Iranian goalkeeper throws 61m against Korea, record longest in Guinness Book of Records

Iran national football team goalkeeper Alireza Beiranband has been named the world’s farthest footballer.

According to the Guinness World Records website, Beiranband recorded a distance of 61.0026m and was listed in the world record as the player who threw the farthest ball in a soccer game.

Beiranband’s record came from the match against Korea.

On October 11, 2016, Beiranband threw the ball more than 61m during the 2018 Russia World Cup Asian Final Match (Korea 0-1 loss) held at Azadi Stadium in Tehran, Iran.

At that time, the ball thrown by Beiranband from the losing camp fell in the middle of the Korean defense.

Beiranband’s team, Portuguese professional soccer, Boavista, also posted a picture of Beiranband receiving the Guinness World Record certificate on the website on the same day and congratulated him on setting the record.
