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) and scored 34 goals in 62 games for both club and country.

7. Harry Kane – 34

The Tottenham player has scored 34 goals in 61 matches this season for both club and country. The Three Lions were eliminated in the quarterfinals, despite the fact that his World Cup journey ended on a depressing note when he missed a penalty against France.

4. Christopher Nkunku – 37

Nkunku had a pivotal season for his career and was being pursued by a number of top clubs, but reports claim that he has signed with and will play for them in the upcoming campaign.

With 37 goals for France and Leipzig in 2022, his records should not be disregarded. He leads the Bundesliga in scoring, but due to an injury, he was unable to take part in the World Cup 2022. Nevertheless, his future seems bright, and perhaps he will stick to his word.

While two young players, Haaland and Mbappe, have emerged as two of the best scorers in 2022.

2. Erling Haaland – 43

Haaland seems to have it all under control, and although being only 22 years old, he presents a serious threat to his opponents. His contribution is vital for both club and the country. He is a complete striker with exceptional ball sense. Haaland is a goal-scoring cheat code, thus he has no trouble finding the back of the net.

He is renowned for his speed, strength, and finishing. He is regarded as one of the top players in the world. Throughout his career, Haaland has broken numerous records and received numerous individual honours.

He was back in action, scoring in Manchester City’s victory over Liverpool and Leed United. In 2022, the former Dortmund striker has 43 goals in 40 appearances for club and country, an incredible feat.

1. Kylian Mbappe – 55

He is regarded as one of the top players in the world and is known for his dribbling skills, outstanding speed, and finishing ability.

Kylian Mbappe, a highly regarded prospect helped France advance to the World Cup 2022 final, is something for which France should be grateful. In what initially seemed to be a lacklustre performance against spirited Argentina, Mbappe took the situation into his own hands and saved France with a hat-trick as the match went to penalties, which the South Americans ultimately won.

But Mbappe merits applause for single-handedly putting France in the World Cup, with eight goals, while at the club level, he is firing on all cylinders, with 55 goals in 55 matches for club and country in all competitions in 2022.
