Claudio Pizarro became the fourth-oldest goalscorer in Bundesliga history on Sunday and has now scored a goal in the league in every calendar year since 1999. The records came after he opened his account for the season in Cologne's 3-2 defeat to Stuttgart.

The 39-year-old, who was making only his second start of the season, struck seven minutes in to bring up 192 Bundesliga goals – almost a year after his 191st – and take his place behind Miroslav Votava, Manfred Burgsmüller and Morten Olsen on the list of seasoned scorers in Germany's top flight.

Watch: Pizarro: 20 years, 20 goals!

Aside from his final season with Bayern Munich in 2014/15, the Peruvian – who could still earn a place at this summer's World Cup – has found the back of the net in 18 different seasons, since opening his account for Werder Bremen in the 1999/2000 campaign, scoring at least once in the Bundesliga in each of the past 20 calendar years since 1999.

He also scored twice in the Premier League with Chelsea, meaning he has a total of 194 league goals to his name – and time left this season to reach 200.
