There are a number of records in the world of football that are unlikely to ever be beaten. Indeed, some of the records to have been set in the past appear rather unbelievable whilst others can be considered as being a little more realistic and believable.
The guys at GIVEMESPORT have found the best records to exist at the moment, which consist of the following:
13 goals scored in a World Cup
Gerd Muller came close to surpassing the current record of 13 goals in a FIFA World Cup by Just Fontaine in 1958 when he netted 10, however no-one has ever managed to get close and is unlikely to do so.
Headed goal from 58.13m away
Jone Samuelsen managed to score a header from inside his own half whilst playing for ODD Greenland in Norway back in 2011. The midfielder managed to head the ball from a distance of 58.13m and managed to find the back of the net after the Tromso goalkeeper had gone up for the corner.
Referee handed out red cards as if they were going out of fashion
A fifth-tier match between Claypole and Victoriano Arenas in Argentina a decade ago saw the referee hand out 36 red cards. A mass brawl between players, managers, coaches and fans get involved, thus leaving referee Damian Rubino no choice.
12-year-old becomes youngest footballer to play in a professional match
Remember the name, Mauricio Baldivieso! The 12-year-old made his professional debut for Aurora in 2009. It helps when your dad is the manager, though. Perhaps he had a bet on with an online casino such as these listed here.
46 red cards in a career
Colombian Gerardo Bedoya managed to receive a total of 46 red cards during his playing career, which consisted of featuring (sporadically, we’d guess) for Boca Juniors and Atletico Nacional, as well as his national side. Sergio Ramos, eat your heart out!
Almost 200,000 in attendance
1950 FIFA World Cup match between Brazil and Argentina saw 199,854 fans cram into the Marcana; a record that will likely never be beaten.
Goalkeeper who can keep out goals but also score them
Rogerio Ceni might be a familiar name for many as the Brazilian was legendary for his ability to score goals. The ‘keeper managed to score 131 times in his career, albeit mainly from free-kicks and penalties.
Over 137mph shot recorded
Sporting Lisbon’s Ronny took a free-kick that was recorded at being over 137 miles per hour (221kph). Wonder whether he got more than three points for that?
104 matches unbeaten
Steaua Bucharest put Arsenal’s invincible to shame with their 104 matches unbeaten. Admittedly, it came back in the 80s but nonetheless, still incredibly impressive.
73-year-old is the oldest active player
Sometimes giving up the game we love can be hard, just ask goalkeeper Isaak Hayik. The Israeli shot-stopper played a full competitive match for Maccabi Ironi Or Yehuda at the young age of 73 years and 95 days.
