5 Outfield Football Players

The main aim of a football match is to score a goal. Whether you’re a striker, midfielder, defender, or goalkeeper, scoring a goal should naturally happen at some point in your career. In a few instances, though, that doesn’t always materialize.

Today we will be looking at the members of the not-so-proud club of outfield footballers who never found the back of the net.

Here are five outfield football players who never scored a goal.

1. Frank Womack

1. Frank Womack

Frank Womack is a former professional footballer who was active in the early 20th century.

Francis, or Frank as he was popularly called, played over 500 games for various club sides, including Birmingham City, Worcester City, and Torquay United.

The former tough-tackling fullback is one of the few outfield players who never scored a goal.

Frank Womack holds the league record for most games (511) played by an outfield football player without scoring a single goal.

Despite this, he won a Second Division championship with Birmingham in 1921.

He would later enjoy a successful managerial career, coaching the likes of Leicester City, Notts County, and Oldham Athletic.

2. Tony Hibbert

Tony Hibbert

Hibbert was a proud one-club man featured for his boyhood team Everton FC between 1998-2016.

The fullback played over 265 games for the Merseysiders without surprisingly registering a single goal.

Tony played 16 seasons in the English Premier League, and despite his lack of goals, he was highly respected for his discipline and solid defense.

In his testimonial match with Everton, after he retired, Hibbert scored a free-kick.

Although he announced his retirement from football in 2016, Hibert returned to football in 2021 to play for amateur football club ES Lousy in France.

3. Alan Brown

He later ventured into coaching and managed a few sides, such as Sunderland, Sheffield Wednesday, and Burnley.

4. Carlos Henrique Raposo

Carlos Henrique Raposo

As he was known, Kaiser was a ‘professional footballer’ active from 1979-1992.

The Brazilian is the most controversial entry on this list because he never scored a goal throughout his career. He was such a poor player that no club featured him in any official match.

Despite his obvious lack of talent, he was able to scam his way into signing for many top Brazilian clubs like Botafogo, Vasco da Gama, Flamengo, etc.

Despite being an infamous footballer, his apparent lack of goals earns him a spot on our list of footballers who never scored a goal.

5. Hugo Villaverde

Hugo Villaverde

The Argentine defender played most of his professional career in his native Argentina.

The rugged center-back featured in over 430 games, most of them for Independiente between 1976-1989. He won the Copa Libertadores with them in 1984.

Hugo also won a few caps for the Argentinian national team in 1979.

Throughout his club and national team career, Villaverde never scored a single goal but was respected and regarded as a competent defender.

He holds the record in Argentina for the player with the most first division matches without scoring a goal.
