Meet Uruguay's Sebastian Abreu, The World's Most Travelled Footballer

There are footballers who are well-known for playing in many different clubs, as opposed to those who play for only a few clubs. The likes of Darren Bent, Rivaldo and Nicolas Anelka all played for over ten different clubs in their career. But then no one compares to Uruguay's Sebastian Abreu, who played for 31 different clubs in 11 different countries.

As expected, Abreu holds the record for the most clubs played for by a single player, as no one else comes close. The Uruguayan retired from professional football earlier this month, but his record is likely to be unmatched for a very long time.

Abreu played as a striker and at international level, he made 70 appearances for Uruguay and scored 26 goals. He scored the winning penalty against Ghana in that controversial quarterfinal encounter at the 2010 World Cup.

Do you think any player will ever break Abreu's record of playing for 31 different clubs? That seems most unlikely. What are you thoughts?
