Robert Lewandowski Overtakes Raúl As Third-Leading Scorer In UCL History

The present and future of the Champions League combined to lead Bayern Munich over Lazio on Tuesday with Robert Lewandowski scoring his 72nd goal of the competition and 17-year-old Jamal Musiala scoring his first as Bayern prevailed 4-1 in Rome.

You can’t give the world champions anything if you want to last over the course of 180 minutes, but Lazio damned itself as early as the ninth minute after Mateo Musacchio’s suicidal back-pass allowed Lewandowski to collect possession, round Pepe Reina and finish into an empty net.

Every Great World Cup Red Card Record Belongs To Uruguay

The fighting spirit of Uruguay has enabled the country with a population of just 3.5 million (smaller than Connecticut) to collect two World Cup titles and the ninth-most wins in the tournament’s illustrious history. However, this combativeness has occasionally crossed the line, most notably in the collection of the fastest red card in World Cup history and Luis Suárez’s bite of Giorgio Chiellini.

Burnley Is The Antithesis Of Attacking Soccer And May Set A Premier League Record To Prove It

If you're looking to watch some high-scoring, fast-kicking Premier League football, then Burnley probably isn't the side for you.

Led by Sean "The Ginger Mourinho" Dyche, Burnley has averaged almost exactly a goal per game during its previous five seasons in the Premier League, scoring as few as 28 goals during their relegation campaign in 2014-15.

This season though, Burnley's disdain for attacking football is approaching record levels.

Kerr scored the opener as Chelsea eased past Aston Villa 4-0 on Tuesday. The win moved the Blues’ unbeaten streak in FA Women’s Super League action to 32, setting a new record and breaking a tie with Manchester City.

Could Carli Lloyd Catch Kristine Lilly For The Most Unattainable Record In Soccer?

With two more appearances to start 2021, Carli Lloyd reached 296 caps for the U.S. women’s national team, becoming the most-capped active player. Looking spry as ever, the 2015 Women’s World Cup Golden Ball winner is showing no signs of slowing down. The question is, how much longer will she keep playing? And could she possibly challenge Kristine Lilly’s record for most international appearances in soccer history?

From Alcorcón To Pordenone: The Biggest Cup Upsets In Footballing History

Soccer is one of the very few sports that boasts competitions where small, local sides are able to face off against the best teams in the country. These matchups capture the imagination while providing a sense of hope and magic to a small group of supporters.

Domestic cups have long provided smaller clubs with the opportunity to prove their mettle by facing nationally recognized sides, and while major upsets are rare, just the slightest hope of an improbable win is enough to cause local pandemonium and stir significant interest among neutral supporters.

The Longest Goals Of All Time

The best goals are the goals that no one sees coming. The long goals that come out of nowhere and no one can predict. All 14 of these goals, the longest goals in football history, fall into this category.

Some of these goals were scored by the goalkeepers, some of these goals were scored by the field players, and all of these goals were scored from inside their own half. Incredible. The longest goal of them all – Tom King's world record goal – was scored from 105 yards out, the equivalent of kicking a ball the entire length of an American football field and then some.

The Players With The Most Career Goals In Soccer History

This list for the players with the most career goals in the history of soccer stretches from players who played in the early 1900s to the present day. Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi score at an unprecedented rate in today’s game, but there are those from history whose rate of scoring was even more impressive.

The Guinness World Record for the most goals scored in a specified period is 1,281 by the Brazilian great Pele, born Edson Arantes do Nascimento.
