FIFA World Cup 2018: A Look at Interesting Records that May Be Broken this Year in Russia

Tags: FIFA World Cup 2018.
Posted on Thursday, June 14, 2018 by "T".

The 2018 FIFA World Cup is scheduled from June 14 to July 15 in Russia, and once again the world will be closely tuned in to see how the highly exciting football tournaments will turn out.

Many interesting records will be up for the better during the FIFA World Cup 2018.

To get your complete fix on the FIFA World Cup's All Time Statistics, visit their official website.

Just like in the previous editions, the FIFA World Cup 2018 edition shall bear witness to the fall of several records. While most of the attention is centered on Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, there are some other records that can potentially be broken this year. The finicky weather conditions in Russia makes the World Cup this time to be quite unique and challenging.

According to FIFA.com, there will be ten records that could fall in Russia.
Let's check out some of the records that may possibly be broken in the 21st edition of the FIFA World Cup.

Most goals scored
Thomas Müller, Germany's versatile player who usually plays as a midfielder or forward, could potentially become the highest goalscorer in World Cup history, aiming for the record of scoring 5 goals in three World Cups. The 28-year-old Müller, fellow German Miroslav Klose, and Peruvian Teofilo Cubillas are the only players who were able to score over four times in multiple editions of the World Cup. At the moment, Klose holds the record for most World Cup goals (which is 16), and Müller is just six shy.

Oldest player ever to play in a World Cup
Essam El-Hadary, Egypt's goalkeeper (age 45 years and 5 months) is set to replace Colombian keeper Faryd Mondragon (age 43 years and 3 days) as the oldest player ever to play in a World Cup, that is, if he plays in Russia.

Oldest combined age for two coaches in a World Cup
Otto Rehhagel of Greece and Lars Lagerback of Nigeria are holders of the current record for the oldest combined age for two coaches in a World Cup, which is 133 years and 9 months, noted in South Africa 2010. If Fernando Santos of Portugal and Oscar Tabarez of Uruguay meet in the round of 16, they will shatter that current record as their combined age would be 135 years and 3 months.

Most wins in penalty shootouts
The record for most wins in penalty shootouts is currently shared by Argentina and Germany, with four each. Germany had 4 wins out of 4 shootouts, whereas Argentina have participated in the most number of shootouts, and ironically while they were aiming for number five, their only loss came at the hands of Germany in 2006.

Team that remains unbeaten in most World Cup matches
Brazil is the record holder of remaining unbeaten in 13 World Cup matches, but this may be most likely broken this year by Germany. The last loss of the team led by Joachim Low was to Spain back in the South Africa 2010 semi-finals, and they will begin the Russia World Cup flaunting an eight-match unbeaten streak.

Player to be featured in 5 World Cups
If he makes an appearance in Russia, Rafa Marquez of Mexico shall be the third man and the second Mexican to feature in 5 World Cups. German legend Lothar Matthaus and Mexico's Antonio Carbajal achieved this feat, whilst Gigi Buffon went to five World Cups but did not make an appearance at France 1998.

Most goals scored as captain in the World Cup
Diego Maradona has 6 goals scored for Argentina as captain in the World Cup. Argentina captain Lionel Messi could probably surpass his former national coach Maradona, but he has to score 3 more to pull that off.

Person to have won the World Cup as player and coach
Currently, Mario Zagallo and Franz Beckenbauer are the only two persons who have won the World Cup as a player and a coach. If Didier Deschamps leads France to World Cup victory, he then will become the third man to have won the trophy both as a player and as a coach. Deschamps is a former defensive midfielder who led his team to World Cup glory back in 1998.

Most wins as manager
One of the first recipients of the FIFA Order of Merit in 1984, West Germany Helmut Schon currently holds the title for coaching the most matches (25) and winning most of them (16). This record may be broken by present Germany coach Joachim Low, who is 7 wins short of Schon's record 16 victories at the World Cup finals, which means Low needs to win all 7 games (every single game this summer) if Germany were to take the title.

First to become a two-time winner of the Golden Ball
First introduced in the 1982 World Cup, the Golden Ball award is something that no player has won twice so far, let alone consecutively. Since its introduction, there have been as many as 9 players predicted to win the coveted individual honor, including legends like Maradona, Zidane, Maradona; but even these football legends are still unable to win the Golden Ball twice. Lionel Messi was awarded the Golden Ball during the Brazil 2014 World Cup. Also, note that there is no other player participating in the 2018 World Cup who has won the Golden Ball previously. Therefore, there is a great chance for Messi to set another record this year in Russia by becoming the first player ever to win the World Cup Golden Ball twice/consecutively.

Of course, there are many other awesome records that might be broken in the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia. If you know some of them not included in this list, feel free to share with us in the comments below!

 dule-vu6/18/2018 3:15:46 PM GMT
penalty was clear for ronaldo and portugal!he just used opportunity with leg from spanish player and he didnt cheat anything!I know that he know to do lot of times this for club,but in this situation everything was clear!
 CALICUL6/18/2018 6:29:16 PM GMT
Yeah, some players are redoubtable cheaters and cristiano ronaldo is one of them. I'm glad because i did not bet on Germany but also on brazil. I just did it here in BRM and i was wrong. Now i expect other matches to see what surprises we see and anothers records.
 dule-vu6/19/2018 6:31:12 PM GMT
today we have some results that you maybe didnt expect,but thats football!didnt expect that japan will win and will have three points in pocket and then senegal big win with poland,that make whole new situation in that group!probably we will have lot of strange results till end!
 pochui6/19/2018 8:18:15 PM GMT
yeah I have to agree with dule-vu, there have been some quite unexpected results flying in lately and to be honest almost none of the big favorites really proven that they are heads and shoulders better than their opponents, probably Belgium cruised past with ease but still weren't looking very sharp
 shokaku6/20/2018 6:56:52 AM GMT
Had bet on Colombia-Japan and Poland-Senegal 2:1 each. Big Smile
But for the wrong teams. Aww crap!
Both Colombias and Poland kicked out themselfes. Playing with only 10 men for most of the games will not work at that level, and the goals the Poles let it. oh my. Shock
 pajalnick6/20/2018 11:14:52 AM GMT
yesterday, the Russian team was in the playoff .... I totally unreasonably feared the national team of Egypt ..... the Russian team certainly was stronger in everything .... sadly only one that in the playoff russia gets either to Spain or to Portugal .... I saw their game, the national team of Russia losing
 shokaku6/20/2018 4:04:14 PM GMT
Against Spain Russia would have enormous problems, but Portugal is extremely dependent on Ronaldo. The other players are only average at the moment. So there would be a reasonable chance to make the next round.
 dule-vu6/20/2018 7:54:43 PM GMT
another record for ronaldo,another goal for him!who know where is end for him!its like they only have him,but who ask that,when they collect points!
we can expect more records in next days,probably messi will score some goal,some players to beat own records with number of plays and so on!
 dule-vu6/23/2018 11:56:24 AM GMT
we have one record yesterday,that nobody asked for VAR on serbia-albania game!I am not angry or anything,because I dont watch much serbia national team in football,only red star football club!they disappointed me many years ago and I stopped to watch them and to lose my nervs!now I dont care!
if this is basketball,water pool,volleyball,then I would watch,but this "girls" no!
 pajalnick6/23/2018 1:35:50 PM GMT
of course it is preferable to play against Portugal for the Russian team .... if Ronaldo is closed, then there are some small chances ... but unfortunately the results in the group with Portugal will be later and therefore it is unclear how to play with Uruguay .... although of course you need to play on win
 CALICUL6/23/2018 7:58:38 PM GMT
we wait first to end the matches in the group and then we will make calculations. There were some surprises in this world championship but will also be in the next matches. I'm curious what Poland will do tomorrow and japan with Senegal. I will not bet on them, are risky mathes.
 dule-vu6/25/2018 5:54:25 PM GMT
as I mentioned at first post in this thread,that I am sure that he will play for at least few minutes,to make a record!egypt didnt have chance to go in next round and thats why he was on goal from start of game!
Essam El-Hadary is from today oldest player who played some game at world cup!he have 45 years and 161 day!besides this,he even save penalty in first half,but after that he got goal from another penalty!
 CALICUL6/25/2018 8:19:16 PM GMT
Luis Suarez scored in the match against Russia a historic goal for him and for his country. This goal ( scored in the 10th minute of the match ) turned him into the Uruguayan footballer with the most official goals scored throughout his career ( both nationally and club teams ). Very nice for Suarez.
 Nightkid6/27/2018 1:18:00 PM GMT
If as I read before of many, the records or records are to break them as measures that we advance every time there are better players in all parts of the world ... this year I hope the best for my team (Argentina) and that despite suffering so much to be able to arrive at eighth we have the luck this year to win that already it takes while escaping that dram hahaha

I wish you all the best: D
 shokaku6/27/2018 4:04:55 PM GMT
Third time in a row the reigning champion chrashes out in the group stages of the next World Cup 4 years later. After Italy 2010 and Spain 2014, now Germany is out in 2018. No tournament for old men.
 CALICUL6/27/2018 8:21:45 PM GMT
Unfortunately, you were right about Germany. I really did not expect to play so poorly in this world cup. I do not know what's going on but you need a new coach in my opinion. Joachim Löw this ,,greenhorn'' ( mucilaginous ) he took Germany here but 1 victory and 2 loses is a big disappointment.
 shokaku6/27/2018 8:55:07 PM GMT
I didn't expect to much of them this year, but even i am surprised by the poor play. Everything was done just to slowly, and there was no real game plan. Neither for the offensive, nor for the defense. Unexplainable for a team that started with 8 players from 2014 in the first match.
 pajalnick6/27/2018 9:28:10 PM GMT
today there was a terrible event in the team of the German team \ ... a very terrible event ... but the magic is working ... the champions do not leave the band ... and it again happened ... I really sympathize with the German team but the result on the scoreboard and this one the result is sad for the Germans

 Nightkid6/28/2018 3:59:25 PM GMT
The truth very surprised that many good teams allan stayed out (especially the team from Germany) but many happened to weigh or suffer much as I spend with my country (I am from Argentina) and after reaching the second round and I am seeing it difficult against the French haha but I think we can win and see if this year we are given the power to win Cool Cool Cool
 dule-vu6/28/2018 4:09:43 PM GMT
dont know is it record or it happend sometimes already,but from 5 african team,nobody didnt pass group this year!last team,who had best chance for it senegal lost game and because of fifa fair play,1 yellow cards less,japan is in next stage!what a sick way to go home!
 CALICUL6/28/2018 8:22:11 PM GMT
It seems that Germany is in a bad period and can return in the future because it has potential. I would not want France, Mexic, Portugal or Brasil to win this world cup. I think Colombia will have a hard game with Senegal. This world cup has two surprises which have been eliminated Germany and Poland. The last surprise in the groups which will be eliminated could be Colombia.
 pajalnick6/28/2018 9:33:52 PM GMT
Today was a wonderful match fra-aia-belgt .. I certainly bet on the win of Belgium ... everything was clear .. one little .... I bet on 2 = 1 and in the game 1-0 ... sad that I won in the BRM. but I won in other sites ... where I was betting on the win of Belgium ... that's the story I'm kids
 CALICUL6/29/2018 8:23:22 PM GMT
I bet 2-2 at the match England with Belgium but i was not inspired in more matches. There are a few known mobsters who stay well in the top 30 but they have more to predict until the world cup ends. I'm afraid that Portugal will win this world cup because i do not want that.

it seems to me that you are mistaken in calling the champions Portugal ... of course the game at Cristiano is outstanding ... he is the best football player and wizard ..... but in this team he is such one .... and it seems to me that in the game with Uruguay it will not be easy .... I think so
 CALICUL6/30/2018 8:23:56 PM GMT
Pajalnick my friend you misunderstood. I do not want Portugal to win the European Championship. I know he has great chances to win this world championship but i want someone else to win. My favorites was Germany and Spain but one has already been eliminated. Honestly to be if Portugal passes Uruguay has great chances to reach in the final and win. I do not want this.

well ... your desire came true ... the team of Portugal flew out of the tournament as well as the team of Argentina ... Messi and Ronaldo will not meet at the world championships probably never .... such an interesting story .... France of course there is a super-player of 19 years ... superstar
 LIKEIT277/1/2018 7:24:21 AM GMT
Its a exciting world cup,...only one time 0-0,...
over 100 goals are scored,...more then 20 goals after 90 Minutes Shock
Iff Brazil not going to play better,...i really think France have a good chance after the performance off yesterday Worship
 CALICUL7/1/2018 8:25:23 PM GMT
I am very happy that Portugal has been eliminated of this world cup edition. Argentina played well in the match against France but if Lionel Messi was in shape, it was better for them. This has not happened. It would have been nice for Cristiano Ronaldo to cry last night to laugh Internet users by him. Cool
 pajalnick7/1/2018 9:58:31 PM GMT
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ............. this is a fantasy ..... I'm certainly a patriot and root for collecting my country, but I did not expect that we will beat Spain ..... of course, mostly the Russian team played in defense but still Spain is going home and we are playing in the quarterfinal against Croatia Worship Worship Worship

before worldcup the russian lost nearly every single game - i think 20 in a row - even vs the cheapest opponents. now they at 1/4 final.

whats the secret? overdose on steroids or did putin buy the games? Big Smile

never expected them to win a single game, not even with homeadvantage. i was so wrong... congratulation comrade Thumbs Up

 CALICUL7/3/2018 8:36:39 PM GMT
Russia managed a nice match with Spain. Now has a match with Croatia and has 45% chances from my point of view to win. If he does not catch a poor day can qualify in the semifinals. Now everything depends on them and their courage. They play in his home and surprise surprise... Smile
 shokaku7/3/2018 9:10:01 PM GMT
England wins a penalty shout out. Shock
This World Cup really turns things on their heads. If this trend will continue, finally the sky will fall down on us.

Reminds a bit of 2002 where also a lot of strange things happend.

it's hard to say what will be .... of course the group games in Croatia were very impressive .. and when they beat Argentina 3-0 they looked very cool ... but here's the game in 1e8 with Denmark I was not impressed ... so all depends on the tactics of our coach for the match ... of course I would like to pass in 1/2 Worship
 shokaku7/4/2018 7:30:14 PM GMT
Denmark managed to draw the Croatian players in a lot of duells in midfield, completely disrupting the build up of play. So the ball rarely reached the zones before the goal, and the game dragged on without chances to score a goal.
 LIKEIT277/5/2018 10:14:13 AM GMT
there arelots off records broken already,..
for xample most goals after 90 minutes,..
one funny record is a player from russia,..
who made a own goal ,that he is the oldest guy that ever made a own goal at world cup Big Smile
 CALICUL7/5/2018 9:04:22 PM GMT
Brazilian Mario Zagallo and German Franz Beckenbauer are the only persons who won the World Cup, both as players and as coaches. The French coach Didier Deschamps, could become the third, if he succeeds with France in Russia. Has a good team and maybe will be lucky.
 pajalnick7/5/2018 10:03:08 PM GMT
hmmm ... I also bet on winning the French .... but in Uruguay there is Suarez and a new French megastar with fast feet Uruguayans can tightly close .... so the result is pretty unpredictable ... the match I hope it will be interesting and there will be many goals .... the quarter finals are very interesting
 CALICUL7/6/2018 9:05:13 PM GMT
In the competition have remained 6 teams and tomorrow 4 but all teams are from Europe. I said at the beginning of this world championship like European team will win this ediion of World Cup. I knew the South Americans did not have good teams in this moment but my favorites Germany or Spain they also played poor football. Anyway, i would like this world cup to be won by a team in Premiere.
 pajalnick7/6/2018 9:58:57 PM GMT
I was sure that France will beat Uruguay ... about Belgium, I wrote in another post that Belgium will win on penalties .... but in the end, belgium could win in the regular time .... in Belgium, just cosmic counterattacks .... that in a match with Japan that in a match with Brazil .... maybe Belgium will beat France Confused
 CALICUL7/7/2018 9:06:17 PM GMT
I bet here in the bankrollmob on Belgium's victory in the match with Brazil 3-2. Uruguay - France i bet 1-2 final score. I knew the South Americans they have no big chances because they do not have big teams in this moment. I bet on Sweden today and on Croatia because the latter team are favorites with Rusia and they have better players.
 pajalnick7/7/2018 10:08:58 PM GMT
today is a sad day ... the national team of Russia left the world's peace club .... it was a very interesting and tense match ... and the game of the national team of my country did not cause bad emotions ... a grand game ... but in a series pennalti was stronger Croatian national team Sad .. I congratulate Croats and I wish them to become world champions Sad
 schwabo7/7/2018 10:58:41 PM GMT
Hi,pajalnick thank you very much,great game with great opponent,i hope we can beat England if we play like we can 100%,Croatia play better with better opponents.
And congratz to your team in 8th best countries is also good result but i know further your team go hungrier everybody become,we belive that we go to the end that is last chance for some players from that team.I hope final game Belgium-Croatia Thumbs Up Worship Worship Worship

ofcourse now you are sad because of this lost,especially after penalties,but you must look on way that this is great success and that nobody expected this in your country,because you couldnt win any friendly game!so you can be happy with this result!
and about records,this is first world cup that will be without one of three teams in semi-final:brasil,germany,argentina!
 CALICUL7/8/2018 9:47:01 PM GMT
Croatia or Belgium would deserve a world championship trophy because England does not deserve to win this trophy ( did not impress with their football ) and France even if he has a good team i would not want them to win this trophy. I hope a final between Belgium - Croatia.

I hope that in the finals will meet Belgia and Croatia and we will have a new world champion ... the French certainly did not impress with a good game in this championship but when they need they score goals ... and after Russia left the tournament I would like to see the Croats beat Englishmen
 Nightkid7/9/2018 6:13:11 PM GMT
Good soon we will have the last 4 games of this world cup and the truth and I do not even know who will take the cup this year haha since many good teams were left out will be what God sends hahaha Tongue
 Gerimantas7/9/2018 9:42:19 PM GMT
Not all record that say in this article.were.broke for example i too think that muller from germany can score 5 goals.but he score only 0 goals Big Smile and germany go home from group stage. But some record were broke
 CALICUL7/9/2018 9:53:04 PM GMT
Brazil became the team with the most goals scored in the history of the World Cup after the two goals scored in the victory against Mexico 2-0 final result. Selecao ( Brasil ) now has 228 goals compared to 226 of Germany. Brazil has other recordings in the World Cup of course and is hard for other countries to equalize.
