The Greatest Miracles Created By Footballers


We come across various exciting moments in the football matches but some moments are such exceptional that they are remembered as miracles for several years as records are created. Some last moment finishes, game-changing moments, excitement level, thrills, emotional scenes, etc. are the things we come across in a single game of football.

Some rare moments that have an unexpected impact on the game are what we call miracles. Let’s go through some of the miracles that happened in football history:

1# Robert Lewandowski’s 9-minute miracle

Robert Lewandowski created a record when he scored 5 goals in just 9 minutes way back in 2015 when FC Bayern won against Vfl Wolfsburg with a scoreline of 5-1 where all the 5 goals were scored by Lewandowski. He was substituted at half-time where he came in place of Thiago and created a moment to score the fastest number of goals ever scored by any Bundesliga player.

Pep was the manager of FC Bayern during that game. Just imagine if Lewandowski had started the game that day, then the outcome of the game would have been different. This match is one of the best to be remembered for FC Bayern till now.

2# Maradona’s goal of the century

Maradona created a record until now when Argentina and England played against each other in the 1986 FIFA World Cup Quarter-final. The first goal was scored after 51 minutes that was known as the “Hand of God goal” which Maradona scored by using his hand.

The 2nd goal from him came just after 4 minutes of the 1st goal where Maradona dribbled across 5 England players Beardsley, Butcher, Reid, Fenwick, Butcher (again), and finally the goalkeeper Peter Shilton and that goal was named as “the goal of the century”.

3# Ronaldo Nazario – Player of the Year at 20

Ronaldo Nazario became the youngest winner to become the Player of the Year in 1996 at the age of 20 years. The oldest one to win it was Fabio Cannavaro 33 years old in 2006.

Ronaldo Nazario was the youngest player who won the award 3 times in a row.  He is known as a perfect gem of football until now and is remembered for creating a huge number of records.

4# CR7 Completed Grand Slam with 2 Clubs

Former Manchester United player Cristiano Ronaldo created history by sweeping titles and Ballon D’or for 2 different clubs, Manchester United and Real Madrid. The grand slam term is mainly used in a tennis game and here it refers to major club trophies won by the player by staying at the club and the individual awards are also included in it.

Ronaldo won around 10 trophies during his time at Manchester United including Premier League titles, FA Cup, Champions League, etc, and 8 trophies from the Real Madrid side that included Supercopa, Champions League, La Liga title, etc.

5# Messi scored 91 goals in 1 calendar year

In 2012, Messi created a spectacular record by scoring a massive 91 goals in a single year. The Argentine star scored a total of 91 goals: 79 with Barcelona (59 in La Liga, 13 in the Champions League, 5 in Copa Del Rey and 2 in the Spanish Super Cup) + 12 with the Argentina National team.

He surpassed the record of Gerd Muller of 85 goals in 1972. He scored for the Bayern Munich side and Germany National team.

These were some of the best moments of miracles  in the history of football that are cherished until now.
