5 records that Messi and Ronaldo can never beat

Football legends Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are record holders, but there are crazy records that both superstars will never be able to beat. Fortunately, they are not all honourable
Here are 5 records that are still out of their range:

1. Record of the fastest red card
Celtic Cross Farm Park forward Lee Todd holds the fastest red card record in history. In 2000 in England, he was expelled two seconds after the kick-off for using foul language.

2. Record goals against his side in a match
Goals against his side are among the cruellest game facts of football and it would be difficult or impossible to see Messi or Ronaldo defend and score three goals against his side in one game. In 1995, Stan Van Den Buys scored three goals against his side in the Jupiler League match between his club, Germinal Ekeren and Anderlecht.

3. Most goals scored by a player in a match
The record for most goals scored by a single player in a match is held by Archie Thompson. In April 2001 in a qualifying match for the 2002 World Cup, the Australian scored 13 goals against American Samoa. The match ended with a score of 31-0.

4. Most goal score by a player in the world
Just Fontaine scored 13 goals in the 1958 World Cup, a record that has never been beaten. The former striker became the top scorer in one World Cup.

5. Record the highest number of yellow cards in a season
Mark Hughes, Lee Cattermole Paul Ince and Robbie Savage all received 14 yellow cards in a Premier League season.
