Ragnar Klavan’s last-minute winner for Liverpool against Burnley was the first time an Estonian had scored in the Premier League.
It also meant that 95 different nationalities had scored in England’s top division.
Which got us thinking, which countries have scored the most Premier League goals when you take English players out of the equation?
Some of the results were very surprising.
We delved into the statistical archive to get the lowdown on where in the world all the Premier League goals come from.
England lead the way of course, with English players netting 10,826 goals to date.
France are second with 1,477 but once you get past the home nations and Holland making up the top six, it gets very interesting.
There have been more goals from Norwegian players than those from Argentina, Italy, Brazil and Germany.
That is an amazing statistic seeing as the only Norwegians that we can think of are Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer and Morten Gamst Pedersen.
John Arne Riise gets an honourable mention, but the Scandinavian country has produced a whopping 510 Premier League goals.
Argentina and Italy have scored a paltry 420 and 414 respectively.
But, considering Argentina’s Premier League players include elite strikers like Sergio Aguero, Carlos Tevez and Hernan Crespo it’s almost inconceivable that they are below both Norway and Nigeria in the charts.
Italy’s best have traditionally preferred hotter climes than that of London or Manchester but Premier League fans have still cheered on Gianfranco Zola, Paolo Di Canio… and Fabio Borini.
Out of the major nations Germany are bottom with 268 goals in English football since 1992.
The bulk of those goals came from midfielders such as Dietmar Hamann, Thomas Hitzlesperger and Michael Ballack.
