Records are meant to be broken. It is a famous saying, but whoever said it, has perhaps not been privy to these records.
This is not possible to break the record
Celtic won the European Cup in 1967 with a team consisting of players born and raised in the vicinity of the stadium. Dubbed the Lisbon lions, they won the European Cup after beating Internazionale 2-1 in the final at Estadio Nacional. It was a 15-man squad, 14 of whom were born within 10 miles of Celtic Park and one born within 20 miles.
The victory was compounded by the style in which they dominated the tournament. The Lions were known to be an expansive team, able to play with great alacrity. This victory will go down in history as the most complete and convincing, having achieved the intended purpose of association football – to groom local talent and increase the stature of the locality.
This incredible achievement will never be replicated, with globalisation taking its effect on football and fans' increasing fervour for expensive signings. It is a record is assured of its standing in history.
