The World’s Highest Scoring Goalkeeper of Decade 2011-2020: Rogério Ceni (Brazil)
Despite having played only a half of the decade (5 years out of 10), Rogério Ceni hadn’t competition in this category.
The legendary Brazilian have scored in top level games, since Jan 1, 2011 until finishing his phenomenal career in 2015, 36 goals from penalties and free kicks.
It was just a small part of his unbelievable total career tally (129 goals) but no one was able to compete with him even in the frame of this decade. Nearest to him Exar Rosales and Mario Villasanti have scored “modest” 10 goals each.
Only 11 goalkeepers managed to scored 7 and more goals during the decade. 8 of them played in South American leagues.
