  • Telmo Zarraonandia Montoya, professionally known as Zarra, was a Spanish Basque football forward. The majority of his career was spent at Athletic Bilbao from 1940 to 1955, for whom he is the second highest top scorer in competitive matches with 251 goals behind Lionel Messi. Signing with Athletic after playing one season for Erandio, he became a prolific goalscorer for Athletic in his 15 seasons at the club, winning The Pichichi Trophy for highest scorer in the league on six occasions. Until Lionel Messi surpassed him on November 22, 2014, Zarra had scored more league goals than any other player in Spanish football history, and his 81 goals in the Copa del Rey remain a record. He previously shared the record for most goals scored in a season: 38 times in 1950–51, beaten in the 2010–11 La Liga season by Cristiano Ronaldo with 40 and the 2011–12 La Liga season by Lionel Messi with 50 goals. Despite his goalscoring records, he only played for Spain twenty times. Even so, he still managed to score 20 goals, including four in one historic match when Spain beat Switzerland 6–3 on 18 February 1951.
