On June 14, with the opening of the football mascara in Russia, a new record will start in the World Cup and the breakdown of old records will start.
Many records will be at stake during the World Cup in 12 cities of Russia, and the biggest attraction among them is Argentina’s legendary Lionel Messi, who can become the highest scorer in the World Cup.
Record of the highest goal 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 golden opportunity to break this record in Russia. In his name, there are five goals in the World Cup, four of which he made in the Brazilian Cup in 2014. If this legendary player makes two more goals in Russia then Maradona will equalize, with three goals he will break this record.
Germany’s star Thomas Muller will aim 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. Close is the most goalscorer in the World Cup with 16 goals, and Mural is six goals behind them.
If Egyptian goalkeeper and captain Essam Al-Hudari enter the World Cup in Russia, he will become the oldest player to play in the World Cup. 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 older players in the World Cup, old coaches are also guiding their teams and if the Uruguay and Portugal teams face a face-to-face in the pre-quarterfinals, then their coaches respectively, Oscar Tabarez 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 only the third and third player of the world to play in the five World Cups. 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 in France in 1998, he did not get the chance to play.
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 goals 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 has been successful and Franz Beckenbauer has been successful in winning the World Cup as both player and coach, but if France succeeds 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.
