Poland and Bayern Munich hitman, Robert Lewandowski recently netted his 500th goal for club and country, with the striker needing only 730 games to reach the mark. The 32-year-old has always been a consistent goalscorer, but in the past three-four years has established himself as one of the best strikers in the history of the sport.

Here, we breakdown the 500 goals that Lewandowski has netted so far in his career.

1. Poland National Team (2008-Present) - 63 goals

The all-time record goalscorer for Poland with 63 goals, Lewandowski made his senior debut in 2008 at the age of 20. Since then he has gone from strength to strength for his country and continues to score at an astonishing pace for them.

2. Znicz Pruszkow (2006-2008) - 21 goals

Lewandowski helped Znicz Pruszkow achieve promotion in 2006/07 by scoring 15 goals, while he went even better next season when he scored 21 goals to become the top scorer in the Polish second division.

3. Lech Poznan (2008-2010) - 41 goals

Following his impressive performances in the Polish second division, he was snapped up by Lech Poznan and they got a steal as he performed brilliantly for them in front of goal. In his second season with them, Lewandowski led them to the 2009/10 Championship by top scoring with 18 goals and was almost set to join Blackburn Rovers in 2010, only for volcanic ash clouds preventing the move to happen.

4. Borussia Dortmund (2010-2014) - 103 goals

That Borussia Dortmund managed to land Lewandowski for a fee of €4.5million in 2010 is one of the best pieces of transfer business they have done in their history. The striker proved his worth to be 10-times more as he announced himself to the world thanks to his performances.

He scored 103 goals in just 187 appearances for the club, leading them to two Bundesliga titles, one DFB-Pokal and one DFL-Supercup trophy.

5. Bayern Munich (2014-Present) - 272 goals
