10 hardest records to break in football

The most popular sport in the world is football. It is also the sport with the highest amount of money in circulation. Due to this, in some cases, football has a value beyond a game. The World Cup final which was held recently became the most watched sports match in the world.

Due to this, the players who are engaged in the football game naturally have a lot of value. Football fans give a lot of recognition to the records set by those players. Due to this, the players who set the most difficult records to break in the game of football have more value.

Most goals in a single World Cup

France’s Kylian Mbappé, who won the golden boot award for scoring the most goals in the recently concluded 2022 World Cup, scored 8 goals. Among his first World Cups in the 21st century, Brazil’s Ronaldo scored 8 goals in the 2002 tournament. At other times in the 21st century, players who won the golden boot did not score as many goals.

In 1958, the French player Just Fontaine, who played in the World Cup, scored 13 goals in 6 matches. Even after 64 years, no player managed to break that record or come close to it. As the maximum number of matches a player gets in a football World Cup match is 7 matches, there is very little chance of breaking this record in the future.

The goalkeeper who scored 131 goals

Normally in football, a goalkeeper is rarely out of bounds. When checking the history, it is also possible to see the cases where the net keepers scored goals in such cases. But the number of goals scored by a goalkeeper in football is very low.

Brazil’s Rogerio Ceni, who played professional football from 1990 to 2015, managed to score 131 goals in his career. He has also played 17 matches for the Brazilian national team. Ceni was also a member of the Brazil team that won the 2002 FIFA World Cup. He represented Sao Paulo Sports Club from 1993 to 2015 and was known as a player who can take skillful penalty kicks and free kicks. It is correct to say that he managed to score so many goals due to this.

Finishing the English Premier League unbeaten

Although there are many debates at present, England’s Premier League is considered to be the number 1 football league in the world. The world’s best players, the world’s No. 1 coaches, etc. are participating in this tournament. Due to this, it is an extremely difficult challenge for any team to finish the Premier League season undefeated.

In the 2003/04 Premier League season, Arsenal played 38 matches, winning 26 and drawing 12. Accordingly, Arsenal did not lose a single match in the Premier League during the 2003/04 season. Even after 20 years, no other team has won the Premier League title undefeated.

91 goals a year!

In 1972, Gerd Müller, who represented Bayern Munich and Germany, scored 85 goals in that calendar year. That record was extremely difficult to break and remained unbroken for almost 40 years. In the year 2012, Lionel Messi managed to take the most difficult football record to break even further.

In 2012, Lionel Messi, who showed a very successful match pattern, scored 91 goals. Among these 91 goals, he scored 79 goals for Barcelona and 12 goals for Argentina. It has been more than 10 years since Messi set the record of 91 goals. Still nothing came close to breaking this record.

5 goals in 9 minutes

During a 20151/16 German football league match between Bayern Munich and Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga, a wonderful incident was reported. At the end of the first half of the game, Wolfsburg was leading 1-0. Robert Lewandowski came on as a substitute in the second half of the match. What followed was an unimaginable event.

Lewandowski scored the first goal in the 51st minute for Bayern, who were chasing the goal ahead of Wolfsburg. He did not stop there and managed to score 4 more goals in the 52nd, 55th, 57th and 60th minutes respectively. In total, Robert Lewandowski scored 5 goals in 9 minutes. This record is called a once-in-a-lifetime record for the entire game.

3 World Cups

The most unique crown in football is the Football World Cup. Winning the World Cup is a dream of any football player. In this way, a player who has won not one but 3 football world cups can be seen in the history check. His name is none other than Pele, the player who surprised an era in the football world.

Playing for Brazil, Pele helped win the World Cup in 1958, 1962 and 1970. He is also the only player who entered the records by winning 3 World Cup tournaments. Although 52 years have passed since Pele set this record, it has not yet been broken.

International match with the most goals

Soccer is not usually a game where a lot of goals are scored. There are not many opportunities to score 4 or more goals in football. However, an international football match that broke all these records was recorded in 2002. Australia scored a 31-0 victory in the World Cup qualifier between Australia and American Samoa.

This match, which was won by 31-0 goals, became the history of the international football match with the highest number of goals. Australian player Archie Thompson scored 13 goals in that match. It is also the record for most goals scored by a player in an international football match. Those 13 goals are among the most difficult records to break in football.

17 goals in a single Champions League tournament

The Champions League is the strongest club competition in the world. Cristiano Ronaldo scored 17 goals in the 2013/14 Champions League. Representing the Real Madrid football club. It is the record for most goals scored by a player in a single tournament in Champions League history.

He also holds the record for most goals in Champions League history. Cristiano Ronaldo also holds the record for scoring the most goals in the knockout stages of the tournament with 67 goals. He has 5 Champions League titles. Due to these reports, he is nicknamed “Mr Champions League” .

7 Ballon d’Or Awards

The Ballon d’Or award is given to the best football player of the year. It organizes a French football league. Lionel Messi of Argentina holds the record of the player who has won the award the most times. He won this award 7 times. Cristiano Ronaldo, who is behind him, has won it 5 times.

Lionel Messi also won 6 European Golden Shoes awarded to the player who scored the most goals in European sports clubs. He won the best player award 7 times in international football tournaments (including the Olympics and the Under-20 World Cup) and no other player has been able to come close to Messi’s achievements. It is an extremely difficult set of records to break in the future.

Fastest Premier League hat trick

As mentioned earlier in the article, the most competitive football league currently operating in the world is the English Premier League. It is not easy to score three goals there. Senegal’s Sadio Mane scored a hat-trick in 2 minutes and 56 seconds in the 2015/16 Premier League while playing for Southampton. It holds the record for the fastest hat-trick in the Premier League.

However, the record for the fastest hat-trick in the world is held by Alex Torr of Sheffield Sunday League. He set this record in 2013 by scoring a hat-trick in 70 seconds. Like Mane’s record, the record of scoring three goals in 70 seconds is also among the most difficult football records to break.
