Football is among the most popular sports today. With around 3.5 billion football fans around the globe, the game is played in almost every part of the world.
Like other sports, the process of making or breaking the records continue in football also. However, football fans have seen numerous great records that seem to be unbreakable.
Here, we have put together seven greatest football wonders that are likely to remain unbeaten in the future-
The Unbelievable Record Of Winning Five European Cups Consecutively
1955-1960 was the dominance period of Real Madrid in Europe when they won five European Cups in a row. This incredible record lifted Real Madrid to the top of the world’s greatest clubs. For consecutive five years, Madrid enjoyed complete control over European football unlike any other.
The Champions’ League, which is a modern equivalent of the European Cup, is quite difficult to be won today. Forget about five times; teams can’t even manage to win this prestigious trophy twice in a row. Even the world’s powerful teams such as Barcelona, Bayern Munich, etc. have failed to do this.
12 Year Old, Mauricio Baldivieso Is The Youngest Ever Football Player
Baldivieso is a Bolivian midfielder who played for Aurora against FC La Paz when he was only 12. It is quite unlikely that the spectators will see someone playing in the professional football leagues younger than Mauricio Baldivieso.
So, it won’t be wrong to make Sports predictions naming Baldivieso as the world’s youngest football player to debut will not be wrong, and it is unlikely that fact will change soon!
Rogerio Ceni Is The First Goalkeeper To Net The Highest Number Of Goals
All-time greatest Brazilian goalkeeper, Rogerio Mucke Ceni, is quite famous for the staggering number of goals he scored. In his career spanning around 25 years, he scored 131 goals. It may be relatively normal figure for a striker. However, when performed by a goalkeeper, it is an impressive record.
He spent his whole career at Sao Paulo FC and won 20 major titles, including two Libertadores Cup, three Brazilian leagues. Perhaps, there is no goalie anywhere around Ceni who possesses the ability to score as much as he did during his career.
