From Lionel Messi’s 91 goals haul to the fastest hat-trick in the Premier League, there are several records in football that might never be broken.

Football is typically a game of statistics, and some numbers have been in existence for decades and might remain forever. Take for instance, Lionel Messi scored an incredible 91 goals in 69 games in 2012, setting the record for the most goals scored in a calendar year. But before the Argentine stunned the world with those numbers, Gerd Muller was the record scorer in a single year with 85 goals, a feat he achieved in 1972). The football world actually waited for 40 years for someone to break Muller’s record. So think about that and imagine when Messi’s record will be broken.

In this article, we are going to talk about such amazing records in football that might never be broken in the near future.

1. Fastest Hat-trick In Premier League

Sadio Mane scored the fastest hat-trick in Premier League history back in May 2015. It took the then Southampton man just two minutes and 56 seconds, showcasing his exceptional speed and finishing skills. His performance in the match contributed significantly to Southampton’s 6-1 victory over Aston Villa. And by the way, he was then teammates with Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama.

2. Chelsea Conceding Just 15 Goals In A League Season

Well, no discussion about record in football would be complete without acknowledging Chelsea’s performance during the 2004-05 season. The Blues were then under a young Jose Mourinho who was stunning the world with his tactics. And if you’re probably wondering, they kept 25 clean sheets. Will we ever see such a performance again?

3. Cristiano Ronaldo Winning Individual Honors/Trophies With 2 Different Clubs

Cristiano Ronaldo is widely regarded as one of the greatest footballers of all time. The Portuguese has set numerous records over the course of his career. However, winning the Golden Boot, Ballon d’Or, Champions League and Club World Cup with two different teams is an achievement we might never see again from any other player. Ronaldo is currently playing for Saudi Pro League club Al Nassr.

4. Bas Dost 45 Goals With 45 Touches

Erling Haaland has proven to be the best goalscorer in the world right now. In fact, his magic first touch which always turns into goal is often talked about by football fans. But before Haaland, football’s first touch magician was Bas Dost. The Dutch striker went on an incredible run which saw him score 45 goals with his first touch in a run that dates back to March 2017.

5. Ronaldo Scoring 50+ Goals For Six Consecutive Seasons

Cristiano Ronaldo once again finds himself on our list of football records that might nerve be broken as he is the only person to score over 50 goals for six consecutive seasons. The run started during the 2010-11 season and came to an end during the 2015-16 season. The six seasons saw the Portuguese talisman score 53, 60, 55, 51, 61 and 51 goals respectively.

6. Longest Bicycle Kick Goal

There’s literally nothing that Zlatan Ibrahimovic can’t do on the pitch. He scored looking the other way several times but the strike against England in 2012 is arguably the best on his list. Zlatan sent a looping effort that went over the head of a stranded Joe Hart and beyond a desperate clearance attempt by Shawcross while 32.45 yards or 29.53 metres away from goal. The real legend, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

7. Pele’s 3 World Cups

Yes, Pele actually did that. He won three World Cups with the Brazil national team in 1958, 1962 and 1970. With the ones who have tried breaking his records already retired, we can confidently say that this is one of the records in football that might never be broken.

Honourable Mention 

Lionel Messi’s feat of winning eight Ballon d’Or awards deserves to be among records in football that might never never be broken. The Argentine is arguably the greatest footballer of all time and we are lucky to have seen him play. Messi’s story will be told for decades to come.
