The biggest attraction in the World Cup 2018 will be Argentine legendary Lionel Messi who can become the highest scorer in this tournament. The record for most goals in the World Cup as captain is the name of the Argentine great player and former Messi Diego Maradona, who has scored six goals in the World Cup, leading the national team. Messi will have a great chance to make this record his name in Russia.
With the introduction of football’s medal in Russia from June 14, the start of the new record will also begin. During the FIFA World Cup to be held at 12 venues in 11 cities, many records will be at stake. Large stars like Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Lionel Messi, and Suarez are participating in this mahogany, but the biggest attraction is Argentina’s legendary Lionel Messi, who can become the highest scorer in the World Cup.
The record for most goals in the World Cup as captain is the name of the Argentine great player and former Messi Diego Maradona, who has scored six goals in the World Cup, leading the national team. Messi will have a great chance to make this record his name in Russia.
On his name, there are five goals in the World Cup, four of which he did in 2014 as captain in Brazil. If Messi makes two more goals in Russia, then Maradona will equalize, on the other hand, he will break this record with three goals. Germany’s star Thomas Müller will be aiming to become the first player to score five or more goals in three World Cups. Besides Müller, Germany’s compatriot Miroslav Klose and Teofilo Kubilas of Peru have managed to score five or more goals in more than one World Cup.
Germany’s Klose is the highest goalscorer in the World Cup with 16 goals, and Muller is six goals behind them. Egyptian goalkeeper and captain Esam Al-Haddi, if the World Cup clashes in Russia, they will become the oldest player to play in this tournament.
Haidari’s age is 45 years and five months, while the previous record was made in 2014 Brazilian Ferid Mondragon of Columbia, who had come to represent his country at the age of 43 years and three days. In addition to the older players in the World Cup, the older coaches are also guiding their teams and if Uruguay and Portugal teams are face-to-face in the pre-quarterfinals, their coaches respectively, Oscar Tabaraj and Fernando Santos, will build.
The combined age of these two coaches will be 135 years and three months, and it will break the record of 133 years and nine months, which was created by Otto Rehagel of Greece and Lars Lagerback of Nigeria in 2010 in South Africa.
Rafa Markwege is also included in the list of the oldest players in the current tournament and he is also close to registering his name in history. If Markov gets the chance to play in Russia then he will become the only third player in the World Cup to become the second player in Mexico. So far, Mexico’s Antonio Carabal and Lothar Matthaus from Germany have been able to achieve this feat. Italy’s Gianluigi Buffon was also part of the team in five World Cups, but he did not get a chance to play in the World Cup in France in 1998. Markov’s eyes will be on another record, along with Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Australia’s Tim Cahill for the record. If all three of them make the rounds in 2018, then they will be included in the four World Cup goalscorers.
Earlier, Germany’s Yuve Sealer and Klose and Brazilian Pele have been able to achieve this feat. So far Mario is alive and Franz Beckenbauer has been successful in winning the World Cup as both player and coach, but if the French team is successful in winning the title in Russia, then the names of Didier Deschamps will also be included in this list. In 1998, France won the title at the head of Deschamps.
