World record headed goal

While most of us are having difficulties executing a simple header, in an amazing show of strength, A Japanese player managed to head in a goal over a distance of more than half the length of a soccer field.

Japanese club Fagiano Okayama defender Ryujiro Ueda did just that in a Japanese Division Two game on 30th October 2011.

His header, off Yokohama FC goalkeeper Kentaro Seki’s goal kick into Okayama’s half, sent the ball sailing 58m over Seki before bouncing into the net.

“I was focused on getting back to my position,“ said Ueda. “I didn’t notice I scored until after it had gone in.”
