Nobody has done that before. Professional goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand has secured an entry in the Guinness Book of Records. Because he threw the ball as far as nobody before.
As far as he throws, others don’t even shoot. Alireza Beiranvand, goalkeeper of the Iranian national team, has achieved something special. In the 2018 World Cup qualifier against South Korea on October 11, 2016, he threw the ball an incredible 61.26 meters. As far as no goalkeeper before.
That is why he has now been awarded a certificate and entry in the Guinness Book of Records.
With his record drop, he initiated a great opportunity for his team that almost resulted in a goal. Beiranvand had his most famous moment so far at the World Cup in Russia when he parried a penalty from superstar Cristiano Ronaldo in the group game against Portugal (1-1).
The 29-year-old Beiranvand is under contract with Eintracht Frankfurt’s Europa League opponent Royal Antwerp. Since the beginning of the season he has been loaned to the Portuguese club Boavista Porto. So far, he has completed 43 international matches for Iran.
