Germán Cano is a son of Colombian soccer. Thanks to Deportivo Pereira, who brought him from Colón de Santa Fe 11 years ago and gave him the opportunity to shine in the First A Category. His 10 goals in 18 games seduced the Paraguayan Nacional, but there he did not have much luck and had return to coffee lands to perform with Independiente Medellín. Whenever he put on the DIM jersey he showed his goalscoring ability, the same one that today has him enjoying a unique position in the world.

Since he arrived at Fluminense at the beginning of 2022, no other soccer player in the world has scored more goals than the Argentine born in Lomas de Zamora, province of Buenos Aires. Neither Kylian Mbappé, nor Cristiano Ronaldo, nor Neymar, nor Lionel Messi, much less the Norwegian Erling Haaland or Karim Benzema. The latter is five goals ahead in the list. It should be remembered that Cano holds the record for the most goals scored in the same short tournament in Colombian football (21).

The players with the most goals in the five major European leagues (2022)

– 27 goals: Kylian Mbappé (PSG).

– 25 goals: Karim Benzema (Real Madrid).

– 23 goals: Sadio Mané (Bayern Munich).

– 22 goals: Robert Lewandowski (Barcelona) and Christopher Nkunku (RB Leipzig).

– 20 goals: Erling Haaland (Manchester City).

– 19 goals: Wissam Ben Yedder (Monaco).

– 18 goals: Moussa Dembélé (Olympique de Lyon), Heung-min Son (Tottenham) and Harry Kane (Tottenham).

Among the greats the son of Colombian football

However, Cano has 30 goals and six assists since he arrived at Fluminense. The curious thing is that he arrived without costing the Rio de Janeiro club anything. 50 games, 20 goals in the local league, 13 of those are for the current Brasileirao of which he is the top scorer; four in the Carioca Tournament, three for the CONMEBOL Libertadores Cup and the same for the South American Cup. In addition to that, he formed a lethal duo with the Colombian former Santa Fe and América de Cali, Jhon Arias.
