Ederson's Guinness World Record For The Longest Kick In Football Is Still Baffling

Ederson's Guinness World Record For The Longest Kick In Football Is Still Baffling

Ederson's 70 yard assist for Raheem Sterling's winner in the Champions League on Wednesday night has reminded us of the time he scooped a Guinness World Record for the longest drop kick in football history.

The Brazilian, who has registered two assists this season, more than Jorginho, Fred and Naby Keita combined, posted a picture to Instagram after he was snapped with his achievement.

Ederson was presented with the accolade on Thursday 10 May, although it wasn't clear when this feat was achieved, until now.

As you can see in the footage above, Ederson smashes the world record by a 0.35 metres, as the previous record was 75m.

It has been a remarkable debut season for Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson.

After being brought in for a world-record fee last year, expectation was high but the 24-year-old has been a rock between the sticks for Pep Guardiola's side in recent months, breaking the hoodoo of bad goalkeepers

Shortly after wrapping up a deal to sign for City, Ederson made his Brazil national team debut and marked his first outing for his country with a clean sheet in a 3-0 win over Chile.

Jesus, who was Brazil's top scorer in qualifying, should have had a hat-trick. His City teammate Ederson found him in the 23rd minute with an utterly ridiculous 90-yard goal-kick that dropped right at his feet.
