Football Records That May Never Be Broken

Football records can be set and broken by anyone, provided the individual is capable of doing so. But there are some football records that seem impossible to break. Literally, no goalkeeper seems capable of scoring up to 100 goals in his career. Let us look at records that might not be broken by anyone in time to come.


1. Messi's 33 goal record:

During the 2012/2013 La Liga season, Lionel Messi scored 33 goals in 21 consecutive games for Barcelona. The closest anyone got to this record was Gerd Muller, who scored in 16 consecutive games for Bayern Munich.

2. Lewandowski's 5 goal record:

On September 22, 2015, Bayern Munich were losing 1-0 to Wolfsburg when Robert Lewandowski came on as a substitute in the second half. He scored a hat trick in four minutes before he went on to register two more goals five minutes later. He became the first substitute ever to score five goals in the Bundesliga. His goals left the players of Wolfsburg completely rattled. Till today, no footballer has broken that record.

3. Alex Torr's hat trick record:

During a match between Rawson Springs and Winn Gardens in 2013, Alex Torr scored 4 goals as his side, Rawson Springs won 7-1. Three out of his four goals were scored between the 11th and 13th minutes of the game, exactly 70 seconds.

4. Messi's 91 goal record:

In 2012, Lionel Messi scored 91 goals in a single year, breaking Gerd Muller's record of 85 goals. 79 of those goals were for Barcelona(59 in La Liga, 13 in the Champions League, 5 in Copa Del Rey and 2 in the Spanish Super Cup), while 12 were for Argentina. If we add his 24 assists in that year, we can say that Lionel Messi was directly involved in 115 goals in a calendar year, unbelievable!

5. Champions League trophies:

Real Madrid, under Zinedine Zidane's management won the Champions League trophy three times in a row(2016-2018). In 2016, they beat Athletico Madrid in penalties to lift the cup. In 2017, Real Madrid beat Juventus 4-1 to lift the Champions League trophy. And in 2018, Real Madrid defeated Liverpool to lift the trophy.

6. Most goals by a goal keeper:

Rogerio Ceni, from Brazil remains the highest goal scoring goalkeeper in football history. Through out his career, he registered a total of 123 goals, 60 of them were from free kicks while the rest were from penalties. The closest anyone got to this record was Jose Luiz Chilavert, who scored 62 goals through out his career.

7. Ronaldo's international goal record:

Till date, Ronaldo remains the footballer with the highest international goals in football history. Although he has not retired, he has a record of 111 international goals.
