Man Utd sub sets world record – most goals scored from halfway line

Most goals scored from the halfway line in 60 seconds… that’s the record held by Manchester United’s second choice goalkeeper, Sergio Romero.

His pinpoint accuracy has earned him a world record after scoring 20 minutes in just a minute.

The previous record was 5 goals.

Phil Jones and Ander Herrera both had a go but it was the goalkeeper who did best.

Herrera was surprised by the challenge’s difficulty: “I didn’t expect [it] was going to be that tough.”

Not too shabby for a backup goalie, eh?

Romero, however, is good enough to be first choice at most clubs. There’s not a goalkeeper in the world who would be starting ahead of David de Gea at United, which begs the question: how does Dave’s distribution compare to Romero’s?

Perhaps a challenge for another day.
